The spring semester will see a few changes in leadership at Mays Business School. David Blackwell, head of the Department of Finance and Republic Bank/James W. Aston Professor of Finance, will be stepping down as department head and taking on the roll of associate dean for graduate programs.
Taking over for Blackwell as interim department head will be Ekkehart Boehmer, associate professor and Nichols Professor of Finance. Boehmer will serve in an interim capacity until a permanent candidate is appointed.
These changes will be effective January 2008.
