  1. Ken-

    Got an E-mail from BU today about your position and am very pleased to see you have joined the team. I know its been some time since you strolled Market Street but I am still here. I was BU Bus. Admin. class of ’68 and cant think of a better fit for dean

  2. Sir, I think you are right on the money.

    My most sincere welcome to our school. May your first year here be filled with surprises.

  3. Ken Freeman appears to be eminently qualified to fill the big shoes of Louis Lataif. I have followed BU for 40 years and SMG and the university just keep getting better. Best of luck to Ken!

  4. I worked for Ken for several years, he is by far the best leader I have ever worked with during my 22 year career! BU is more than fortunate to have him lead the Management School and BU will certainly be on my list for my son who enters college next year!

  5. Well done securing Ken Freeman as your new Dean. He will provide the leadeship, integrity and vision to take SMG to the next level and beyond.

    Look out HBS!

  6. Dear Mr. Freeman,
    I have been a Quest Diagnostics employee for 16 years and had the pleasure of seeing you in action as our CEO. Quest employees talk about you very often and we remember you with the fondest memories. We know that when you left Quest, we lost a GREAT leader. How appropriate for you to be in the education business. You always treated the employees with the utmost respect and took special care to mentor them no matter how brief the interaction was. Thank you for all that and how lucky is Boston University.
