Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management

Cornell SC Johnson College of Business

The Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management seeks a visionary and entrepreneurial dean with a collaborative spirit to continue its trajectory of growth while renewing its commitment to business for a better world. The Dyson School is uniquely anchored in the quality of its academic and outreach programs, preeminence of its research, and impact on the challenges facing the world today through its rich history with and connection to agricultural, environmental, and development economics. Upon this distinctive platform, the school is poised to move even higher in its ranking as a global business school with leading applied economics and management research and graduate programs. Reporting to the Dean of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, the next dean of Dyson will have the exciting chance to lead and shape this thriving enterprise, embedded within the SC Johnson College but born of and still connected to Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, as it realizes its ambitious goals and further distinguishes itself as one of the top business schools in the nation.

As New York state’s land-grant institution, Cornell University is charged with advancing the lives and livelihoods of the state’s citizens through teaching, research, and public service. Its mission is rooted in ideals considered revolutionary when the federal Morrill Land Grant Acts were enacted in 1862 and 1890: that a land-grant university education should be open to all qualified students, regardless of class, ethnicity, race, or gender; and must merge practical scientific and technical education with classical studies in history, philosophy, and literature. A vital contributor to Cornell’s status as the flagship land grant university for the state of New York, Dyson translates the expertise and research insights of its faculty into practical applications for New York, the nation, and the world.

Dyson offers a robust and incredibly competitive four-year undergraduate program, joining a top-ranked business program with the applied learning that underscores the Dyson distinction. The School’s graduate programs pair students with internationally renowned faculty in the field of applied economics and management in pursuit of a particular mission: to promote inclusive and sustainable prosperity across the globe. In addition to its undergraduate degree, Dyson offers a Master of Professional Studies (MPS), a research-based Master of Science (MS), and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).
