The Business School came into existence on the 1st January 2008 - the latest chapter in the history of business education and research at the University of Adelaide. The creation of the new Business School by merging the School of Commerce and the Adelaide Graduate School of Business represents the continuation of the commitment of the University of Adelaide to ensuring it impacts effectively on the community with which it interacts. In this changing world, the restructure brings a number of advantages to all of the stakeholders in the Business School. It brings both scope and scale to the business programs, resulting in an enhanced focus on integrating research with quality learning and teaching. The Business School now offers a broad range of programs: from undergraduate business degrees to postgraduate specialist degrees and a 5 star ranking MBA.
