Dr. Jun Zhao to Serve as Dean of College of Business

Congratulations to Dr. Jun Zhao, who will begin serving in her new role as Dean of the College of Business after serving as interim dean since November 2016.

Provost Deborah Bordelon, the university’s chief academic officer, describes Dean Zhao’s leadership style as “quiet yet powerful” and credits Dean Zhao as “instrumental” in GSU’s recent AACSB accreditation. Dr. Bordelon says, “I am confident that Dean Zhao will continue to provide the leadership to move the College of Business forward as it reaches out to new markets, develops new programs and seeks out new research and grant opportunities.”

Dean Zhao says that she is honored to serve the university in her new role. “GSU’s College of Business has highly talented faculty and dedicated staff who are committed to providing top quality education to our students while actively engaging in research and professional services. I look forward to working with faculty, staff, students, and the business community to build the business school of choice in Chicago’s Southland and beyond.”

Before serving as Interim Dean of the College of Business, Dr. Zhao was Chair of the Division of Management, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship, where she helped steer COB toward its newly earned and prestigious AACSB accreditation. She has created study abroad opportunities for students in China, Poland, and India.
