Business Professional Programs in Bangor, Maine
Beal College was originally a business-focused school, founded by Miss Mary Beal and partners in 1891. Known initially as Bangor Business College, the school taught banking, finance, accounting, business arithmetic, penmanship, business writing, commercial law, shorthand, and typewriting.
By the time the school – then called Beal Business College – celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1941, it offered 2-year degree programs. In 1968, Beal College was authorized to grant Associate Degrees of Science, and in 1970 it was accredited as a junior college of business by the Accreditation Commission for Business Schools in Washington, D.C.
As the College grew, Beal expanded its program offerings, seeking to fill employment gaps within the Bangor community and beyond. Beal College now provides healthcare, trades, criminal justice, counseling, and IT programs in addition to business courses.
At Beal, we never have never forgotten our business beginnings, and we are proud to be continuously achieving Miss Mary Beal’s vision of producing adept business students. And you could be the next one!
