Tepper School of Business Records

 Collection
Identifier: 1982-0001

Scope and Content Note

Series have been designated for annual reports, administrative records, brochures, Benjamin F. Fairless lectures, books, Cyert papers, publications, research papers, and videos. These records include annual reports, correspondence, pamphlets and brochures, staff and student directories, school publications, research articles, theses, course materials, and VHS and Betacam tapes. Most series cover an extensive period of the School's history to a varying degree of detail. For example, the annual reports or publications series provide a broad overview of the program at any year, whereas the Cyert Papers provide a more in-depth view of the workings of the school throughout the 1960s. The collection presents a reasonably complete representation of the GSIA -- its faculty, students, courses, programs, research, and administration.

Historical Sketch

The Graduate School of Industrial Administration was founded in 1949 with a $5 million endowment grant from William Larimer Mellon. Its purpose was to build on the technical skills of individuals in management positions by providing the communication and analytical decision-making skills the they needed to be successful in business. In this way, the GSIA was the first school in the county to adopt the particular approach of training scientists and engineers for executive positions using interdisciplinary courses in managerial economics, communication, behavioral science, quantitative research methods, and mathematics.

On March 19, 2004 the Graduate School of Industrial Administration was changed to the David A. Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon.
