Dean, Faculty of Commerce and Administration

Concordia University is seeking to appoint a Dean of the Faculty of Commerce and Administration to begin 1 June 2000.

Concordia's Faculty of Commerce and Administration is one of the most respected and largest business schools in Canada and one of the few schools accredited by the AACSB. The Faculty places strong emphasis on research and scholarship and on pursuing an intellectual climate in which varied inquiry about theory and practice of organizational systems can flourish. Concordia is recognized for its tradition of offering accessible, flexible and relevant commerce and administration programs. The Faculty strives for excellence and innovation in its undergraduate programs in administration and commerce, and in graduate Diplomas in Accountancy, Administration, and Sports Administration; a MBA, an Executive MBA and an Aviation MBA in partnership with IATA; and a MSc and a PhD in Administration. As an urban business school we welcome a bilingual and multicultural constituency and enjoy a high level of ethnic and cultural diversity among our student body (5000 students) and faculty (approximately 250 full-and part-time positions).

We seek a dynamic academic leader, whose entrepreneurial vision will guide the Faculty of Commerce and Administration into a new educational era, build upon our global positioning, our tradition of responsiveness to our region's needs, and our commitment to academic excellence in innovative ways. The Dean will have a strong track record in effective strategic planning in academia. He or she will advance the interests of the Faculty through fostering partnerships and joint ventures with organizations in both the public and private sectors, as well as strengthen collaborations with other institutions of higher learning.
