Guydosh Named Dean of School of Business and Economics

Dr. Patricia Higgins announced today that Dr. Ray Guydosh has been named the dean of the college’s School of Business and Economics.

“Ray has now twice served as interim dean of the SBE. In that capacity and as a faculty member and department chair within the school, he has come to know the faculty, staff and the programs very well,” said Higgins, who is the interim provost and vice president of academic affairs. “We felt he was a good choice to lead the school into the future.”

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to continue to work together with the outstanding faculty and staff of the School of Business and Economics to help provide our students with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to succeed in today’s global economy,” Guydosh said.

Guydosh was interim dean of the SBE from January 2004 to June 2005, and again from December 2008 to the present. He has also served as the college’s department chair for the hotel, restaurant and tourism management program; coordinator of the international business program; and chair of the management and international business department. In addition, he has held positions on the faculty of Concordia University (Montreal), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Rochester, N.Y.) and Oakland University (Oakland, Mich.), to name a few.
He is the author of “Cases and Exercises in Personnel Management” and has co-authored two other books and numerous papers, including 21 refereed articles.

Active as a member and chair of many campus and university-wide committees, Guydosh has played a role in the Executive Council, the Deans’ Cabinet and the Academic Council. He was also the campus representative to the State University Senate and co-chaired its Standing Committee on Governance.

Originally from Washington, D.C., Guydosh earned his M.S./M.B.A. and Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business. He also has a master’s in physics from the University of Maryland and bachelor’s degree from the Carnegie Institute of Technology. His teaching specialties include organization and management in the hospitality industry; labor relations; and comparative and multinational management.
