The Glasgow School of Management was established in 1950 as a joint venture of the Royal Technical College and the Glasgow and West of Scotland Commercial College (later the Scottish College of Commerce). Joint courses in management had been offered from 1947, and links between the two institutions dated back to 1915 when the Royal College was first represented on the Board of Governors of the Commercial College. The Royal College Department of Industrial Administration was closely involved in running the management courses. The School of Management was administered by a Joint Committee of representatives of both colleges. This Joint Committee was abolished after the merger of the colleges to form the University of Strathclyde.
