Message From the Dean

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!
