Warwick Names Strategy Prof New Dean

Andy Lockett will become dean of Warwick Business School in August

Andy Lockett will become dean of Warwick Business School in August

The University of Warwick turned to one of its own professors to become the new dean of Warwick Business School. Andy Lockett, who has taught strategy and entrepreneurship at Warwick for nearly six years, will succeed Mark Taylor as dean on Aug. 1.

Only last month, Taylor was named dean of Washington University’s Olin School of Business in St. Louis after a six-year stint as dean of Warwick Business School (see Wash U Goes Outside For A New Business School Dean).

Voted one of the world’s 100 leading professors of entrepreneurship by technology company executives, entrepreneurs, and investors, Lockett has published extensively in leading business and management journals, working in partnership with organisations across the private, public, and third sectors.

PLANS TO CHANNEL ‘THE COLLECTIVE ENDEAVOR OF THE STAFF, STUDENTS & ALUMNI’

In taking on the job, he will lead a school with a full-time MBA program that is ranked 14th for international schools outside the U.S. by Poets&Quants. Warwick, located in Coventry City in Britain, has a London base on the 17th floor at The Shard, the tallest building in Europe.

“It is an incredible honor to be appointed dean at WBS, a world-class business school at the heart of a world-class university,” Lockett said in a statement. “Since joining WBS, I have been privileged to work alongside an amazingly talented group of academics and administrative staff across WBS, the wider university and beyond.

“I see my role as one of channelling the collective endeavour of the staff, students and alumni to put WBS at the forefront of business thinking at a regional, national, and global level. I’m really excited by the prospect of what we can all achieve together.”

WBS HAS ROUGHLY 6,000 STUDENTS BUT A FULL-TIME MBA WITH JUST 55 CANDIDATES

Prior to joining WBS, Lockett worked at the University of Nottingham, where he earned his PhD in management and progressed to the rank of full professor. He had earlier earned his DSc in management from the University of Warwick. After returning to WBS as a professor, Lockett has held a number of management roles, including associate dean and deputy dean. He also led the school’s research agenda.

The school has a full portfolio of programs, including a full-time MBA, with an annual intake of 55 students, a long-distance MBA, which now has 400 enrolled students, and two Executive MBA programs, including one based in London, with 103 combined students. With undergraduates and other masters courses, WBS has roughly 6,000 students

The full-time MBA experience, priced at £35,650, starts in late September and finishes up the following early September with the completion of a management consultancy project. Students then graduate in January or July in the following year. Warwick boasts an average salary increase over pre-MBA pay of 117%, with the latest grads reporting an average starting total compensation of £71,442, or $100,506.

University Vice Chancellor Stuart Croft said the deanship attracted what he called international interest. “I am so delighted that Andy was selected to be the new dean from that very strong field and that he has accepted the role,” Croft said in a statement. “I am looking forward to working with him as he leads WBS towards still greater success and global impact.”
