Indian-origin Stanford University Professor Sunil Kumar has been named dean of the prestigious Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. Kumar’s appointment comes within a month of IIT alumnus Nitin Nohria taking over as dean of the prestigious Harvard Business School.

Kumar, an expert in operations research, is currently the Stanford business school’s senior associate dean for academic affairs.

He will take over as dean at Chicago Booth from January 1, for a five-year term, succeeding Edward A. Snyder.

"I am excited to become dean of Chicago Booth," Kumar said. "I look forward to helping strengthen and enhance Booth’s outstanding research environment."
