The Eller College supports and develops a community of scholars and learners whose knowledge, integrity, and entrepreneurial spirit will transform business and society. The Eller College of Management began as a 1913 bachelor’s degree program in commerce before becoming the UA School of Business and Public Administration in 1944. In 1998, it was renamed the Eller College of Business and Public Administration, which was condensed to Eller College of Management in 2004. The school is named for alumnus and entrepreneur Karl Eller (BSBA Marketing ’52), the founder of Eller Outdoor Advertising, Combined Communications Corporation, and Eller Media Company. He is also past CEO of Columbia Pictures Communications and Circle K Corporation, and was inducted into the Advertising Hall of Fame in 2004, the first Arizonan to have that honor.
