Historical or Biographical Note

In 1928, the School was founded on the idea, new for its time, that business and government might become partners in promoting national prosperity and international development. Beginning with a $1 million endowment from the League of Masonic Clubs, The George Washington University (GW) President Cloyd H. Marvin established what was known as the School of Government, with degree programs that integrated business and politics on the national and international levels.

In the years following World War II, change came rapidly. In 1960, the School was renamed the School of Government, Business, and International Affairs. Then, in 1966, President Lloyd H. Elliott split its faculties into a new School of Government and Business Administration (SGBA) and a School of International Affairs -- which today bears President Elliott's name. The SGBA was renamed the School of Business and Public Management (SBPM) in 1990. In 2004, it became the School of Business.

Throughout its history, GW School of Business has attracted some of the nation's most outstanding leaders from academia, government, and the business world. In 1992, F. David Fowler, a managing partner of KPMG (Klynveld Peat Marwick Goerdeler), became dean of the school. During his tenure, he dedicated himself to educating a generation of effective managers.

Dean Fowler was succeeded in July 1998 by Susan M. Phillips. A former member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Dean Phillips brings to the School her expertise in such specializations as derivatives, bank supervision, and financial management. She also continues to serve as a professor in the School's finance department.
