“I am very pleased that we are able to recognize these colleagues’ professional accomplishments, leadership and contributions to the Broad College through these professorships and fellowships,” said Sanjay Gupta, the Edythe and Eli L. Broad Dean of the Broad College.

Michigan State University will also honor the endowed professors and faculty at a university-wide investiture ceremony; of the 21 university faculty honorees across MSU’s 21 colleges, four belong to the Broad College.

“By investing in world-class faculty, we are advancing the Broad College mission: educating the next business leaders of the world, who will l solve complex business issues and make an extraordinary impact for a better world,” Gupta said.

The newly appointed faculty positions accompany additional hiring benchmarks at the Broad College, which includes 12 new faculty for the 2017-2018 academic year.
