Joe Daniels to serve as acting Keyes Dean of Business Administration at Marquette
Longtime economics professor succeeds Brian Till
MILWAUKEE — Dr. Joe Daniels, professor and former chair of economics in the College of Business Administration at Marquette University, has been named acting Keyes Dean of Business Administration. Daniels succeeds Dr. Brian Till who this past spring announced he would be stepping down and returning to the marketing faculty.
“Over his nearly 30 years at Marquette, Dr. Daniels has demonstrated not only strong, progressive leadership in the College of Business Administration, but also a dedication to the university’s mission, vision and values,” Acting Provost Kimo Ah Yun said. “He is the ideal individual to help the college build on its momentum and advance its vision of becoming a ‘destination business school.’”
“I have called the College of Business Administration home for nearly my entire career, and I’m honored to step in as acting Keyes Dean at this key moment in our future,” Daniels said. “The college is fortunate to have such a dedicated and visionary faculty and staff — together we will continue to dream big and achieve great things.”
In addition to serving as chair of the Economics Department — which serves students in the College of Business Administration and the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences — Daniels is co-director of the Center for Applied Economics. He has also served on the University Financial Planning and Review Committee, the Dean’s Executive Council for the College of Business Administration, and the Dean’s Advisory Council for the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences.
Daniels served as a Visiting Fulbright Chair of Governance and Public Policy at McMaster University, the Farr Distinguished Visiting Professor of International Finance in the Economics Department at Wake Forest University, and as a Visiting Fulbright Research Scholar in the International Relations Program at the University of Toronto. He has functioned as an officially credentialed media expert at G7/G8 economic summits and has been interviewed by a wide range of media outlets including the Washington Post, New York Times, and Financial Times.
There is currently a search underway for the next permanent Keyes Dean of Business Administration.
