MBA News: Davis-Blake Named New Dean of Ross School of Business

The University of Michigan Ross School of Business announced yesterday that Alison Davis-Blake will replace Robert J. Dolan as the school’s dean starting in mid-August of this year. In 2006, the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota appointed Davis-Blake as its first female dean. At the time, Davis-Blake was the highest-ranking female dean at any U.S. business school. Prior to that, she worked in various capacities at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas. According to Jerry Davis, professor of management and organizations and head of the Ross School’s Dean Search Advisory Committee, Davis-Blake impressed the committee with her “grasp of the broad competitive landscape of business education, its future leads, and the factors that distinguish Ross from the other top schools.”
