The University of Western Ontario created the Department of Commercial Economics within the Faculty of Arts in 1922 to offer elective course work in business. The first degree program was the Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in Business Administration (HBA). The school has been consistently ranked as one of Canada's top business schools

St. Mary's University, founded in 1852 by Marianist brothers and priests, is the first institution of higher learning in San Antonio and the oldest Catholic university in Texas and the Southwest. Personal attention and powerful academic programs have made St. Mary's, located on 135 acres northwest of downtown San Antonio, a nationally recognized liberal arts institution. With a diverse student population of nearly 4,000 of all faiths and backgrounds, St. Mary's is home to five schools: Humanities and Social Sciences, Bill Greehey School of Business, Science, Engineering and Technology, Graduate, and Law. The University provides a Catholic education experience that evokes academic excellence while integrating liberal studies, professional preparation and ethical commitment. St. Mary's 192 full-time faculty members, 94 percent of whom hold doctoral or terminal degrees in their fields, are committed to student success in and out of the classroom. St. Mary's has approximately 70 undergraduate and graduate majors and offers over 120 degree programs, which include two doctoral and two law programs. The student/faculty ratio of 13-to-1 permits small classes and promotes active learning. The Marianists who came to San Antonio in 1852 responded to the call of their superiors to establish an educational institution to regenerate the people of the city. Through their work and the work of those who followed them, St. Mary's University has maintained its reputation as "a noble institution destined to be a great education center of the Southwest." St. Mary's serves the various communities of San Antonio, the Southwest, the nation and the world through the intellectual, spiritual, moral and professional leadership of its faculty, administration, staff and students.

AllianceBernstein offers a comprehensive range of investment services across regions and along the risk/return spectrum including: (1) style-pure growth equities and value equities (2) style blend equities (3) fixed-income (4) index and structured services (5) alternative investments and (6) customized and packaged multi-asset class products.AllianceBernstein's value equity strategies seek to deliver superior returns through investments in stocks that are priced below their long-term earnings power, as forecasted by the firm's in-house analysts. The firm looks for stocks that are mispriced relative to the company's long-term prospects and seek to capitalize on improvements in the company's stock price as its earnings recover and the market's anxiety fades. They offer global, regional and single-country value investment strategies, in both developed and developing markets. In select areas, AllianceBernstein offers a variety of value services including a more diversified portfolio with more modest risk and reward targets and deep-value services that focus on maximizing premiums with minimal risk constraints.AllianceBernstein's growth investment strategies employ internal bottom-up research to identify companies with powerful competitive advantages, strong business franchises, growing markets and exceptional management teams.

They invest in companies they believe are capable of consistently exceeding consensus expectations.AllianceBernstein has the capability of building growth portfolios in virtually any combination of developed or emerging markets.

They look for companies that are growing rapidly, and then focus on companies that are well-positioned to surprise the market on the upside.AllianceBernstein's blend investment strategies combine growth and value portfolios on a 50/50 basis and employ a disciplined rebalancing process. The firm combines style-pure services to create active style-blend equity products that offer strong excess return potential from active management, with less expected risk than is typical for active portfolios with comparable return objectives.
