LONDON: The University of Oxford has appointed Indian-origin academic Professor Soumitra Dutta as the new Dean of its Saïd Business School. Dutta, currently professor of management at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University in New York, will take up his new UK post on June 1. “I am delighted to be joining Saïd Business School at Oxford University. My daughter Sara graduated from Oxford and both my wife Lourdes and I spent a fruitful half-year sabbatical at Oxford. We are both looking forward to being part of this diverse, exciting and innovative community,” said Dutta.
The university said Dutta has a distinguished three-decade academic career behind him, including being current chair of the Global Business School Network and 13 years in leadership roles at INSEAD in France. Dutta serves on the boards of listed global corporations, has founded several successful start-ups, co-chaired the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Innovation Ecosystems and created major global technology and innovation indices. He has also acted as a senior adviser to governments on technology and innovation policies. Dutta’s appointment follows the departure of Peter Tufano, who stepped down after 10 years as dean in June 2021. Since then, Sue Dopson has been leading the school as interim dean.
“We are excited to be welcoming Professor Dutta to lead our School community. He brings with him an incredible breadth of global leadership experience,” said Dopson.
