Our Story

Culverhouse Dean Lee Bidgood recognized a need to expand graduate program opportunities for business students in 1944. He seized the opportunity to found an MBA program that was both ahead of its time and one of the first offerings in the southeast. In 1987, Culverhouse named its graduate division The Manderson Graduate School of Business in recognition of Lewis Manderson’s exemplary record, generosity, and foresight.

The graduate school of business continues to provide Specialized Master’s, MBA, EMBA, and Ph.D. programs for its students.
