Brown Mackie College – Why Work For Us?

The Brown Mackie College family of schools has a long history that began with the opening of the Kansas Wesleyan School of Business on September 12, 1892.

In 1938, the school was incorporated as The Brown Mackie School of Business under the ownership of former Kansas Wesleyan School of Business instructors Mr. Perry E. Brown and Mr. A.B. Mackie.

In following years, this school and others that were to become part of the Brown Mackie College family of schools were operated by numerous organizations and eventually were united under the parent company of American Education Centers (AEC), founded in 1993 and headquartered in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky.

In 2003, AEC was acquired by Education Management Corporation, operating out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The family of schools was renamed Brown Mackie College the following year and includes schools formerly know as Southern Ohio College in Ohio and Kentucky, Asher School of Business in Georgia, Commonwealth Business College in Indiana and Illinois, Michiana College in Indiana, RETS Institute of Technology in Kentucky, and AEC Texas Institute.

Since 1892 the Brown Mackie College family of schools has grown, and now has more than 25 schools in 15 states all across the United States.

    I have been working at Brown Mackie College full-time (more than a year)


    Best thing about working here is the fact that you really do change lives. When you talk to these students and listen to their stories, its brings you to a stage of humbleness. Also the pay is pretty awesome too!


    Making sure you hit your numbers! My background is in sales so I have that commission mindset when trying to hit goal, even though you can't get commission in higher education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great leadership in Admissions..but the president can be a tad bit STUPID!
