The Bachelor of Management degree programme, USM, was introduced in the 1984/1985 Academic Session, as one of the degree programmes offered by the School of Social Sciences. In December 1989, the management section under the School of Social Sciences became an academic school on its own, known as the School of Management. Since then the school has enjoyed a huge success. As part of an Accelerated Programme for Excellence (APEX) agenda, the School of Management’s business and management studies has been placed in the 101-150 rank bracket of the 2017 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Ranking by Subject in the same vein. USM itself is ranked 63 by 2018 QS World University Rankings by Faculty for Social Sciences and Management. This automatically acknowledges School of Management in the eye of the world.
