The college was established in 1987 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development as the first collegiate business college in India.
The college was established as 'College of Business Studies' under the aegis of the Delhi University in 1987. Dr.S S Gulshan was the visionary behind the idea of undergraduate business management education, and was appointed as the Principal of the college.
In 1991, the College of Business Studies was the first college in Delhi University to adopt the semester system, for its BBS course. After 19 years, the semester system was then implemented in all courses across the university in 2010.
The college was rechristened as 'Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies' in 1997, to pay homage to Indian revolutionary Sukhdev Thapar who along with Bhagat Singh and Shivaram Rajguru became part of independence folklore for their sacrifice.
In 1999, the college became the only college in the country to offer the BFIA programme, a core Finance based programme spread over six semesters. Till 2013, SSCBS was the only college in the Delhi University to offer the BFIA course.
