India-born Sunil Kumar named Booth School (University of Chicago’s B School) Dean

Professor Sunil Kumar of the Graduate School of Business (GSB) of Stanford University will take charge as the Dean of the prestigious Booth School of the University of Chicago on January 1, 2011 as per Businessweek article of Feb 28, 2010.

Dr Sunil Kumar teaches Operations Management and Technology at Stanford. He has a Bachelor’s Degree from NIT Surathkal, a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from Indian Institute of Science and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign.

In the backdrop of Dr Subra Suresh taking charge as the Dean of MIT’s Engineering School two years back and Dr Nitin Nohria named as the Dean of Harvard Business School recently, this news is indeed very welcome.
