Cal Poly Pomona, also known as CPP or California State Polytechnic University, is nestled in the beautiful San Gabriel Valley less than 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

Additional information about the institution can be found at https://www.cpp.edu.
The College of Business Administration (CBA), with over 5,000 students, is one of the largest business schools both within the CSU system and the nation. Accredited by AACSB current standards at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, the CBA emphasizes Cal Poly Pomona's learn-by-doing approach to better prepare students to 'hit the ground running' upon graduation. This is accomplished through distinct career tracks, specialized coursework and internships that connect students to industry leaders.
The CBA consists of six departments: Accounting; Computer Information Systems; Finance, Real Estate and Law; International Business and Marketing; Management and Human Resources; and Technology and Operations Management. The College has five graduate programs: MBA, MS Accountancy, MS Information Security, MS Business Analytics and MS Digital Supply Chain Management. In addition, the CBA is home to the Center for Consultative Selling, the Center for Customer Insights and Digital Marketing, the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Global Leadership Initiative, the Mitchell C. Hill Center for Digital Innovation, the NASA-CPP Business Program, the Real Estate Research Council, Singelyn Center for Innovative Analytics, and the California Center for Cyber Risk. These centers provide students with additional hands-on learning opportunities, while serving as research hubs for faculty and industry.
The Dean reports to the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, serves as a member of the Provost's Council and works closely with University Advancement and others across campus to advance the goals and priorities of the college and university. The Dean is expected to serve as a role model who supports diversity, inclusion, and transparency in decision making; and who promotes innovative approaches to teaching and learning and possesses a passion for reducing equity gaps and student success. The successful candidate will be a collaborative leader who acts with integrity and possesses the ability to communicate with diverse constituents and fosters collegiality and clarity in the decision-making process.
Required qualifications include an earned doctorate or appropriate terminal degree from an accredited institution or professional equivalency in one or more fields related to the disciplines in the College of Business; and a record of university teaching, scholarly and creative activity that satisfies eligibility of appointment to the rank of tenured full professor in an academic program in the College.
