A Message From The Dean

The start of 2018-2019 academic year marks my first as interim dean and sixth as a member of the Fox School of Business. Since 2012, I’ve been a proud member of this community, most recently as the chairman of the Department of Finance.

I’m pleased to welcome 34 new faculty from a variety of disciplines to our Fox community, and it is my hope they come to share in my pride. Each of our school’s nine academic departments are welcoming new colleagues who bring strong backgrounds and commitment to research, teaching, and service. They add to our already prestigious list of more than 220+ full-time faculty.

This year is a benchmark moment in our school’s history — the Fox School is commemorating its 100th anniversary in 2018. For a century, our school has led a rich tradition of high-quality education and exceptional student outcomes. Continuing this tradition would not be possible without the school’s talented and dedicated faculty.

From digital innovation in product management to network data analysis and machine learning, the specialties — as well as knowledge and experiences — of our new faculty will ensure the Fox School continues to provide high-quality education and outcomes for the next century.
