School Notes:

Duff´s Business Institute has a long-standing history of providing quality, relevant education to students. It is nationally recognized as the oldest business school in the country, offering superior skills and training since its inception. Peter Duff, a thirty-seven-year-old Scotsman, ventured into the city on his way to rebuild his molasses business in New Orleans. Known for his knowledge and proficiency, Duff provided accounting education to the local townspeople. As the number of students rapidly increased, Duff dedicated his efforts to providing business training on a full-time basis. In 1851, a perpetual charter was granted by the Pennsylvania legislature, enabling Duff´s Mercantile College to become the first business college in the United States. The college has been known as Duff's Mercantile College, The Pioneer Business College in America, Iron City Commercial College, Duff's Iron City College, and Duff's Business Institute. Our programs emphasize real-world training that is tailored to meet the needs of potential employers. The fields of study focus on industries that offer solid, long-term career opportunities for graduates. Here at our campus, we maintain a well-defined program philosophy of providing a quality education that emphasizes practical skills; employ a highly skilled and dedicated faculty; and cater to students seeking a strong knowledge base and the experience needed to succeed in their chosen fields. The college offers programs in Accounting, Administrative Secretary, Business Administration, Career Access Program, Criminal Justice, Legal Administrative Secretary, Medical Administrative Secretary, Medical Assistant, Medical Insurance Billing/Coding, Paralegal, Patient Care Technician and Pharmacy Technician. The college provides a positive learning environment, offering small class sizes, experienced faculty members, and placement assistance.
