History[edit]

Hawai‘i experienced rapid social and economic growth during the post-World War II period. To meet the challenges presented by this growth, the Hawai‘i state government alongside many state businesses encouraged the University of Hawai‘i to develop a College of Business to develop the state's future business leaders. In 1949, the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa College of Business Administration opened its doors to a small group of business students in the historic Hawaiʻi Hall building. While the College's initial curriculum provided a strong foundation to develop business leaders, its scope was limited to accounting, economics and industrial relations.

With Hawaii's sustained growth, the College also grew. In the early 1960s, the College recruited top business professors to help strengthen the existing program. Additional changes included strengthening the College in the area of liberal arts, requiring each student to minor in economics, and offering a general business program in fields such as management, finance, personnel and statistics.

In 1967, the College received national accreditation from Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), whereby placing it amongst the nation's best business schools.

With 1,300 students enrolled in the mid-60's, it became clear that the College was outgrowing its existing space at Hawai‘i Hall. In 1969, the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare provided a grant while spurred the construction of a new building. In the fall of 1971, the College moved into its new facility. In the next few years, the College continued to grow at an alarming rate almost doubling its size by the late 1970s.

In the mid-'70s to the early '90s, the College matured and gained worldwide recognition for its international business focus. Faculty members with expertise in Asian business were heavily recruited; foreign and United States mainland students with an interest in international studies were applying in greater numbers and exchange opportunities with international universities were created.

In 2006, the University of Hawai'i Board of Regents voted to accept a $25 million donation from The Shidler Group's Jay H. Shidler, a Honolulu commercial real estate investor and entrepreneur and a College alumnus, naming the College after him as the Shidler College of Business.[10][11]
