UC Riverside’s business school has a new name: The School of Business Administration. “We’re calling it SoBA for short,” said Dean David Stewart, who made the announcement today.

The A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management will still be housed within the larger school, and all the same graduate programs will be offered including the new Executive MBA and Ph.D.

And while the school has always advised and taught undergraduates who major in business administration, SoBA will now also confer the degrees.

Previously those degrees carried the name of the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.

The undergraduate business program began in 1984 and is now the largest such program in the UC system. Dean Stewart expressed appreciation to all in the University and southern California community who continue to support SoBA and are committed to making it Inland Southern California’s Flagship Business School.

It was 1970 when UC Riverside established the Graduate School of Administration. In 1994, the

school was named for A. Gary Anderson, the founder of Director’s Mortgage.

“We are very grateful to the Anderson family, and we will continue to have the Anderson name on our graduate programs,” Stewart said.

The School of Business Administration offers a bachelor of science, an MBA, an Executive MBA and a Ph.D.
