    Snyder to serve second term as GSB Dean

    By Allan Friedman
    Graduate School of Business

    Edward Snyder has been appointed to a second term as Dean of the Graduate School of Business beginning July 1, 2006. He has served as Dean since July 1, 2001.

    Snyder, the George Pratt Shultz Professor of Economics in the GSB, focuses his research on industrial organizations, antitrust economics, law and economics, and financial institutions.

    He teaches a course for M.B.A. students on the economic analysis of major policy issues with Gary Becker, University Professor in Economics and Sociology and the GSB, and Kevin Murphy, the George J. Stigler Distinguished Service Professor of Economics in the GSB.

    Snyder is co-editor of the Journal of Law & Economics and senior scholar at the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics at the University. He also is a member of the advisory board for the energy and industrial group Accenture Inc., and chairman of the academic council for Huron Consulting Group.

    In appointing Snyder to a second term, President Randel said, “This is a good moment to acknowledge and celebrate Ted’s accomplishments in his first four years as Dean.

    “Building on the foundations laid by his predecessors, he has worked successfully with faculty and students to promote the school’s research and education missions and has moved the GSB into new and better quarters.”

    Before his appointment as Dean in 2001, Snyder was dean of the University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business Administration. Earlier in his career he was senior associate dean at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.

    Snyder received a B.A. in economics and government in 1975 from Colby College, an M.A. in Public Policy in 1978 and a Ph.D. in Economics in 1984, both from Chicago.
