The Position:
The Dean will lead the School at a critical time in its development and will help to design and execute a strategy to strengthen its position in the market and ensure its long-term academic and financial success.

The Dean works closely with the Provost, the President, and the rest of the president’s senior administrative team, and serves on the Deans’ Council and the Provost's Academic Council, which helps to advance the University and to identify opportunities for interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial collaboration among the Atkinson Graduate School of Management, the College of Arts & Science (CAS), and the College of Law as well as Tokyo International University and the new partners of the institution.
