Michelson to concentrate on Executive MBA program

Dr. Stuart Michelson has stepped down as the Dean of the Stetson University School of Business Administration, effective June 2012. This move will allow him to focus on the Executive MBA Program and his passion for Finance instruction.

Dr. Stuart Michelson is leaving his post as dean to focus more energy on directing the Executive MBA program and teaching finance students.

“I am grateful to Dean Michelson for stepping quickly into this important leadership position in fall 2009,” said Dr. Beth Paul, Stetson’s provost and vice president for academic affairs, “as the School of Business Administration was completing a major transformation of the undergraduate curriculum, and facing a comprehensive self-study as required by the rigorous AACSB reaccreditation process. As a result, the School of Business Administration is in the second year of implementing a new curriculum, and has achieved full reaccreditation by AACSB!”

“We are enthusiastic about the recent developments in the Executive MBA Program, thanks to our strong alumni network, active student base, enthusiastic faculty and our Advisory Council, which acts as a steering committee,” said Wendy Lowe, the Stetson Executive MBA program coordinator. “Our vision for the future is extremely optimistic with full support of Stetson University’s president and provost.”

Michelson will serve as George and Sarah Roland Professor of Finance and Director of the Executive MBA program exclusively, effective with the summer term.

“Please join me in thanking Dr. Michelson for his service as Dean of the School of Business Administration,” added Dr. Paul, “and for his deep professional commitment to business education that compels him to return to the classroom.”
