Strayer’s Business College was founded in 1892 by Dr. S. Irving Strayer. This first campus was located in Baltimore, Maryland. Twelve years later, in 1904, the college’s second campus opened in Washington D.C. The school’s name was changed to Strayer University (SU) in 1998 when it received its university status.
Since then, in 2011, the school has added the Jack Welch Management Institute. Through this school, the university offers the Executive MBA program that is endorsed by Jack Welch himself.
Strayer is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
