Dipak Jain Resigns Deanship At INSEAD

Dipak Jain has resigned his deanship at INSEAD

After taking a medical leave last year due to being “tired and unfocused,” INSEAD Dean Dipak Jain has apparently resigned his job effective March 1. He will have served exactly two years as dean of INSEAD.

The highly popular former dean of Northwestern’s Kellogg School, Jain has led one of Europe’s best business schools since March of 2011. An exceptionally gifted professor who was widely liked and admired by students and faculty alike, Jain had been dean of Kellogg from 2001 to 2009.

Though Jain is leaving the deanship, he will remain at INSEAD as a marketing professor, according to The Financial Times, which reported the resignation.

According to the newspaper, INSEAD’s board on Jan. 21 named two of the school’s three deputy deans, Ilian Mihov and Peter Zemsky, as interim deans until a permanent appointment is made.

Dipak Jain, dean of INSEAD for little more than a year, has been placed on medical leave to undergo tests after he complained of exhaustion in recent weeks.

Jain, 55, went on medical leave in May of last year until August, when “a further assessment will be made by the INSEAD Board and Deputy Deans,” according to a memo sent to INSEAD faculty at the time. Peter Zemsky deputy dean of degree programs and curriculum, had then been named acting dean of the school.

The Wall Street Journal had earlier reported that a school spokesperson said Jain, a vegetarian with no prior health problems, had been tired and unfocused for the past few weeks. “A battery of tests conducted in Paris in early May proved inconclusive, and Mr. Jain has returned to his former hometown, Chicago, for further examination,” according to the newspaper.
