History of Aarhus School of Business
On 15 September 2004, Aarhus School of Business (ASB) celebrated its 65th anniversary, making it one of Europe's oldest business schools.
Aarhus School of Business's predecessor, The Jutland Business School (Den Jyske Handelshøjskole, DJH), has a somewhat more extensive history, however. Already in the late 1800s, DJH provided business programmes to young people from Jutland who wished to follow studies within business, economics and trade. Only when Aarhus School of Business was founded in 1939 did it become the academic institution that it was known as today.
Aarhus School of Business has continually grown since its founding in 1968. Aarhus School of Business moved from the original location downtown Aarhus to the yellow and red brick buildings which since then have provided the setting for the outstanding research and teaching that Aarhus School of Business stood for.
Aarhus School of Business was an EQUIS accredited business school and held more than 7,000 students (a significant number of which were international students) and about 450 employees before the 2011 merger.
