History

Founded in 1912, the Driehaus College of Business was among the first 10 business colleges in the United States and the first at an American Catholic university. The college is named for DePaul alumnus Richard H. Driehaus in recognition of his longtime partnership with his alma mater and $30 million gift in 2012.

The college's business graduate school and MBA program were introduced in 1948. The school was named the Charles H. Kellstadt Graduate School of Business in 1992 to honor the former CEO and chairman of Sears, Roebuck & Co.
