“Another example of how the Goizueta Advantage matters is a great faculty,” says Larry Benveniste, Dean of Goizueta Business School. “The way we teach has to constantly change. We need faculty that are state of the art and on the edge of research; these are the faculty we have. When you combine both their research interests and the way they look at the changing world together with their caring nature… It’s a dynamite combination.”
Before joining Goizueta in July 2005, Benveniste was dean of the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. Prior to serving as dean of the Carlson School, Benveniste served as its interim dean, associate dean of faculty and research, and as chair of its finance department. He also held the endowed chair as the U.S. Bancorp Professor in Finance and is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on initial public offerings.
