The Fox School of Business is welcoming 17 new full-time faculty members to seven of nine departments in the 2012-13 academic year as the school continues to increase its research output and respond to the high demand for its courses and programs.
The Fox School’s new faculty members were educated at prestigious universities across the world, and some join the school from tenure-track positions at institutions including the University of Maryland and Purdue University. Many of Fox’s faculty members also join the school with deep industry experience, including positions at Merck, ING Financial Services and Yahoo!
The new faculty members have published research on topics ranging from family-owned firms and social-network analysis to technology entrepreneurship and trust and justice in employment relationships. Included in the new faculty are Department of Finance Chair and Professor Ronald C. Anderson and Seymour Wolfbein Professor of Accounting Lawrence D. Brown.
Since 2008, the Fox School has welcomed nearly 90 new full-time faculty members, bringing its total to 180.
“Our new faculty members include stellar researchers who have remarkable publication records and many articles in top-tier journals,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said. “Combine this with stellar teaching credentials across all of our new faculty, and the Fox School continues to be well-equipped to further enhance our reputation for outstanding research and to effectively teach and mentor tomorrow’s business leaders.”
