Emory University’s Goizueta Business School added associate deans for its nationally-ranked Full-Time and Evening MBA programs, it was announced today.

Brian Mitchell, a veteran of the pharmaceutical marketing and consulting industry, will lead a Full-Time MBA program that ranks in the top 25 nationally by various publications including Bloomberg Businessweek, The Economist, U.S. News and Financial Times.

Mitchell will be responsible for all aspects of the Full-Time MBA experience. He will also lead the MBA program office and manage the academic, international and leadership components of the program.

Harold Lewis, a former executive at The Weather Channel, joins an Evening MBA program that has ranked as high as No. 2 in the United States and currently ranks 11th in the nation according to Bloomberg Businessweek. Similar to Mitchell’s role in the Full-Time program, Lewis will be responsible for various aspects of academics and leadership, including the overall student experience.

“Our MBA programs offer leadership training and a wide variety of electives to tailor to most any type of student or interest. The diverse business backgrounds – and success – Brian and Harold have shown in their careers will help us further enrich the student experience. Their addition also marks another step in our strategy for success, adding a full-time role as head of the program offices. ”
