The Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business at Saint Louis University is located at the heart of a vibrant and growing business community and is energized by its Catholic, Jesuit values. With a mission that resonates across and beyond the University, the Chaifetz School is poised to thrive in an evolving marketplace that puts a premium on critical thinking, entrepreneurial approaches and ethical behavior. To secure the success of the enterprise and all members of the community, the Chaifetz School seeks a dean to lead the School into a bright and promising future. 

With multiple centers of distinction, including entrepreneurship, supply chain management, leadership and international business, and situated within a St. Louis business environment that prizes innovation, the Chaifetz School possesses many of the resources and attributes that characterize the successful business school of the future. Add to that students, faculty and staff who are passionate about social justice, diversity and inclusion and the education of the whole person, and you have an environment ripe for leadership that will accelerate the Chaifetz School into a new era of success. The University and the Chaifetz School are developing a common core curriculum, are in the last two years of a major comprehensive fundraising campaign and anticipate reaffirmation of the School’s AACSB accreditation, thus setting the stage for a new dean to have an immediate opportunity to have an impact on the direction of the institution. 

Succeeding in this era of opportunity and change requires a dean who is deeply committed to the University’s and the School’s mission and values. An earned terminal degree is required, and a track record of teaching, research and service meriting an appointment to the Chaifetz School’s tenured faculty is highly preferred. While candidates with meaningful academic experience are preferred, candidates with substantial knowledge of higher education who have demonstrated success in one or more enterprises outside of higher education also will be considered. Of critical need are superior communication and relationship-building skills, outstanding fiscal and budgetary ability and change management experience.
