Ateneo Graduate School of Business (AGSB)

Introduction

The Graduate School of the Ateneo de Manila University was set up in 1948 at the Padre Faura campus. The initial offerings were the Master of Arts programs in Education and English. Other fields of study were eventually added, including Sociology, Economics, Speech and Dramatic Arts, Psychology and Guidance, History, Political Science, Philosophy, and Business Administration. In 1960, the Graduate School was split into the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School of Economics and Business Administration.

As a Jesuit institution whose identity and purpose is derived from a tradition of service and a standard of academic excellence, we are committed to:

  • Developing and nurturing leaders and managers who are guided by principles, imbued with a sense of service, and equipped with effective management skills. We believe that expertise without integrity is empty and integrity without expertise is ineffectual, while expertise and integrity without service is irrelevant.
  • Educating and forming leaders and managers using facilitative learning methodologies that integrate technical, technological, political, and ethical dimensions, in both theory and practice. We believe that intellectual rigor and strength of character form the essential foundation for business professionals.
  • Enhancing the personal and professional growth of our faculty and staff. We believe that success in fulfilling our mission is decided by the dedication of the members of our organization.
  • Drawing on the expertise of our faculty, the different units of the University, as well as strategic partners to address the challenges of technology, competition and being up-to-date in domestic and global settings. We believe that in harnessing the resources of our various stakeholders in an interactive and integrated manner we remain effective and relevant in the changing times.

The AGSB seeks to serve the need for management and business education of individuals and institutional clients both in the private and the public sectors of our community. For each of these sectors, the AGSB defines and assesses the training needs, then designs the most appropriate programs and course offering to meet these needs. This attempt to tailor-fit each course determines the strength and relevance of the programs and offerings of the AGSB.
