The visionary concept of a business college at the University of California was first proposed by Arthur Rodgers, a Berkeley graduate and well-traveled business professional. In his 1883 commencement address, he envisioned:


Arthur Rogers First Envisioned a Business School at Berkeley

"The Occident and the Orient,

The Asia Business Center builds on Rodgers' initial vision by joining the East and West to create a sum greater than each part.
