Miami University business school names new dean

Miami University has named Marc Rubin the next dean of its Farmer School of Business.

Rubin, a professor of accountancy, has served as interim dean of the school since last summer and will be given a two-year appointment to the position pending approval from the university’s board of trustees in February.

“Marc’s priorities are clear,” provost Phyllis Callahan said in a statement. “He will work collaboratively with faculty, students, alumni and other stakeholders, enhancing the Farmer School’s transformation through programs such as the First-Year Integrated Core curriculum. He will promote interdisciplinary experiential programs such as the Center for Analytics & Data Science and the Center for Business Leadership, and nurture relationships with partners on and off campus.”
