Hugh Courtney will complete his tenure as dean of the D'Amore-McKim School of Business after the 2016-2017 academic year. Hugh was appointed dean in January 2012, dedicating his time at Northeastern to enhancing the business community for both faculty and students through experiential learning opportunities, an entrepreneurial, innovative spirit and improved school rankings.

The announcement, made by James C. Bean, provost and senior vice president, was sent in an email to the university community on Monday.

“During his years as dean, Hugh applied his exper­tise in busi­ness strategy and strategic decision-​​making to develop many new pro­grams and ini­tia­tives at DMSB,” Bean wrote. “Through Hugh's lead­er­ship, the DMSB offers excep­tional under­grad­uate and grad­uate pro­grams and cul­ti­vates a pio­neering entre­pre­neurial ecosystem for stu­dents as they engage in expe­ri­en­tial learning and inter­na­tional programs.”
