The deal "is very indicative of what's already happening in the food space within CPG," said Prashant Malaviya, the senior associate dean of MBA programs in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. "You see this across the board with Kellogg and Mondelēz as the industry is betting on broader portfolios that cut past traditional categories."
“Employers will more rapidly adopt digital screening processes to broaden their reach, and hire the very best candidates,” says Paul Almeida, dean of Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business in Washington DC. “Business schools will offer more electives around data, analytics, and artificial intelligence — all using new [online] platforms [which are] increasingly becoming standard practice,” he adds.
Paul Almeida, dean and William R. Berkley Chair at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, says that like individual vows to lose weight, quit smoking, or eat well, business schools’ vows “are about being better in the future.” The beginning of a new year is a time “to reflect a bit on our past and on the opportunities of the future,” he adds. And he’s come up with three ways schools will have to change.
“I’d be concerned about the potential for over-regulation,” said Charles Skuba, a senior associate dean at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. “Brussels more so than the U.S. has a penchant for red tape proliferation, and the more regulation the gig-driven companies face, the less competitive they will become."
The Hershey deal "is very indicative of what's already happening in the food space within CPG," said Prashant Malaviya, an associate dean of MBA programs at Georgetown University. "You see this across the board with Kellogg Co. and Mondelez International Inc. as the industry is betting on broader portfolios that cut past traditional categories."
An op-ed by Paul Almeida, dean and William R Berkley chair: “When Pope Francis assumed the papacy in 2013, there were cheers from many around the world. Francis was the first pope from the Americas and the first Jesuit. While his appointment focused new attention on the Jesuit Order, the Society of Jesus has been around since 1540, when it was founded by St Ignatius Loyola.
When nearly half of Greater Washington’s business schools saw their deans turn over in the past year, it was hard not to notice. But is it time to worry? Not necessarily, experts say. Such leadership change can be good for universities, particularly if they’re facing declining enrollment, which has been a challenge nationally.
On August 1, the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business will welcome a new dean, Paul Almeida. Almeida is the current Deputy Dean of Executive Education and Innovation, as well as a Professor of Strategy and International Studies. When he takes his place as dean, Almeida will also become the William R. Berkley Chair.
Paul Almeida, a longtime member of the Georgetown University academic community, has been named the next dean and William R. Berkley chair of the McDonough School of Business. Almeida, scheduled to start Aug. 1, has worked at Georgetown for more than two decades, most recently as deputy dean for executive education and innovation, and before that, as senior associate dean for executive programs. He also serves as a professor of strategy of strategy and international business.
Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business tapped an insider for its open deanship. The school announced today (June 1) that Paul Almeida, deputy dean of executive education and innovation — a title made up specifically for Almeida — will take over the school’s top leadership job. When Almeida officially assumes his post on August 1, it will conclude a year-long gap after former Dean David Thomas stepped down last July.
Paul Almeida doesn’t care too much about “titles and stuff.” What does he care about? “I like building new opportunities,” Georgetown McDonough’s new deputy dean of executive education and innovation tells Poets&Quants. “I like searching in new spaces.”
