About HSB

A new b-school with a 150-year history

When Oglethorpe University relocated to Atlanta in 1870, it was one of the first institutions offering business and commerce courses in the US. The Hammack School of Business, launched in fall of 2019, represents the newest chapter in that innovative history.

This transformational stage is made possible by a $50 million gift from Oglethorpe alumnus Q. William “Bill” Hammack, Jr. ’73 — the largest gift in Oglethorpe’s 182-year history.

Led by the vision of Dean Dennis Kelly, Hammack is a place where creative, curious and compassionate students can unlock their superpowers, becoming business leaders who make a difference.

By making this gift to Oglethorpe, I hope to help a new generation of business leaders find their own success. – Bill Hammack ’73
