The first business schools were established in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The first business school in the United States was the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, which was founded in 1881. Other early business schools in the US included the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, which was established in 1900, and the Harvard Business School, which was founded in 1908. In Europe, the first business schools were established in France, with the establishment of the École des Hautes Études Commerciales (HEC) in 1881 and the École Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (ESCP) in 1819. These early business schools were designed to provide students with practical business training and prepare them for careers in industry and commerce.
