CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The University of Cincinnati College of Business has named its new dean.
David M. Szymanski will take over Aug. 1, 2010 pending approval from the UC Board of Trustees.
"The appointment of Dr. Szymanski culminates an aggressive and successful national search that began six months ago," says UC Sr. Vice President and Provost Anthony J. Perzigian. "Both the search committee and the college's Business Advisory Council saw in Dr. Szymanski the ideal blend of academic strengths and leadership qualities necessary to advance the mission and standing of the College of Business."
"U.S. News & World Report" ranked UC's College of Business full-time MBA program 71st and part-time MBA program 83rd. Bloomberg "BusinessWeek" ranked UC's undergraduate business programs among the top 100 in the country for 2009.
Szymanski has held senior administrative and faculty positions at Texas A&M University since 1987. He was the J.C. Penney Chair of Retailing Studies and served as director of the Center for Retailing Studies at Texas A&M for six years. He also serves on the board of directors for OfficeMax Incorporated.
Szymanski will be introduced to faculty, staff, students and alumni at a reception on June 22, 2010, following the UC Board of Trustees meeting.
