Dr. Beena George Named New UST Cameron Dean

Dr. Beena George is the fourth dean of the University of St. Thomas Cameron School of Business effective on May 20. George previously served as the associate dean of the Cameron School and contributed to the school's elite accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

As dean, George said she sees three priorities for the Cameron School of Business.

"We should develop and maintain a strong community of learners where all students are encouraged and supported to achieve their best. We want to create an innovative portfolio of program offerings that supports the school's mission and meets the needs of the community we serve. We will continue our intellectual work to advance ideas that have an impact on practice in a manner that is mindful of business and development challenges," George said. "As we complete activities in support of these priorities, we will see continued success in educating students to be strong leaders making ethical decisions that result in business success and sustainability."  

George teaches courses on business strategy and the use and management of information technology resources in organizations. In her classes, students are encouraged to share with each other their experiences in the business world, connecting in-class learning with real-life events.

Her course on sourcing management was awarded the Innovations in Information Systems Education award by the Association of Information Systems, the premier academic association in the information systems discipline.

The course is also recognized by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals as a bridge program for training for certification as a Certified Outsourcing Professional. With her involvement in the IAOP, George has helped put CSB on the map with the IAOP as an Academic Alliance Partner.

Dr. Dominic Aquila, vice president for Academic Affairs, is delighted that George emerged as the successful candidate in the University's national search for a dean.

"The entire University celebrates Dr. George's appointment, as evidenced by the thunderous applause she received when Dr. Ivany announced it at the April 30th Town Hall Meeting," Aquila said. "Like many on campus, I have worked closely with Dr. George on a range of projects. She does all things well and inspires those who work with her by her work ethic, sharp intellect, joyful spirit and affability. She is exactly the right person to take the Cameron School of Business to a new level of excellence."

Between her work at UST and spending time with her husband and three children - two who are UST graduates and the third who is a senior at UST - George volunteers at St. Laurence Catholic Church in Sugar Land.

George, a native of south India and a graduate of the Indian Institute of Management in Kolkata, India, has been teaching at UST since 2003. She received her doctorate in Management Information Systems from the business school at the University of Houston.
