Cornell’s Johnson Graduate School of Management Welcomes New Dean, Faculty Members
The Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University this week welcomed five new faculty members for the upcoming academic year, including Soumitra Dutta, who will be the school’s new dean.
Dutta comes to Johnson from INSEAD, where he served as a chaired professor of business and technology and founder and academic director of the school’s eLab. An expert on new technology and its impact on business – especially social media and social networking – he is considered an authority on strategies for using the digital economy to drive growth and innovation.
Johnson this week also welcomes four other new faculty members. Also from INSEAD, Lourdes Casanova joins as senior lecturer of management, with a focus on emerging markets, especially Latin America, and emerging multinationals. And from INSEAD’s Singapore campus, Allan Filipowicz joins as a clinical professor of management and organizations.
Assistant Finance Professor Hyunseob Kim joins Johnson from Duke University, bringing expertise in empirical corporate finance, labor economics and corporate governance. Finally, Drew Pascarella will join the Johnson faculty as a senior lecturer of management. Pascarella comes from Citi, where he was a director in the Technology Investment Banking, advising clients on more than $35 billion of merger-and-acquisition transactions and leading equity, convertible and debt financing transactions totaling more than $9 billion in proceeds. He will lead Johnson’s Investment Banking Immersion program.
