BU School of Management Appoints Deborah Marlino Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Student Programs
Marlino will provide strategic leadership for all graduate and undergraduate academic programs. She will also manage and oversee graduate admissions, student life, and student services.
Marlino joins Boston University from Simmons College, where she serves as associate dean for faculty and curriculum and professor at Simmons College School of Management. Before joining the Simmons faculty in 1990, Marlino was an assistant professor at MIT’s Sloan School of Management. She has also taught specialized courses at Boston University, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, and various executive education programs in the greater Boston area.
Marlino has nearly 30 years of experience in both the practice of marketing and marketing education. She specializes in marketing strategy, market research, consumer behavior, and global marketing. Most recently, her research has focused on the attitudes of girls and women toward business careers and on the media’s representation of women in business. This research has garnered media attention in more than 200 newspapers, magazines, and radio broadcasts nationwide.
Marlino’s appointment comes at a very important time in SMG’s history. The School of Management recently embarked on a new comprehensive strategy focused on impactful research, exceptional teaching, and the three rapidly growing sectors of the world economy: Digital Technology; Health & Life Sciences; and Social Enterprise & Sustainability. The School is optimizing business education for a fast-changing world by providing insight into these sectors and a practical foundation in the functional management disciplines, business ethics, social responsibility, and global perspective as it approaches its centennial year beginning in September 2013.
