DEAN, SCHOOL OF BUSINESS THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY Washington, DC The George Washington University (GW), a major research university just blocks from the White House, seeks a visionary and innovative Dean for its School of Business. The new Dean will join the George Washington University School of Business (GWSB) at an exciting time for the University and the School and will be in a metro area that has become a dynamic finance and technology center with one of the highest rates of entrepreneurial start ups in the country. GW regularly attracts visitors whose work shapes the nation and the world. Leaders in government, business, the military and other organizations with worldwide impact have had administrative and faculty roles across the campus, providing an array of opportunities that embody the “Only at GW” experience. The University has benefitted from its compelling location to transform itself into a destination campus for students and faculty from around the world. This strong student demand and philanthropic support that led to the recent completion of a $1 billion capital campaign has allowed GW to build and acquire state-of-the-art facilities such as its new Science and Engineering complex and the Corcoran Museum of Art, now GW’s School of the Arts and Design. Under new presidential leadership, the community eagerly continues its upward trajectory in becoming an outstanding global research and teaching institution. A member of this transformational leadership team, the Dean will bring together a dedicated group of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends who are engaged in outstanding scholarship and practice that aligns with GW’s academic and geographic advantages. The Dean will be a proven, broad-gauged and visionary leader who can leverage recent growth and advancement, support the talents of an outstanding faculty, and optimize a location that is shared by many organizations and institutions that drive global capitalism.
