Search for the next Keyes Dean of Business Administration extended

After an eight-month search process, including several candidate interviews, the search committee to identify the next permanent James H. Keyes Dean of Business Administration will extend its search, Provost Kimo Ah Yun announced today. Acting Dean Tim Hanley will continue to lead the college through the extended search process, and Dr. Kevin Rich, chair and associate professor of accounting in the College of Business Administration will continue to chair the search committee.

“With highly ranked, sought-after programs, and a new home, O’Brien Hall, Marquette Business is at a momentous point in its history. Identifying the next Keyes Dean is a critically important step for the college as it continues its momentum into the next decade and beyond,” Provost Ah Yun said. “I would like to thank the search committee for its dedication to finding the right candidate to lead Marquette Business, and I extend a special thanks to Acting Dean Tim Hanley for his ongoing leadership.”

Provost Ah Yun added that the search committee aims to identify a slate of candidates in early fall 2023.

Marquette Business provides a business education with purpose — one that gives students the knowledge to succeed, the principles to lead and the confidence to connect what’s good for business with what’s good for people.

The college is ranked in the top 20% among U.S. News and World Report’s Best Undergraduate Business Schools and is home to four top 25 specialty programs in accounting, finance, real estate and supply chain management. The Graduate School of Management is home to a top 20 ranked executive MBA program, a top 100 part-time MBA program and top 25 ranked graduate specialty programs in finance and supply chain management.

In January 2023, Marquette Business will welcome the first students into Dr. E. J. and Margaret O’Brien Hall, the college’s new 100,000 square-foot home on the corner of 16th Street and Wisconsin Avenue. The largest fully donor-funded construction project in university history, O’Brien Hall will serve as a major catalyst to grow the pipeline of future Catholic, Jesuit-educated business leaders for years to come.
