Clark Atlanta University
Clark Atlanta University (CAU) is seeking a Dean for the School of Business Administration. Reporting to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Dean of the School of Business Administration will play a visionary and leadership role in transforming the School to seize today’s opportunity to address 21st century challenges. The new Dean will assume office no later than summer 2018.
A consolidation of two institutions, CAU has been a national engine of higher education and learning for more than 150 years. Clark College, founded in 1869 as the nation’s first private, liberal arts institution to award baccalaureate degrees to African Americans, and Atlanta University, founded in 1865 as the nation’s first African American graduate institution, were consolidated in 1988 to form Clark Atlanta University. With its nearly 4,000 students, CAU is the largest of the four autonomous institutions (CAU, Morehouse College, Spelman College, and Morehouse School of Medicine) in the Atlanta University Center Consortium (AUCC). Founded more than 70 years ago, CAU’s School of Business Administration has provided a quality program of business management education for young men and women. It has produced the nation’s largest number of African American MBAs and its undergraduate program is one of the top 10 producers of African American business professionals in the nation. The School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.
