From Dr. Jean Morrison, University Provost and Chief Academic Officer.
Kenneth Freeman, Allen Questrom Professor and Dean of the Questrom School of Business, has announced that he plans to step down from his leadership role in the Questrom School of Business in June 2018. Dean Freeman has served with distinction during his nearly eight-year tenure, including presiding over the transformative gift by BU Trustee Allen Questrom (Questrom’64, Hon’15), his wife Kelli (Hon’15), and the Allen and Kelli Questrom Foundation that led to naming the Questrom School of Business in 2015.
Under Dean Freeman’s leadership, the Questrom School of Business has transformed its undergraduate and MBA programs to include emphasis on ethics and global citizenship and has strengthened its research and curricular efforts in three key segments of the global economy: health and life sciences, digital technology, and sustainability and social enterprise. During his time as dean, undergraduate student enrollment in the Questrom School of Business has grown by nearly 30%, and he has overseen significant curricular revisions in response to changing student and employer needs.
