Welcome to The Art Institute of Charlotte
Founded in 1973, American Business & Fashion Institute was originally located in the Charlotte Merchandise Mart and offered programs in Secretarial Science and Fashion Merchandising. During the first decade, additional programs were added, and the institution earned accreditation as a business school, recognition by the U.S. Department of Education, and approval from the Veterans Administration. In 1999, American Business & Fashion Institute joined The Art Institutes system of schools, changing its name to The Art Institute of Charlotte. The school moved to its current location in September of 2001. In August of 2012, The Art Institute of Charlotte became a campus of South University. In December of 2016, The Art Institute of Charlotte became a branch of Miami International University of Art & Design.
