    Snyder appoints two GSB Deputy Deans

    Edward Snyder, Dean of the University’s Graduate School of Business, has appointed two deputy deans to oversee the school’s M.B.A. programs. Ann McGill, the Sears Roebuck Professor of General Management, Marketing and Behavioral Science in the GSB, has been appointed Deputy Dean for the two full-time M.B.A. programs. Mark Zmijewski, the Leon Carroll Marshall Professor of Accounting in the GSB and former Deputy Dean of the full-time M.B.A. programs, will now serve as Deputy Dean for the five part-time M.B.A. programs.

    John Huizinga, the Walter David “Bud” Fackler Professor of Economics in the GSB, will continue as Deputy Dean for the faculty.

    “I am very pleased that Ann McGill will take on the leadership of the GSB’s campus M.B.A. program and to have John Huizinga and Mark Zmijewski continue as deputy deans,” said Snyder. “I look forward to our work on behalf of Chicago GSB, its people and programs.”

    In her new position, McGill is responsible for admissions, career services and all other areas of the traditional M.B.A. program and the international M.B.A. program.

    Before joining the faculty in 1997, McGill taught at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and at New York University. She also has taught at Stanford University Business School; INSEAD, an international management education institute in France; and the Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration in Thailand. Her research interests include consumer and manager decision making.

    McGill received an M.B.A. and Ph.D. in marketing and behavioral science from the University.

    Zmijewski, who had been Deputy Dean for the full-time M.B.A. programs since 1998, now oversees the school’s evening and weekend M.B.A. programs in addition to the executive M.B.A. programs in Chicago, Barcelona and Singapore. He also is responsible for open enrollment executive education programs and custom corporate education. Zmijewski succeeds Gary Eppen, the Ralph & Dorothy Keller Distinguished Service Professor of Operations Management in the GSB, who retired June 30.

    Zmijewski served as Deputy Dean for the part-time programs from 1996 to 1998 and Associate Dean for Ph.D. Studies from 1994 to 1996. He also was Executive Director of the school’s Center for Research in Security Prices.

    A member of the faculty since 1984, Zmijewski has conducted research on the effects of financial disclosures on capital market participants and security prices.
