August 25, 2005 11:04 AM
SF State now has a former IBM and nonprofit executive to head its College of Business this semester.
“It’s an honor to join this team and I’m looking forward to growing the college of business and continuing to provide an exceptional business education,” said newly appointed dean Nancy Hayes, who began her position on August 1.
SF State’s College of Business is the largest in the state of California and among the 20 largest business schools nationwide. It is also among the roughly 25 percent of business schools in the U.S. that are fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. SF State’s
College of Business enrolls approximately 5,000 undergraduate students each year.
This semester, the college will have 11 new professors “from all over the world” which will increase the full time faculty by almost 10 percent and “contribute significantly to many fascinating areas of study,” said Hayes.
“I’m a business person, and my skill is management and leadership,” said Hayes, who most recently worked as the president and CEO of WISE Senior Services, a non-profit organization that provides care to low-income and at-risk elders.
“I am an experienced practitioner of what we are teaching.”
Hayes is looking forward to making positive changes within the college and enabling the faculty to be “the best at education, research and community development.”
“Right now I’m just getting to know everyone and identify opportunities for change, and then we’ll coalesce to improve our overall delivery of education,” said Hayes.
