Earlier this week, Robert M. (“Bob”) Dammon was appointed dean of Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business, reports a recent Tepper press release. The current associate dean of education and professor financial economics will replace former dean Kenneth Dunn.
“We are fortunate to have Bob assume leadership of one of the world’s great business schools,” said Mark S. Kamlet, Tepper’s acting dean since January 1, 2011 when Dunn stepped down. “The analytical approach to solving complex business problems was invented at Carnegie Mellon’s business school and serves as an important framework for business. Our expectation of a leader for the school’s academic and research priorities is extremely high, and Bob’s experience is unmatched. He is an outstanding researcher, exceptional teacher and skillful administrator, and he brings a clear understanding of the complexities and opportunities in management education today.”
Dammon has won numerous teaching awards and has been published in prestigious finance and economic journals. He has been serving on the Tepper faculty for more than 25 years.
Dammon will take his post on May 1, 2011.
