A Century of Leadership in Business Higher Education
Founded in 1919, the Moore School has a history of innovative educational leadership, blending academic preparation with real-world experience through internships, consulting projects, study abroad programs and entrepreneurial opportunities. The Moore School has grown into a thriving site of academic excellence with an enrollment of more than 5,500 undergraduate students and more than 800 graduate students. The school offers a wide range of programs in nine undergraduate concentrations, seven master’s degree and two Ph.D. degrees as well as executive education programs and consulting services to the business community.
In 1998, the school was named for South Carolina native Darla Moore, making the University of South Carolina the first major university to name its business school after a woman.
In December of 2013, the Darla Moore School of Business took occupancy of its new home at the gateway to the university’s Innovista research district. The Moore School’s new building is designed to enhance learning, research and collaboration and will set a new standard for innovation and energy efficiency in higher education facilities.
