The original Brown Mackie College was founded in 1892 in Salina, Kansas as the Kansas Wesleyan School of Business. In 1938, two of its former instructors, Perry E. Brown and A.B. Mackie, incorporated the school as The Brown Mackie School of Business. The school was licensed by the Kansas Board of Regents to grant associate degrees in 1986.
Between the 1930s and 1990s the school in Salina, and other schools that would later carry the Brown Mackie name, were managed by several different organizations before being purchased by American Education Centers (AEC) in 1993. In 2003, Education Management Corporation (EDMC) acquired eighteen schools from AEC, including the original Brown Mackie College. The following year, EDMC rebranded all of the AEC schools under the Brown Mackie name. Throughout the mid-to-late 2000s EDMC expanded the Brown Mackie system through the construction of new Brown Mackie colleges.
In 2011, investigations into the recruiting practices of the school were launched by the Attorneys General of Kentucky and Indiana.
Beginning in the spring of 2012, Brown Mackie began a pilot program to test the use of iPads and e-textbooks in place of traditional textbooks. Later the program was expanded to all 28 schools in the Brown Mackie system. In preparation for the transition, Brown Mackie partnered with Apple Inc. to train faculty members help students with the iPads. As of February 2013, 13,000 Brown Mackie students were participating in the program.
