School Notes:

The Minnesota School of Business was founded in 1877 by Professor Alexander R. Archibald who came from Dartmouth College. The school was among the first to teach students how to use the Stenotype machine, calculators, adding machines, and typewriters. In 1929, the school was sold to the Correll and Kamprath families and was relocated to 24 South Seventh Street. The school moved again in 1979 to the Chamber of Commerce Building at 11 South Fifth Street. ITT Educational Services, Inc. purchased the school in 1969. In 1988 Terry Myhre purchased the school from ITT and in 1993 relocated it to the current location in Richfield, MN. In 1989 the first branch campus was opened in Brooklyn Center. In 2002 the Plymouth branch campus was opened. Two new campus additions, St. Cloud and Shakopee were opened in 2004. The newest addition is the Rochester campus which opened in Fall of 2005.
