The origin of the College of Business Education (CBE) is closely linked to the history of the Nation itself. It was soon after Independence on 9th December 1961, that the newly independent state found itself in need of trained personnel to Commercial and Industrial activities. At that time there were very few nationals with commercial education and expertise. The need to train nationals for the commercial sector therefore gave birth to a business training institute in the country.

In 1965 the establishing Act of the College, Act of Parliament No. 31 of 1965 was enforced. The said Act gave the College its legal status as an autonomous institution with its Governing Body. The duties of the Governing Body were to govern and administer the College activities under the Ministry responsible for Trade. His Excellency, J.K. Nyerere, the first President of the United Republic of Tanzania officially opened the new College in January 1965. The College was officially named the “College of Business Education” (CBE).
