With an impressive tradition dating back to 1919, Queen’s School of Business has long been one of the world’s premier business schools, with an international reputation for its innovative approaches to business education. On October 1, 2015, the School began a new chapter in its impressive history. In recognition of the generous gift of $50 million from Queen’s alumnus Stephen Smith, the School has a new name – The Stephen J.R. Smith School of Business at Queen’s University. This extraordinary gift, the largest gift ever made to a Canadian business school, will enable the school to continue to transform business education, enhance the student experience, and attract the best and brightest talent from across Canada and around the world. Queen's University received its royal charter from Queen Victoria and began operations in Kingston, Ontario in March 1842. Sir John A. Macdonald (Canada's first Prime Minister) was practicing law in Kingston at the time, but it wasn't until the following year that he first held public office as a city alderman. The industrial revolution was just beginning in Britain, steamboats were prevalent on the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes, and the railways were just appearing in North America.
