Texas A&M University is pleased to announce Dr. Eli Jones ’82 as the new dean of Mays Business School. Dr. Jones’ return to College Station is a homecoming for the three-time alumnus. He earned his bachelor’s in journalism at Texas A&M and his MBA and Ph.D. in marketing at Mays, and he has deep roots and strong family ties in the Lone Star State. He served most recently as dean of the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas.

Dr. Jones is joined at Mays this fall by 10 new faculty members coming with doctorates from other top institutions, including University of Michigan, Duke, INSEAD, Stanford, the University of Chicago and Wharton. This talented group of accomplished scholars will pursue diverse research interests—ranging from sales leadership and behavioral economics to corporate governance and information asymmetry.

This influx of new insights, perspectives and experiences will enhance Mays’ globally renowned faculty and build upon the long tradition of excellence at Texas A&M.
