New B-School Planned

The University of California, Merced, is planning a standalone school of management.

The University of California, Merced, has embarked on a multiyear planning initiative to create a new interdisciplinary school of management. The standalone school will be called the Ernest & Julio Gallo School of Management after the global wine business that, like the university, is located in California's San Joaquin Valley. It will become UC Merced's first named school.

The school will have a mission that "relates broadly to management, decision making, information, communication, and sustainability, and embraces the complexities of real interactions between people, institutions, technologies, and the natural world," according to Paul Maglio, the director of the Ernest & Julio Gallo School of Management Planning Initiative.
