The Forbes School of Business & Technology, also known as FSBT & Forbes Business School, is an online business school within Ashford University. It offers degree completion programs at bachelors and masters levels in business administration and information technology.

                                     

1. History

The Forbes School of Business was formed In 2013, after Ashford University announced an alliance with Forbes Media. Under the terms of the alliance, Ashfords College of Business & Professional studies would be renamed as the Forbes School of Business. Students of the college would be able to gain free premium access to Forbes online content, and attend Ashfords Distinguished Lecturer Series, where Steve Forbes and MBA Program Chair Diane Hamilton would make frequent appearances. The school, since its inception, had a goal towards "retaining the strong brand recognition that comes with the Forbes name, while maintaining a clear and direct connection under Ashford University." The school, as of today, has never received official endorsements from Forbes directly.

In 2016, the school changed its name from the Forbes School of Business to the Forbes School of Business & Technology, offering internet technology degrees. Just a year later, the Forbes School of Business & Technology would receive a special accreditation from the International Accreditation Council for Business Education IACBE to offer accounting degrees. Within the same year, the Forbes School of Business & Technology would name the biomedical company Nano LiquiTec as having the "Best Business Idea 2017."

The Forbes School of Business & Technology announced in April 2019 that it would offer new Bachelors programs in cyber security and mobile app technology. These technology degree completion programs are the only Bachelor and Master of Science offerings in the entire school. To this date, the school it offers 31 degree programs.

In late 2019, the school announced that the book Cracking the Curiosity Code, written by former MBA Program Chair Diane Hamilton, would be adopted across the schools Master of Human Resources MAHR curriculum. Hamiltons assessment called the Curiosity Code Index was also implemented in the MAHR curriculum, which measured treats which impacted curiosity. Katy Thiry, the schools HR Program Chair justified the implementations, writing "Dr. Hamiltons work can add value to students by supporting the development of marketable skills which lead to long-term career success." FBST Curriculum Developer Chitra Anand also had her book, The Greenhouse Approach: Cultivating Intrapreneurship in Companies and Organizations, also made required reading throughout the schools business programs.
