Founded in 1867 in Washington DC, just after the end of the Civil War, Howard University is one of the most highly respected historically-black universities in the nation. The only historically-black university to be recognized as a Research-1 school, Howard has always been non-denominational and co-educational, and remains partially funded by the federal government as its original charter indicated. It is the leading research facility for African and African-American documentation and has an astonishingly prestigious list of alumni.
The Howard University School of Business, founded in 1970, has been ranked as one of the best business schools in the nation by US News and World Report, as well as The Princeton Review. The online Executive MBA is designed for students with substantial professional experience who wish to reach higher levels of success. The 42-credit hour program can be completed in only 18 months.
