Dean Search, School of Business
Welcome to Montclair State University. We offer a comprehensive undergraduate curriculum with a global focus, a broad spectrum of graduate programs through the doctoral level, and an unusually diverse faculty and student body. The strength of our programs, combined with our 250-acre, architecturally inspiring suburban campus just 14 miles west of New York City, has attracted exceptional faculty from around the world to our six colleges and schools.
Accredited by AACSB, and poised to occupy its new $66 million, 143,000 ft2 building set to open in fall 2015, the School of Business is comprised of five academic departments: Accounting, Law and Taxation; Economics and Finance; Information and Operations Management; Management; and Marketing. These departments offer majors in all business disciplines and thirteen specialized concentrations covering numerous topics, including: hospitality management; retailing; sports, events and tourism marketing; and international business. At the graduate level, in addition to the MBA, the School offers an MS in Accounting and a Post-MBA certificate in Accounting. The School’s 79 full-time faculty members deliver top-quality instruction to its approximately 2,660 students. The Princeton Review recently added the School to the Review’s list of best business schools, further confirmation of the quality and trajectory of its programs. The School benefits from the support of its Advisory Board, composed of outstanding leaders from the business community. The School’s current operating budget is $17.6 million. In addition to 29 high-tech classrooms, the new building will also house a Trading Floor, Financial Resources Center and the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship. This search offers a rare opportunity to spearhead growth of a vibrant and contemporary business school in one of the most desirable locations in the country and to enhance its visibility worldwide.
The Dean, who is appointed by the President and reports to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, serves as the chief academic officer and administrative officer of the School of Business.
