UKM-Graduate School of Business (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).

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