Ateneo Graduate School of Business

A Brief History

The Graduate School of the Ateneo de Manila was first established in 1948, with Master of Arts programs in Education and English as its initial offerings.  Over time, other fields of study were introduced, among them Sociology, Economics, Philosophy, and Business Administration.

As its offerings grew in size and complexity, the Graduate School eventually found it necessary to split into two separate entities, and in 1960 the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the Graduate School of Economics and Business Administration were born.

The Graduate School of Economics and Business Administration initially offered only two part-time evening programs: a Master of Arts in Economics, and a Master in Business Administration.   A full-time MBA was added to its program portfolio in 1964.  Two years later, the Master of Arts in Economics was transferred to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the school was reorganized into the present-day Ateneo Graduate School of Business, or AGSB.

Message From the Dean

R Ang (1)

Rodolfo P. Ang

Dean, Ateneo Graduate School of Business

Welcome to the Ateneo Graduate School of Business!Although students have many different motivations for pursuing graduate studies in business, I imagine most of our students come to us out of a desire to develop their potential to the fullest of their ability; a desire to unleash their capabilities so that they can achieve better performance for their organizations, whether as managers or as entrepreneurs.In your desire to create a better future for yourselves, I hope that you will not forget your responsibility to include others in your plans. I hope that somewhere in your dream to “build a better tomorrow”, you remember to make tomorrow not just better for yourselves, but for the people and the communities around you, as well. Our gifts and talents were not given to us to be used solely for our own benefit, but to be shared with others so that everyone can benefit.Here at AGSB, we passionately believe that your education is incomplete if it focuses only on technical training, and ignores formation. We cannot just help you to gain the skills to run your organization better; we need to help you to grow as a total person.

Our core beliefs are perfectly encapsulated in this excerpt from our vision statement.

Expertise without integrity is empty.
Integrity without expertise is ineffectual.
Expertise and integrity without service is irrelevant.

We hope that all of our students and graduates will take this to heart.

It is my deepest pleasure to welcome you into the AGSB community!
