UVic names new dean of business

Saul Klein said he wants to use UVic's accomplishments to help its international profile.

The priority for the University of Victoria’s newly appointed dean of the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business will be helping build the school’s reputation worldwide.

Saul Klein, currently the school’s Lansdowne Professor of International Business, said he wants to use UVic’s accomplishments to help its international profile.

“I’m really excited about the opportunity,” he said. “I’m stepping into a business school that the current dean (Ali Dastmalchian) has done a phenomenal job of building, and I’m looking forward to taking it to the next stage. We’ve got some really unique opportunities … that position us perfectly for the future.”

Klein’s research has spanned topics such as global strategic alliances and the competitiveness of emerging markets.

His term as dean begins July 1, 2012, ending June 30, 2017.
