Jorge Haddock was appointed dean of Mason’s School of Management, effective July 1, 2009. He comes to Mason from the University of Richmond, where he had been dean of the Robins School of Business since 2005.
“I am excited about the prospect of working with Dean Haddock and the experience and vigor he will bring to this position,” says Mason Provost Peter Stearns. “I think we are in for an exciting next phase in the School of Management.”
Haddock’s teaching interests include operations research, production planning, and information technology at the undergraduate and graduate levels. His primary research involves the design and implementation of effective information technology, production, and service systems, as well as their effect on corporate culture. He has written or cowritten more than 70 publications.
“The School of Management has placed itself in an enviable position for further short- and long-term success. There are tangible opportunities for enhancing the quality of all programs, while capitalizing on growth and revenue endeavors,” says Haddock. “I am honored and thrilled to be the next dean of the school and thankful to all who have helped the school reach this level of accomplishment.” Haddock succeeds Richard Klimoski, who had served as dean since 2002.
Haddock earned a BS from the University of Puerto Rico, an MS from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a PhD from Purdue University.
