Record Series 290 contains evaluations of the Graduate School of Management conducted by the American Assembly of Collegiate
Schools of Business (AACSB) for the years 1958-1983.
In 1939 the College of Business Administration at UCLA was authorized to institute a M.B.A. [Masters in Business Administration]
program and the first 27 graduate students in business entered the university. A doctoral program was initiated in 1953, and
in 1955 the graduate programs were used to form a graduate school of business separate from the undergraduate school. Special
agencies were then added to the graduate school, among them Western Data Processing Center (1956) and the Western Management
Science Institute (1960). In 1961 a master of science degree was added to the graduate school's curriculum and the school
library was established. Before the end of the 1960s, the undergraduate school and its B.S. degree in Business Administration
were phased out, leaving the Graduate School of Business Administration as the only source of business education on the UCLA
campus. The present name of John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management was bestowed on the school in 1987.
