McCann School of Business was founded by Louis C. McCann in 1897 in Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania, as a school of accountancy and secretarial training. Louis McCann’s sons, Dwight and Charles, entered the field and held administrative positions at the school and its additional locations. After the death of Dwight McCann in 1956, Dorothy Houser began serving as director. In 1959, Ms. Houser purchased the school in partnership with her husband, Harry D. Houser.

In 1981, James and Elizabeth Noone purchased the school from the Housers and McCann Education Centers, Inc. was formed. In 1995, the school opened an additional location in Pottsville, Pennsylvania to provide a better service and quality of education to residents of southern Schuykill County. A third campus of McCann commenced operations in September, 1998, in downtown Sunbury, Northumberland County.

In August 2002, McCann Educational Centers Inc. was acquired by the company now known as Delta Career Education Corporation headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The Scranton campus opened in 2003 and relocated to Dickson City, Lackawanna County, in 2008. The original Mahanoy City campus relocated to Hazleton in 2005, and in 2009 the school opened additional locations in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and Allentown, Pennsylvania. In 2010, the Pottsville campus opened an additional location in Macon, Georgia and in 2011 opened an additional location in Gulfport, MI. The Macon and Gulfport campuses are named Miller-Motte Technical College. They share the name of the Miller-Motte family of schools, also owned by Delta Career Education Corporation. In early 2012, an additional location of McCann was opened in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

In 2012, McCann School of Business & Technology merged with Miami-Jacobs Career College and the Academy of Court Reporting. Pottsville remains the main campus and additional locations were acquired, as a result of the merger, in Dayton, Springboro, Troy, Columbus, Sharonville and Independence Ohio. All of the acquired schools share the name Miami-Jacobs Career College.
