Associate Dean and Executive Director of Development, Cornell College of Business

Based in Ithaca, New York, Cornell University is a leading privately endowed research university and as the federal land-grant institution of New York State, Cornell University has a responsibility – unique within the Ivy League –  to make contributions in fields of knowledge to help improve the quality of life in its state, the nation, and the world.


In July 2016, Cornell University established an integrated College of Business with the transformative excellence, scope and scale to cement the University’s position as a world-class center of teaching and research for business management ad entrepreneurship. Combining the School of Hotel Administration, the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, the Cornell College of Business is more comprehensive and offers more customization than any other top university in the world.


Soumitra Dutta, previously the Anne and Elmer Lindseth Dean of Johnson, is the founding dean of the new College of Business which has over 240 faculty and nearly 2,900 undergraduate, professional, and graduate students.


Overseeing development and alumni affairs efforts at one of the top 3 business schools in the country in terms of size, scope and scale, the incoming Executive Director is an energetic visionary, not daunted by ambitious and exciting ventures. S/He will enhance relationships with Cornell’s top prospects, working with one of the University’s most affluent and passionate donor and alumni bases.


To shape and plan the future of a “start-up” business school is a rare career opportunity.  To do so at an Ivy League university makes this position all that much more extraordinary. There are strong foundations on which to build with a dedicated and loyal alumni base who are giving regularly at each of the College’s three schools.
