Search committee appointed for Weatherhead School of Management dean

A search advisory committee has been appointed to help name the next dean of the Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management. Like the committees recently named in the searches for deans of the Case School of Engineering and College of Arts and Sciences, the Weatherhead search committee will focus on internal candidates.

The committee is primarily comprised of Weatherhead faculty, along with representation from other schools and departments within the university, students, and alumni.

Since its inception, the Weatherhead School of Management has received international acclaim for developing bold ideas that redefine the way management education is taught. The teaching approach and philosophy has earned the school a place in the top 10 percent of the world's business schools for decades.

Leadership, administration, national/international profile, a commitment to diversity and fundraising and alumni activities are just a few of the criteria the search committee will take into consideration when recommending the new dean.

  • Diana Bilimoria, Associate Professor, Organizational Behavior
