Search for the Dean

La Jolla, CA

The University of California San Diego invites nominations and applications for the next Dean of the Rady School of Management. As a new school, unbound from the ties of tradition, the deanship of the Rady School provides an opportunity for a visionary and mission-driven individual to lead the institution into its next chapter and further build on the School’s reputation for delivering a top-tier business education. The Rady School prides itself on a culture built on the five core values of innovation, impact, collaboration, integrity, and risk taking, and the next Dean will embody and champion these values across the School, the broader UC San Diego community and beyond.

The Rady School has quickly achieved significant milestones in its 16-year history. Established in 2003, in close consultation with business leaders in the San Diego community, and matriculating its first full-time MBA class in 2005, the Rady School is the only new business school created at a top-ranked public research university during the past 30 years. Upon gaining AACSB accreditation in 2011, Rady became one of the youngest schools in the nation ever to receive AACSB recognition.

The Rady School is situated in a cutting-edge complex on the main campus of the University of California San Diego. Since its founding in 1960, UC San Diego has become one of the preeminent institutions of higher education in the United States. Enrolling over 38,000 students, UC San Diego is an academic and research powerhouse, generating more than $1 billion in research funding a year and more than $4.5 billion in revenues overall. U.S. News & World Report ranks UC San Diego 12th among public universities. This nexus of research, development, and innovation drives the curriculum of the Rady School and encourages bold collaboration and impact.
