Bookkeeping classes were taught at the Gustavus Adolphus Academy beginning in the 1880s. From 1887-1922, all business classes were taught at the Gustavus Adolphus School of Commerce. When the commerce school closed due to dwindling numbers, the Sociology and Economic Department was born. Economics has at one time been paired with Sociology, Business Administration, and/or Business Education. The modern configuration of the Economics & Management Department began during 1985.
