Name of creator
The Faculty was instituted in 1965. The School of Business offered its first programme of courses in the 1966-1967 school year. The Division of Executive Development was also established at this time to offer up-grading to senior managers in business and government. This was followed in 1968 by the School of Public
Administration. The two schools enjoyed the benefit of Advisory Councils, made up of business, government and academic leaders who were to advise the schools on matters of policy and promote continuing education in the fields of business and government.
In addition to the two schools, the Faculty established a Division of Research in 1968 (it was known as the Bureau of Research 1968-1973) which was aided by a $1,000,000 grant from the Ford Foundation and Canadian businesses for the period, 1969-1973. An Associates Programme was established in the same year, to offer seminars on business trends to businesses that participated in the programme. An equally important aspect of the Programme was to raise funds for research from the business community. The Programme in Arts Management and Administration was initiated in 1968 in cooperation with the Faculty of Fine Arts.
Later additions included the Capital Markets Research Programme and the Centre for Information Processes (later renamed Administrative Behaviour Research Programme) both 1969, which operated under the auspices of the Bureau of Research. By the 1980s the Faculty was offering certificates in Voluntary Sector and Arts Management, operating the York Enterprise Development
Centre (later renamed York Consulting Group), which offered advice and assistance to small entrepreneurs, and cooperating with other faculties and universities in joint business and research programmes.
In 1990 the Faculty offered the following degree programmes: Bachelor of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration, Master of Public Administration, a Programme in Arts and Media Management at the graduate level, a joint MBA/LLB programme with Osgoode Hall Law School, and a joint MBA programme with Laval University. In addition, it offers the Certificate in Voluntary Sector Management, cooperates in the York-University of Toronto Joint Program in Transportation, and houses the Ontario Centre for International Business.
