- 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.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
