20 Years as the Argyros School

» The 20th Anniversary of the Naming of the George L. Argyros School of Business and Economics

Celebrating Our 20th Anniversary 

20 Years as Argyros SchoolThe Chapman University School of Business was founded in 1974, but in 1999 we officially became the George L. Argyros School of Business and Economics thanks to a transformational gift made by the Honorable George L. Argyros ’59. His generosity set in motion a new era of growth and achievement in business education.

We are proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary with a slate of distinguished guest speakers, each representing a facet of our honoree’s remarkable life and career.
