Pioneering Keller Graduate School Of Management Turns 40

Stocks in this article: DV

This month, DeVry University celebrates the 40 th anniversary of its Keller Graduate School of Management. Throughout its four-decade history, the institution has established itself as a pioneer in graduate-level higher education, with more than 50,000 alumni who are proud to call Keller Graduate School of Management their alma mater.

Founded as the CBA Institute in 1973 by Dennis Keller and Ron Taylor, the Chicago-based institution became Keller Graduate School of Management in 1976. The institution quickly established its commitment to quality education by becoming the first private-sector institution to receive regional accreditation from The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC/NCA) in 1977. Originally offering a Certificate in Business Administration, the institution later became the forerunner of the “Executive MBA” programs that would emerge decades later.

In 1987, Keller Graduate School of Management acquired DeVry Institute of Technology to create DeVry Inc. In 1998, Keller was one of the first graduate schools to offer its master’s degree programs online. In 2002, Keller Graduate School of Management and DeVry Institute of Technology merged to form DeVry University.

“For the past 40 years, Keller Graduate School of Management has maintained a commitment to serving the needs of working adult students and the organizations that employ them,” said Donna Loraine, Ph.D., vice president of academic affairs and dean of Keller Graduate School of Management at DeVry University. “We have broadened our program offerings and continue to deliver a career-oriented education that prepares students to achieve their educational and career goals.”

To celebrate 40 years of alumni success, DeVry University is compiling “40 for 40 th,” a collection of profiles and perspectives from the graduate school’s alumni now serving in top management positions and influential roles in today’s dynamic business world. Featured Keller Graduate School of Management alumni include:

  • Dr. William D. Barnhart (’88), chief of geriatrics, University of Illinois College of Medicine-Chicago
  • Dean DeBiase (’84), chairman and CEO, Reboot Partners
  • Susan Malecha (’91), national lead, Managed Care Liaisons, Genentech
  • Alex Marchetti (’77), president, Whitestone Marketing
  • William S. Marth (’89), president and CEO, Teva North America and Teva USA
  • Dr. Manu K. Vora (’85), chairman and president, Business Excellence, Inc.
