Chicago Booth announced today that Sunil Kumar, Fred H. Merrill Professor of Operations, Information and Technology and an expert in operations research at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business, will serve as the new dean of the program. Kumar will take the place of Edward A. Snyder, who served as dean of the program for nine years. Snyder stepped down from his post on June 30, 2010.

Kumar, who was born in India, received his Master of Engineering degree in computer science and automation from the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore. He also possesses a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Mangalore University in Surathkal. After receiving his PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1996, Kumar joined Stanford, where he has served as a faculty member ever since.

Kumar expressed a great deal of enthusiasm for his new post, stating, “I am excited to become dean of Chicago Booth. I share the school’s passion for the pursuit of ideas that hold up under careful scrutiny. I look forward to helping strengthen and enhance Booth’s outstanding research environment and its rigorous, discipline-based approach to business education. I am eager to get to know the faculty, students, alumni, and staff of the school, and to engage with the business community in the city of Chicago.”
