The A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management is located at the University of California, Riverside. The origin of AGSM can be traced back to 1970 when UC Riverside established the Graduate School of Administration. In 1993, The A. Gary Anderson Foundation gave a $5 million to the school, the largest gift to UC Riverside at the time, and it was named after the founder of Director's Mortgage.

Donald Dye, the school's dean from 1999 to 2003, spent heavily to bolster the school by almost doubling the number of faculty and increasing enrollment. He set the path for the school to earn AACSB accreditation and to eventually build the $20 million Heckmann International Center for Entrepreneurial Management in Palm Desert. The center was initially funded by a $6 million gift from Richard J. Heckman, a local entrepreneur, and was the start of what became the UCR Palm Desert Graduate Center.cite web | last= Pierceall | first= Kimberly | title= UCR business school's new dean off to running start | url= http://www.pe.com/business/local/stories/PE_Biz_D_bizdean30.7d7fa2.html | date= 2007-09-29 | publisher= The Press Enterprise | accessdate= 2007-09-30] Spending was curbed after Chancellor Orbach left in 2002 and Dye resigned to return to being a professor. Faculty were fired and programs were suspended as the University shifted focus towards attaining a medical school. After Dean Rajiv Banker resigned in 2005, AGSM went through three interim deans before the University in 2007 chose David Stewart, former chair of marketing and deputy dean for the USC Marshall School of Business. Stewart has said he intends to add new programs distinguishing UCR in areas related to growth and supply-chain economics.cite web | last= Pierceall | first= Kimberly | title= UCR business school's new dean off to running start | url= http://www.pe.com/business/local/stories/PE_Biz_D_bizdean30.7d7fa2.html | date= 2007-09-29 | publisher= The Press Enterprise | accessdate= 2007-09-30] [cite web | last= Pierceall | first= Kimberly | title= Business school gets leader | url= http://www.pe.com/business/local/stories/PE_Biz_D_bizdean02.2839ec9.html | date= 2007-06-01 | publisher= The Press Enterprise | accessdate= 2007-09-30]

In 2007, the same foundation that in 1993 gave the school 5 million and its name promised a $3.1 million gift.

The school's annual budget is $7.5 million. Graduate enrollment this year is 127 students.

Today the school offers MBA programs in Riverside and Palm Desert, and an interdisciplinary undergraduate major in Business Administration on the Riverside campus.

AGSM is the home of the UCR Sloan Center for Internet Retailing and eLab, an online laboratory for consumer behavior research. In November 2007 AGSM was named among the top 25 graduate programs in entrepreneurship among 900 universities by Entrepreneur Magazine and the Princeton Review.
