The University of South Carolina Upstate seeks a flexible, highly collaborative leader to serve as the next Dean of the George D. Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics (JCBE). This is an outstanding opportunity for a talented, experienced administrator to lead distinctive AACSB-accredited programs and strengthen further the University's relationships with thriving corporations and small businesses in Spartanburg and across the Upstate region of South Carolina. Many of the key components of a successful business school are already in place: a remarkable building in downtown Spartanburg, continued accreditation by AACSB, faculty with excellent credentials and research, and regional infrastructure to support the many businesses in the community. What USC Upstate seeks is a dynamic leader who both embraces the academic world of business education and genuinely enjoys building and nurturing relationships with corporate and organization leaders in community. This is an opportunity to be part of true societal impact in a growing, thriving region. The new Dean is expected to begin by July 1, 2023.

At USC Upstate, the Dean will oversee academic programs, centers, and personnel in the JCBE and report to Dr. Pamela Steinke , Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. As a senior leader, the Dean will also serve on the Cabinet under the leadership of Chancellor Dr. Bennie Harris and engage across campus in interdisciplinary programs and initiatives. Importantly, the Dean will also connect with leaders of business and organizations in promoting the work of the JCBE and developing partnerships that build on strengths in the University and business community.
