Emory’s Interim Dean Jumps to Georgia Tech

Maryam Alavi will become the new deal of the Scheller College of Business.

Maryam Alavi will become the new deal of the Scheller College of Business.

Maryam Alavi, who has been serving as interim dean of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School for the past nine months, is leaving the school. She will be taking over the deanship at Georgia Tech’s  Scheller College of Business, effective July 1.

Alavi, who joined the Emory faculty in 2000, served as senior associate dean for faculty and research at the school from 2002-2004, and interim dean during the first half of 2005. She has served the school as vice dean since 2005.

Alavi is a two-term board member of the Georgia Technology Authority, appointed by the governor of the State of Georgia. In addition, she has served on the editorial boards of several journals in her area of academic expertise, consults with major business and government organizations, and has taught in graduate and executive education programs at universities in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia.

She holds a Ph.D. degree in management information systems and a Master of Science degree in computer and information systems from Ohio State University, and an undergraduate degree in mathematics and computer science from State University of New York, Buffalo.

Emory had put together a dean search advisory committee last September but still has made no announcement regarding its own dean search. The school hired headhunting firm Heidrick & Struggles to lead the national search for a successor to Larry Benveniste who stepped down as dean last year after eight years in the job.

At Georgia Tech, Alavi will succeed Steve Salbu, who has been dean of the Scheller College since 2006. Salbu is expected to return to the faculty as director of the business ethics program.
