Among U.S. business schools, the Graduate School of Management (GSM) at the University of California, Los Angeles, was one of the pioneers in the information systems field. In this paper, I chronicle IS’s rise at GSM from its early years (1950s and 1960s) through its formative (1970s) and leadership years (1980s) and identify factors contributing to this rise and success.
