Our History

Founded in 1970 as the Graduate School of Administration, the UCR School of Business has grown to be the premier research and professional management school in the region. A transformational gift from the Anderson Family Foundation in 1995 gave the graduate school its namesake and propelled the campus to new heights of recognition on the national and international stage.

We are building a world-class environment that transcends physical structure to play a pivotal role in our community's social and economic landscape. The new UCR School of Business complex will not only be an innovative space, but a catalyst for research, economic development, and growth in the Inland Empire region.
