Australian Graduate School of Management

The AGSM no longer exists as a school, and is now a brand of the The Australian School of Business applied to its management teaching and management research centers. The AGSM MBA has been the highest ranked MBA program in Australia. [AGSM (2005).

In 1977, the University of New South Wales (UNSW), with federal government resources, established the AGSM as Australia's first national school of postgraduate management studies. In January 1999, the AGSM and the Graduate School of Business of the University of Sydney (USYD) merged under the AGSM brand. In November 2005, the universities demerged their business schools and the AGSM reverted to wholly UNSW ownership. [AGSM (2005). [http://www2.agsm.edu.au/agsm/web.nsf/Content/News-MediaReleases-AGSMToReturnToSoleOwnershipByUNSW AGSM to return to sole ownership by UNSW] .]

One year later, UNSW merged the AGSM with the UNSW Faculty of Commerce and Economics, creating The Australian School of Business (for a brief period, the new faculty was called the Faculty of Business). UNSW's Vice Chancellor, Fred Hilmer, appointed Alec Cameron to manage the integration of the AGSM with the UNSW Faculty of Commerce and Economics. [AGSM (2007). [http://www2.fce.unsw.edu.au/nps/servlet/portalservice?GI_ID=System.LoggedOutInheritableArea&maxWnd=_AboutUs_DeansBiography] .] Following the integration, the Vice Chancellor inducted Alec Cameron as the dean of the new school.

In mid-2007, the faculties physically combined, and moved into UNSW's newly renovated Heffron Building, which UNSW renamed the Australian School of Business Building. In mid-November 2007, the University closed the AGSM's thirty-one-year-old Frank Lowy Library, and moved its collections and some of its staff to the main university library. At present, the "old" AGSM building accommodates AGSM teaching facilities, AGSM administration, and Faculty of Medicine research units.

Today, the Australian School of Business offers a full-time AGSM MBA program in Sydney, a part-time AGSM EMBA program throughout Australia, a part-time AGSM EMBA in Hong Kong, an AGSM Graduate Certificate in Change Management, an AGSM Masters of Law and Management, and a range of executive education programs. Further, the Faculty of Business applies the AGSM brand to selective research centres. For example, Professor Robert Wood heads the Accelerated Learning Laboratory, which the Australian Research Council (ARC) awarded $2.1 million in 2006 Linkage Grants. [AGSM (2006).
