Abstract: Business Education had its beginning in the United States in the seventeenth century when the curricula, offered by a private instructor engaged by Plymouth Colony in 1635, included reading and writing, and for those who intended to engage in simple mercantile pursuits of the times, casting of accounts. Although there are no records to confirm it, there seems to be little doubt that bookkeeping, navagation, and surveying were taught in Boston and New York City prior to 1700. 2
