The School of Business is known for its leadership in business education, and executive training and development. This reputation is based on its long history of teaching excellence and research as well as its current vitality, creativity and commitment to its mission of improving the practice of management.

The teaching of business administration at the University began in 1965 when the Department of Business Administration was set up with only four full-time staff.  The Department of Business Administration and the Department of Accountancy were combined to form the Department of Accountancy and Business Administration in 1969.

With the merging of the two universities, the School of Accountancy and Business Administration was established in 1980. The new School comprised the Department of Accountancy and the Department of Business Administration.  In 1983, the School was reorganised into a Faculty with two schools – the School of Accountancy and the School of Management.  In 1987, the School of Accountancy was moved to the Nanyang Technological Institute. With that, the Faculty’s name was shortened to the Faculty of Business Administration. The Faculty was renamed the School of Business in 2002.

There are six academic departments and four centres in the School. The six academic departments are the Department of Accounting, the Department of Decision Sciences, the Department of Finance, the Department of Management and Organisation, the Department of Marketing, and the Department of Strategy and Policy.  Each department has its unique research interest and is responsible for teaching modules under the respective functions.  The four centres are the Centre for Asset Management Research & Investment, the Centre for Behavioural Economics, the Centre for Governance, Institutions & Organizations and the Centre for Social Entrepreneurship & Philanthropy and the Centre for Strategic Leadership. Collectively, the six academic departments offer modules in the Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.), Bachelor of Business Administration with Honours [B.B.A. (Hons.)], Bachelor of Business Administration (Accountancy) [B.B.A. (Acc.)] and Bachelor of Business Administration (Accountancy) with Honours [B.B.A. (Acc. Hons.)] Programmes.

In addition to the undergraduate degrees, the School also offers graduate programmes.
