University of Michigan-Dearborn College of Business Names New Dean

According to the top-three (in the state) business school’s website, the search for a new dean has come to an end. Yesterday the university’s digital news sources officially named Nagraj Balakrishnan dean of the College of Business, a post he will take at the beginning of February 2013. Dr. Balakrishnan comes to UMD from Clemson University, where he has served for the past 13 years; in addition to teaching, he spent time as a graduate coordinator and a department chair.

Balakrishnan’s background is in operations management, with an interest in supply chain management research mentioned by the article. He has written a textbook, Managerial Decision Modeling with Spreadsheets. Other fruits of his academic career have been published in top business journals. With significant experience in project coordination, his addition to the staff will provide a significant boost to the school’s marketing plan to increase enrollment.
