UKM-GSB upholds its tradition in providing quality and excellent Business learning experience and prioritizing research as a legacy inherited from the Business fraternity in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).


Business sustainability catalyst in borderless education.


Rejuvenating academia in instilling impactful and sustainable education, research and industrial ties.

UKM-GSB evolved from the Faculty of Economics & Administration in 1972 as a Business Management Unit. This unit was later transformed into the Faculty of Business Management under the dynamic leadership of its first Dean, Professor Dato’ Dr. Nik Rashid Nik Ismail (May 1979-September 1980, July 1981-May 1982). In 2004, the Faculty of Business Management merged with the Faculty of Economics, and by 1st April 2004, the Graduate School of Business was created under the management of the Faculty of Economics & Business (FEB).

On 1st October 2007, UKM-Graduate School of Business was established as a separate entity from FEB and was conferred an autonomy status with the new name of UKM-Graduate School of Business (UKM-GSB). The first semester intake of new batch of students occurred in July 2008 under direct management of UKM-GSB. The new Ph.D (by thesis) program with specializations in Accounting, Marketing, Management  (Organizational Behavior / Human Resources Management, Strategy, Operations) and Finance, was introduced along with the new improved DBA (with coursework & dissertation).

UKM-GSB aims to stimulate intellectual growth, develop critical skills and competency in the post-graduate students for greater engagement in progressively shaping and changing the societies.
