Goes named dean of Arizona's Eller College of Management

Paulo Goes, head of the Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) at the University of Arizona, was recently named dean of the school's Eller College of Management.

Goes, the Salter Distinguished Professor in Management and Technology, has led the MIS department to national prominence. U.S. News & World Report ranks it the No. 2 public undergraduate and No. 1 public graduate program in the country. Goes also spearheaded more than $85 million in grant funding.

"I am absolutely thrilled that Paulo Goes will be the next leader of the Eller College of Management," Ann Weaver Hart, president of the University of Arizona, said. "Dr. Goes is a wonderful scholar and his leadership of the Department of Management Information Systems has helped build it into an international powerhouse. As a leader and as a faculty member, he is deeply attuned to the needs of business, and his unique perspective will see the Eller College achieve new heights of excellence and impact."

Goes succeeds Jeff Schatzerg, Lou Myers Professor of Accounting. Schatzberg acted as interim dean for a year after the previous dean, Len Jessup, departed the college to accept the presidency of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
