Bentley University invites inquiries, nominations, and applications for the position of Dean of Business.

Bentley University is one of the nation's leading business schools, dedicated to graduating future business leaders who possess exceptional professional skills, along with a broad global perspective and high ethical standards. From humble beginnings as a local accounting school, Bentley has risen to become one of the country's leading top professional schools offering undergraduate, masters and doctoral degrees. U.S. News & World Report now ranks Bentley No. 2 on its list of best undergraduate programs among regional universities in the North. The Princeton Review places Bentley among the top three colleges in career placement, while Money Magazine lists it as the twelfth best institutions for business majors. Located on a classic New England campus just minutes from Boston, Bentley is a dynamic community of scholars, professionals, and creative thinkers with a history of innovative educational practices. Blending business, technology and the liberal arts, Bentley provides students with relevant, practical, and transferable skills. Its motto is “Paratus,” Latin for “Prepared.”

Bentley University seeks the next Dean of Business who will be charged with enhancing the University's national brand, reputation and endowment. The Dean will work collectively across the institution with faculty, staff, and other University leaders to strengthen the breadth and depth of business programs offered by the school. The Dean will provide intellectual and creative leadership and will partner with department chairs and program directors in academic program planning and review. In addition, the Dean will promote the mission and values of the University to both internal and external audiences.

As Bentley University embarks on a new era of leadership, under the direction of incoming President Alison Davis-Blake, and Provost Lynne Rosansky, the Dean of Business will work alongside the new Dean of Arts & Sciences to shape the academic direction and future of the institution. Working in partnership with faculty, Bentley's next Dean of Business will champion Bentley's nationally recognized programs, rooted in a legacy of accounting and finance, while thinking innovatively about undergraduate and graduate business programs to meet the needs of students as business education evolves. The Dean of Business will partner with university administration and faculty during the process of undergraduate curriculum revision to set the vision to take the institution forward, while valuing and maintaining Bentley's history and culture. The Dean is expected to fundraise for the institution; partnering with university advancement, the Dean will engage regionally, nationally and internationally to attract financial support from Bentley alumni, private philanthropic, corporate, and extramural funding sources. The ideal candidate will have an earned doctorate in an appropriate field and be eligible for appointment at the rank of Professor, or equivalent experience appropriate to the Dean's role and responsibilities.

Nominations and expressions of interest will be received until a list of candidates is put forward for final consideration.
