New Business Dean Begins

Monica Adya, a noted business education innovator and a scholar in the area of IT workforce issues, began her tenure as dean of the Rutgers School of Business–Camden on March 30. “I am honored to be given this opportunity to lead the school and build on its strong foundation of teaching, scholarship, and civic engagement,” said Adya, who previously served as chair of the management department at Marquette University’s business school.

Adya, who was named to the dean’s position in January, has earned many honors, including Marquette University’s Teaching Excellence Award, the Instructional Innovation Award from the Decision Sciences Institute, and a special recognition award from the American Council on Education.

Her scholarship consistently appears in peer-reviewed journals, such as Decision Support Systems, Information Technology & People, and Human Resource Management, as well as in books such as Global Women in Computing (Cambridge University Press) and the Encyclopedia of Gender and Information Technology (IGI Global). She serves as associate editor of the Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education and the Journal of Forecasting.

Adya earned her Ph.D. in management from Case Western Reserve University in 1997, her master’s degree in computer systems management from Creighton University in 1991, and her bachelor’s degree from Shri Ram College of Commerce in India in 1989.
