Walsh College is awarding the Kulkarni International Students Scholarship to selected international students who want a scholarship to support their study costs at the Institution.
Why choose to study at Walsh College? Walsh College provides a transformative business education that combines theory, application, and professional experience to prepare graduates for successful careers. The college is committed to its mission and passionate in its advocacy as it embraces its diverse society and provides opportunities for all. Walsh operates at the highest level and seeks continuous improvement collaboratively.
The college began with the founding of the Walsh Institute of Accountancy and the introduction of the Pace Accounting Method, at the time an innovative way of teaching accounting. Mervyn B. Walsh, a certified public accountant, purchased a Pace & Pace franchise to offer the Pace Accounting Method exclusively in Detroit. He founded the Walsh Institute of Accountancy on July 7, 1922, and on September 18 of that year, 23 students were enrolled in the first courses at the institute.
When Mervyn Walsh retired in 1965, the State of Michigan had adopted a new bachelor’s degree requirement for candidates to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Examination. At this time, Michigan’s community college system was developing and a pivotal decision was made to build upon, rather than compete with, the community colleges by becoming an upper-division college.
On December 31, 1968, Walsh Institute became an upper-division college offering a business education to juniors and seniors who had finished two years of college. The new Walsh College of Accountancy and Business Administration forged partnerships with Oakland and Macomb community colleges and in 1970 broke ground for a 10,000-square-foot building in Troy, Michigan, near both colleges. Community college partnerships continued to flourish over the next two decades, and business leaders were invited to teach and develop curriculum.
The college offered its first bachelor’s degrees, a Bachelor of Accountancy and Bachelor of Business Administration, in 1970. The first graduate degree, the Master of Science in Taxation, was offered in 1974. The following year, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA) accredited Walsh College. Over the next several years, Walsh introduced Master of Science degrees in Professional Accountancy (1980), Finance (1986), and Management (1989). During the 1990s, the College continued to enlarge its facilities, offer classes at other locations in metropolitan Detroit, and introduce new degrees and online technology. The Master of Science in Information Management and Communication (MSIMC) degree was introduced in 1996.
In 1998 the Novi campus was opened and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree was introduced. The first online courses were offered in 1998.
