About SME

History

The School of Management was initially created to address the need for well-trained technical managers in the industrial sectors of manufacturing and construction, which are two of the major private industry employers and economic drivers in the island. The university developed fields of study in industrial management in 1991 followed by construction management in 1994, the latter being the only one of its kind at the undergraduate level in Puerto Rico. Between 1995 and 2002 the School has gradually rounded its undergraduate offerings in the traditional business disciplines of accounting, marketing, information systems, management and finance.

At the graduate level, the School has offered since 1992 the first and only graduate program in engineering management, followed in later years by offerings in environmental management and business administration. Today, our well-rounded graduates are adequately represented in all sectors of the island’s economy, such as the public government, banking, and service industries, as well as in managing and developing their own business.
