About

I am a seasoned academic leader with over 35 years of global administrative experience, having served as dean of business and senior scholar at major public and private universities with strong traditions of liberal arts education in both the U.S. (Loyola University Chicago) and Canada (Concordia and Dalhousie Universities). As dean, I have elevated the business schools’ national and global profiles by establishing premier undergraduate and graduate programs, hiring world-class faculty, and fostering a strong teaching and research environment.  

My accomplishments have been positively received by alumni, local communities, and national and international ranking agencies including Business Week, US News & World Report and Beyond Grey Pinstripes Global MBA Survey. I have achieved successful fundraising campaigns, most recently realized by contributions exceeding $55 million, including a naming gift for Loyola University’s Business School, and previously, a $30 million program for building, scholarships, and research centers at Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Management.

As an early adopter of new educational technology platforms, I introduced on-line graduate and executive certificate programs in both the U.S. and Canada. I created research centers and degree programs in partnership with sectors in financial services (Royal Bank of Canada and Bank of Montreal), securities and exchanges (Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Toronto Stock Exchange), pharmaceuticals (Baxter International), and alternative energy (Burnside Eco-Industrial Park, Canada). Globally, I have established academic partnerships, economic development, and professional training programs with both universities and private sectors in China, Russia, Cuba, India, and the Middle East. I have been actively involved with national and international academic accreditation bodies including the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), European Federation of Management Development (EFMD), Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), and American Library Association (ALA).

In 2009, in recognition of my leadership in ranking Loyola’s business ethics program 1st in the nation, Ethisphere Institute, New York, selected me as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics. I have been Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Administrative Science and President of the AACSB East Division. I have been a consultant to universities and private sector corporations in the U.S., Canada, India and the Middle East. Presently, I serve on the advisory board for the Graham School of Management, Saint Xavier University (Chicago, Illinois). I am also a trustee at the American Councils for International Education, Washington, D.C.

 I received my Ph.D. in Finance from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, MBA from Oklahoma State University, and Bachelor of Arts from the Iranian Institute of Banking.  Formerly, I held the Herbert S. Lamb Chair in Business Education at Dalhousie University. I currently hold the Ralph Marotta Chair in Free Enterprise at Quinlan School of Business, Loyola University Chicago.
