Rasmussen College History
A century of preparing students for success
When Walter Rasmussen founded Rasmussen College at the turn of the century to meet the needs of a growing business class, the world was a different place.
Streetcars and electricity were still new ideas when the Rasmussen Practical School of Business opened its doors to train secretarial and accounting students on September 1, 1900 in St. Paul, Minnesota. But, while the times have certainly changed in more than 100 years of operation, the school’s ability to prepare students to succeed has not.
The Aim and Purpose of Rasmussen Practical Business School is twofold:
1. To prepare young men and women for responsible positions in all lines of business.
2. To help pupils win their way to a noble manhood or womanhood.
