In 1967, the merger of Case Institute of Technologyand Western Reserve University created Case Western ReserveUniversity, and the Western Reserve University School of Businessabsorbed Case’s Division of Organizational Sciences to become theSchool of Management in 1970. Just six years later, the School ofManagement launched its full-time MBA.In 1980, the School of Management was renamed in honor of AlbertJ. Weatherhead III, a Cleveland businessman and industrialist whorepresented the fourth generation of his family to carry on theWeatherhead name and values, including cultural and educationalleadership. By 1999, the Weatherhead School of Management haddeveloped a strong identity, growing out of its space in Enterprise Halland requiring new construction. Funded by the philanthropist andentrepreneur whose name it bears, the Peter B. Lewis building, designedby renowned contemporary architect Frank Gehry and completed in 2002,was the answer. Located across the street from the George S. DivelyBuilding, which houses Weatherhead Executive Education programs,the Lewis Building, featuring Gehry’s unmistakable sculptural profileand gleaming stainless steel roof, both sets the school apart from itssurroundings and, quite literally, reflects the prestigious neighborhood ofthe school. Gehry redefined the way a business school should look, justas Weatherhead redefines the way management education should takeplace.AccreditationThe programs of the Weatherhead School of Management have been fullyaccredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business(AACSB) International since 1958.
