History & heritage

In London, on 24 November 1967, eight UK-based business school graduates (who had studied at the top Ivy League universities in the US) decided to launch the Business Graduates Association. Its mission was to improve the quality and number of graduate business schools, encourage employers to recruit business graduates, and promote the importance of business education.
