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


Jowett Cecilio F. Magsaysay, PhD.
Dean, Ateneo Graduate School of Business


Welcome to our new AGSB students!

Good afternoon, and welcome to the Ateneo Graduate School of Business!

You’re entering your MBA life at a crucial time. Even before the pandemic, the forces of change had been swirling around us – the clamor for social and economic change, the disruptions caused by technology advancement, the multiple demands on the corporation to value all its stakeholders.

And then there is the ongoing pandemic. Among the transformations that it has brought about on the world is the mode of learning to which we – students, faculty, and administration of our school – have had to adapt quickly.

It’s been a great blessing that students have shown that they could adapt well to this new online learning environment, and at the Ateneo Graduate School of Business we are committed to continue finding ways to make this kind of learning experience an effective and, yes, even an enjoyable one.

Congratulations on your decision to make the best investment you could make – an investment in yourself, for which you could reap rewards throughout your career.

Good luck on your studies, and as we say in the Ateneo, know that everything you will be doing in your MBA life is Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam – those who will see you do your best, who will see you excel as a professional for others, will see God’s glory.
