Chicago, Illinois

Illinois Institute of Technology (Illinois Tech) seeks an innovative, entrepreneurial, and ambitious leader to serve as the next dean of the Stuart School of Business (Stuart). This is an exciting opportunity to lead a business school experiencing exponential growth thanks to the development of innovative new programs, international partnerships, and collaborations across a university that was recently named a 2024 Best College in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal.

With an ongoing $1 billion capital campaign and in the final year of a bold strategic plan, Illinois Tech is set up for dramatic growth and development as it continues to pursue its founding mission to provide access to higher education for students from different backgrounds and to make a difference in the world through technology-oriented education.

Reporting to the provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, the dean will support the vision of the school and continue to craft its identity and broaden its impact. They will be an eager fundraiser and enthusiastically tell the story of Stuart to current and potential donors, while also supporting a talented and diverse faculty in their research, teaching, and outreach.
