UVA Darden school reappoints new dean
The University of Virginia Darden School of Business has reappointed its dean to a second five-year-term.
Scott Beardsley became dean at the Charlottesville-based school on Aug. 1, 2015. The reappointment extends his term to 2025.
In a news release, the school said Beardsley’s first term has been marked by significant advances. Darden has climbed in graduate business school rankings during his tenure, securing a top 10 positions in two MBA-program rankings: Bloomberg Businessweek (No. 9) and The Economist (No. 9).
Additionally, the school will have hired 31 faculty members by the end of Beardsley’s first term. His accomplishments also include helping launch a section of Darden’s Executive MBA in 2016. Darden also opened a facility in Arlington last year, which serves as the primary location of its expanded Executive MBA program, as well as the Master of Science in business analytics program.
