The College of Commerce was renamed the College of Business in 1959. In 1979 it came under the administration of the School of Management, where it remained until it was dissolved in 1988. Between 1959 and 1979, the college was administered by the following deans and acting deans: Weldon J. Taylor, Bryce B. Orton, and Merrill J. Bateman.
