Harvard Business School (HBS) is the graduate business school of Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. The school offers a large full-time MBA program, doctoral programs, HBX and many executive education programs. It owns Harvard Business School Publishing, which publishes business books, leadership articles, online management tools for corporate learning, case studies, and the monthly Harvard Business Review. Harvard's MBA program is ranked #1 in the world by Bloomberg, #1 by the Financial Times, #1 by BusinessInsider and #2 by US News and World Report and Forbes Magazine.

Harvard Business School was established in 1908, initially by the humanities faculty, it received independent status in 1910, and became a separate administrative unit in 1913. The first dean was historian Edwin Francis Gay (1867-1946). Yogev (2001) explains the original concept:
This school of business and public administration was originally conceived as a school for diplomacy and government service on the model of the French Ecole des Sciences Politiques. The goal was an institution of higher learning that would offer a master of arts degree in the humanities field, with a major in business. In discussions about the curriculum, the suggestion was made to concentrate on specific business topics such as banking, railroads, and so on... Professor Lowell said Harvard Business School would train qualified public administrators whom the government would have no choice but to employ, thereby building a better public administration... Harvard was blazing a new trail by educating young people for a career in business, just as its medical school trained doctors and its law faculty trained lawyers. The business school pioneered the development of the case method of teaching, drawing inspiration from this approach to legal education at Harvard. Cases are typically descriptions of real events in organizations. Students are positioned as managers and are presented with problems which they need to analyse and provide recommendations on.
From the start Harvard Business School enjoyed a close relationship with the corporate world. Within a few years of its founding many business leaders were its alumni and were hiring other alumni for starting positions in their firms.
At its founding, Harvard Business School accepted only male students. The Training Course in Personnel Administration, founded at Radcliffe College in 1937, was the beginning of business training for women at Harvard. HBS took over administration of that program from Radcliffe in 1954. In 1959, alumnae of the one-year program (by then known as the Harvard-Radcliffe Program in Business Administration) were permitted to apply to join the HBS MBA program as second-years. In December 1962, the faculty voted to allow women to enter the MBA program directly. The first women to apply directly to the MBA program matriculated in September 1963.

Some history

The School of Management at UCLA was founded in 1935, and the MBA degree was authorized by the UC Regents four years later. In its early years the school was primarily an undergraduate institution, although this began to change in the 1950s after the appointment of Neil H. Jacoby as dean; the last undergraduate degree was awarded in 1969. UCLA is rare among public universities in the U.S. for not offering undergraduate business administration degrees. Undergraduate degrees in business economics are offered. In 1950, the school was renamed the School of Business Administration. Five years later it became the Graduate School of Business Administration; in the 1970s the school's name was changed again to the Graduate School of Management. In 1987, John E. Anderson (1917-2011), class of 1940, donated $15 million to the school and prompted the construction of a new complex at the north end of UCLA's campus. He later donated additional $25 million. The 6-building, 285,000-square-foot (26,500 m2) facility, was designed by Henry N. Cobb of the architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and Executive Architects Leidenfrost/Horowitz & Associates. It cost $75 million to construct and opened officially in 1995. On May 13, 2015, Marion Anderson, widow of the late John Anderson, announced a $100 million donation (4th single-largest donation to a business school in the United States) to the school for fellowships and research, along with $40 million earmarked for initiating development of what is now known as the Marion Anderson Hall. Recently, the school has been mostly self-funded, with only $6 million of government funding out of its $96 million budget in 2010-11. In fall 2010, the school proposed "financial self-sufficiency": Giving up all state funding, in return for freedom from some state rules and freedom to raise tuition.[6] Critics called this proposal "privatization", but the school rejected this description, with former Dean Judy Olian saying, "This is not privatization.... We will continue to be part of UCLA and part of the state." The proposal met objections in the UCLA Academic Senate (faculty members from all UCLA departments), and is still pending. Update: This decision was approved by the University of California President Mark Yudof in June 2013. In July 2018, Judy D. Olian, who served as dean of UCLA's Anderson School of Management, became Quinnipiac's first female president when she took over for John Lahey, who retired in June 2018. Alfred Osborne, associate senior dean of external affairs and a professor at the UCLA Anderson School of Management, began serving as the school's interim dean on July 1, 2018. Antonio Bernardo, a member of the finance faculty since 1994, was appointed UCLA Anderson's ninth dean, effective July 1, 2019.

The campus

The school is located on north part of the UCLA campus. The four main buildings, Mullin, Cornell, Entrepreneurs, and Gold, form an inner circle at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Westwood Plaza, which is the extension of Westwood Boulevard. Connected to the Gold building is the Collins building, which is named for alumnus James A. Collins, who is the chairman emeritus of Sizzler International, Inc. and who funded the John R. Wooden statue in front of Pauley Pavilion.
On October 19, 2017, the new Marion Anderson Hall addition broke ground. The 64,000 square-foot campus addition is estimated to cost $80 million and is one hundred percent donor-funded. Marion Anderson Hall is designed by the same architectural firm that designed the original Anderson complex: Pei Cobb Freed & Partners. Scheduled to open at the end of 2019, the new building features four floors, interactive work spaces, LEED Gold certification, and will serve as the prominent entrance to the Anderson complex.

MBA programs

As of 2011, UCLA Anderson enrolls 70 executive MBA, 90 global MBA, 280 fully employed MBA, and 360 full-time MBA students every year. UCLA Anderson's teaching model combines case study, experiential learning, lecture and team projects. UCLA Anderson's curriculum consists of ten core classes (required courses which cover a broad range of business fundamentals) and twelve (minimum) elective courses. Students are assigned to cohorts, called sections, of 65 students throughout the core curriculum. The cohort system is almost entirely student run, with each cohort electing 17 different leadership positions ranging from President to Ethics chair. In addition, there is the student-led Anderson Student Association (ASA) which deals with all issues of student life including company recruiting, social clubs and academic issues. Students may choose (but are not required) to focus in one or more of the following areas: Accounting Decisions, Operations, and Technology Management Communications, Media, and Entertainment Management Entrepreneurial Studies Finance Global Economics and Management Human Resources and Organizational Behavior Information Systems Marketing Policy Real Estate Anderson also offers an Applied Management Research Program (AMR), consisting of a two-quarter team-based strategic consulting field study project required during the second year of study in lieu of the comprehensive exam for the master's degree. Students complete strategic projects for companies partnering with the school, ultimately presenting recommendations to senior management. The program has been around since the late 1960s and is presently led by Professor Gonzalo Freixes, its Faculty Director. In 2004, two alternatives to the field study were introduced: a Business Creation Option, and a research study option.

Executive education

Since 1954, UCLA Anderson has been providing executive education to both organizations and individuals. According to the school the learning is not confined to just campus. The faculty goes out to train leaders across the globe.
The School also offers a PGPX programme for executives. According to Judy Olian, Dean, UCLA Anderson School of Management, the PGPX program has general management curriculum. UCLA PGPX is a comprehensive programme of one year primarily conducted by senior faculty members from the UCLA Anderson School of Management as well as industry experts. Besides this UCLA Anderson School of Management also offers executive programs on corporate governance, creativity & innovation, women leadership and media.
