Biographical/Historical Note

Roanoke National Business College was established in 1886 when a group of visionary educators and business people saw a need for focused, career-based training in the southeastern United States. The College offered training for business, banking, accounting, administrative, and other professionals. Through its first century, National College steadily developed a reputation for providing men and women with an efficient and effective education preparing them for the world of professional work. Students from many states made the trek to Roanoke, Virginia, to receive a practical education that was more focused and relevant than that offered by other colleges and universities of the time.
