CORAL GABLES, Fla. (June 22, 2016) – Anuj Mehrotra, professor of management science and vice dean of the School of Business Administration, has been named interim dean of the school following the departure of Eugene W. Anderson, who stepped down after his five-year term ended this summer.

In making the announcement, UM Executive Vice President and Provost Thomas J. LeBlanc noted Mehrotra’s commitment to excellence and credited him with growing the school’s graduate student enrollment.

“During Anuj’s tenure as vice dean, the school has diversified its portfolio of graduate programs with innovative experiential courses that include international immersion and consulting experiences for participants. These programs have helped to grow graduate student enrollment by 70 percent in the last five years,” LeBlanc said.

“His experience and commitment to excellence will continue to strengthen the school’s top-50 ranking among M.B.A. programs and ensure continuity in addressing the needs of our students and graduates,” LeBlanc added.

Mehrotra will serve as interim dean starting July 1 while UM completes a global search and installs a new dean.

Mehrotra, who joined the UM faculty in 1993, is the Leslie O. Barnes Scholar, professor of management science, and has been vice dean since 2007. He oversees all aspects of M.B.A., Executive M.B.A., and specialized masters programs, including recruitment, admissions, and advising. Previously, he served as the chair of the Department of Management Science.

Mehrotra’s research interests are in large-scale optimization and interdisciplinary applications. His research includes a project with the U.S. Coast Guard to optimally locate air stations to respond to distress calls and a study on determining routing and staffing decisions for distributed call centers. He holds a Ph.D. in Operations Research from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

During his term as interim dean, Mehrotra said he is confident that the school will continue to innovate by anticipating and adapting to the shifting needs of students and the business community and helping to move current initiatives forward while the search for the new dean continues.

“I look forward to working with our world-class faculty, professional staff, alumni, and other supporters to strengthen and build on the status and recognition the school’s degree and non-degree programs have earned locally and internationally,” he said.

The School of Business Administration’s degree and non-degree programs have been recognized in various rankings, including being named among the top U.S. programs for Latin Americans by America Economía and top 50 undergraduate and graduate programs in the U.S. by Bloomberg BusinessWeek and The Economist.

Eugene W. Anderson

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (May 19, 2016)—Eugene W. Anderson, dean of the University of Miami’s School of Business Administration (SBA) for the past five years, has announced that he will step down from his post when his term ends this summer. He will stay on until an interim dean is appointed.

“It has been my privilege to serve as dean and to work together with everyone in the community to advance our position as a leader in global business education and research,” said Anderson, who came to UM in 2011 from the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business, where he served as senior associate dean for academic affairs and the D. Maynard Phelps Professor of Business Administration.

Anderson will continue to serve the University as a faculty member and will retain his post as Schein Family Chair in Business.

“Dean Anderson has led the school through a number of important challenges, facing many difficult decisions while still overseeing its progress on nearly every measure of program and student quality, alumni engagement, funding, and reputation, and providing a strong upward trajectory for the future,” said Executive Vice President and Provost Thomas J. LeBlanc.

Under Anderson’s tenure, the School of Business Administration has globalized its curriculum, increased graduate enrollment, hired 21 new faculty members, improved gender diversity within both the student body and the faculty, and achieved significant growth in revenues and other sources of funds to provide the school with the resources required to reach its goals. The SBA is recognized as one of the schools most engaged with its home university and business community at large.

“The University community can be proud of the foundation he leaves in place for our continued pursuit of excellence in scholarship and education for the 21st century,” said UM President Julio Frenk.

Anderson’s academic research on marketing and business performance has been published extensively in academic marketing journals, including the Journal of Marketing ResearchMarketing ScienceJournal of Service ResearchManagement Science and the Journal of Consumer Research. He has served on the editorial boards of all four premier academic journals in marketing and is a recipient of the Ross School’s Andy Andrews Distinguished Service Award and Victor L. Bernard Faculty Teaching Leadership Award, as well as the American Marketing Association’s FedEx Excellence in Service Research Award.

Anderson received his doctorate degree from the University of Chicago, and his master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, all in business administration.
