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 tradition of liberal arts education in both the U.S. (Loyola University Chicago) and Canada (Concordia and Dalhousie Universities). I am the founding director of the Quinlan Series on the Future of Business Education, Loyola University Chicago, with a mission focused on providing a national forum examining the challenges and opportunities facing business schools and business education in the 21st century. Presently, I hold the position of Executive Director of the Business Leadership Hub, an umbrella organization of multiple centers of excellence at the Quinlan School of Business.  My scholarly work on corporate debt policy, organization risk management, behavior economics, sovereign debt, restructuring, and corporate governance continues to be widely published and has been supported by major external research grants.

As dean, I have elevated the national and global profiles of two business schools in the U.S. (Loyola University Chicago) and Canada (Dalhousie University). I have established premier undergraduate and graduate programs, hired world-class faculty fostering an enabling environment to enhance teaching, research, and community development.  I created and funded research centers and degree programs in partnership with sectors in financial services (Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Montreal, 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 both with universities and the public and private sectors in China, Russia, Cuba, India, and the Middle East.

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. 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 a consultant to universities and for-profit and nonprofit sectors in the U.S., Canada, India, and Iran. Presently, I serve on the advisory board for the Graham School of Management, Saint Xavier University (Chicago, Illinois) and the board of trustees at the American Councils for International Education, Washington, D.C. I received a Ph.D. in Finance from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an MBA from Oklahoma State University, and a Bachelor of Arts from the Iranian Institute of Banking.  Formerly, I held the Herbert S. Lamb Chair in Business Education at Dalhousie University and the Ralph Marotta Chair in Free Enterprise at Loyola University Chicago.
