LSB History

Lansdale School of Business was founded in April 1, 1918 by Walter E. Wireback and Wilbur M. Frantz. Founded to teach war courses to prepare servicemen to re-enter the job force after military service, the school offered bookkeeping and secretarial skills classes. Although times have changed, LSB’s philosophy has remained the same: to prepare students for the rapidly changing world of business. Lansdale School of Business has experienced increasing enrollment since 1918 and has moved several times to accommodate the growing needs of the students and expanding curricula.
