A BRIEF HISTORY
Ateneo De Manila University
The Ateneo de Manila University traces its roots back to 1859 when, at the request of the
City of Manila endorsed by Governor Norzagaray, the Jesuits took over the Escuela Municipal in
Intramuros, the walled city of Manila. A primary school originally intended for the sons of
Spaniards, it was opened by the Jesuits to native Filipinos as well. In 1865, the Jesuits received
government approval to add a five-year program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. In
keeping with its new academic status, the school was renamed the Ateneo Municipal de Manila

Among the graduates in those early decades was Jose Protacio Rizal, A.B. 1877, who would later
be named the Philippines’ national hero

With the withdrawal of city subsidy in 1901, the Ateneo became a private institution,
dropping the word “Municipal” from its official name. In 1921, the American Jesuits of the
Maryland-New York Province replaced the Spanish Jesuits as teachers and administrators of the
Ateneo

The Intramuros fire of 1932 completely destroyed the Ateneo buildings, forcing the school
to move to a new location on Padre Faura Street, Ermita. During the battle for the liberation of
Manila, the Padre Faura complex of buildings was razed. Temporary structures were quickly built,
but in 1952, the Ateneo moved to its present spacious campus in Loyola Heights, Quezon City

In 1958, the Society of Jesus in the Philippines was raised to the status of a full province

Administration of the Ateneo passed from the New York to the Philippine Province of the Society
of Jesus, and shortly after, the first Filipino Rector/President of the Ateneo was named. Since the
growth of the Ateneo demanded a new status, the school obtained its charter as a university in
1959

Today the Ateneo de Manila is a 155-year old institution comprised of basic, higher, and
professional education units. The units of higher education—the School of Humanities, the John
Gokongwei School of Management, the School of Science and Engineering, and the School of
Social Sciences—are collectively known as the Loyola Schools. The Graduate School of Business,
the Law School, the School of Government, and the School of Medicine and Public Health
comprise the Professional Schools. Like most Philippine universities, the Ateneo has a grade
school and high school noted for high educational standards

PART I General Information
The Loyola Schools, basic education units, and the School of Government are located in
the Loyola Heights campus in Quezon City. The Graduate School of Business and Law School are
based in the Rockwell Center campus in Makati City. Finally, the School of Medicine and Public
Health is based in Pasig City

The Ateneo’s identity is as a Filipino, Catholic, and Jesuit university known for producing
professionals- for-others who excel in their fields and aim to serve the community through their
work. It has recently identified four strategic thrusts for the coming years: mission and identity,
nation-building, sustainable development, and internationalization. The Ateneo, as an academic
community, seeks to fulfill its mission through the exercise of the functions proper to a university,
namely, teaching, research, and service to the community

Ateneo Graduate School of Business
The Graduate School of the Ateneo de Manila was first established in 1948, with Master
of Arts programs in Education and English as its initial offerings. Over time, other fields of study
were introduced, among them Sociology, Economics, Philosophy, and Business Administration

As its offerings grew in size and complexity, the Graduate School eventually found it
necessary to split into two separate entities, and in 1960 the Graduate School of Arts and
Sciences, and the Graduate School of Economics and Business Administration were born

The Graduate School of Economics and Business Administration initially offered only two
part-time evening programs: a Master of Arts in Economics, and a Master in Business
Administration. A full-time MBA was added to its program portfolio in 1964. Two years later,
the Master of Arts in Economics was transferred to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences,
and the school was reorganized into the present-day Ateneo Graduate School of Business, or
AGSB

In 1968, the Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle College, the Ford Foundation, and
Harvard University collaborated to set up the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), with the
agreement that AIM was to concentrate on offering full-time MBA programs, while Ateneo and
La Salle would focus exclusively on part-time programs. As a result of this collaboration, AGSB
seconded many of its faculty to the AIM, and discontinued its full-time MBA program. Now

PART I General Information
focused exclusively on working students, and wishing to move closer to its target clientele, AGSB
moved to a new campus on H.V. de la Costa St., Salcedo Village, Makati, in 1977

The 1990s were a period of rapid growth and revitalization for AGSB under the leadership
of its new Dean, former Secretary of Health, Dr. Alfredo R.A. Bengzon, who took its helm in 1993

The period was characterized by the introduction of many innovative new degree as well as non-
degree programs, and a boom in student enrollment

Under his leadership, the AGSB continued its special focus on health care management
and public health. The Master in Hospital Administration, launched in 1978, was reinvented as
the Master in Health Service Administration in 1998, and eventually, in 2002, renamed the MBA
in Health. Many new non-degree programs were launched, including the award-winning Leaders
for Health program

In 1998, the Ateneo Professional Schools, made up of AGSB and the Ateneo Law School,
moved to its new state-of-the-art campus at the Rockwell Center, in Makati City. The Ateneo-
Regis MBA program was launched that same year, in partnership with Regis University (Denver,
Colorado), a pioneer and leader in adult and workplace-based learning

In 2003, the Commission on Higher Education granted AGSB full autonomy status, in
recognition of its pace-setting innovations in management training and leadership development,
and its continuous commitment to quality education. In 2004, CHED rated AGSB as the number
one business school in the country out of the 199 schools it evaluated that year. In August, 2010,
the school received full accreditation from the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools,
College and Universities, or PAASCU

To make its brand of business education more accessible to a wider public, the AGSB
operates satellite campuses all over the country, including in Santa Rosa, Laguna; Clark Field,
Pampanga; Cebu City, and Iloilo City

Staying true to the Jesuit tradition of magis and excellence in service to others, and
constantly spurred by its passionate desire to provide its students with the best quality education
in the service of the nation, the AGSB today remains ever more committed to its value
proposition that business is not only for profit but also for nation building, and that “our country
is our business”
