Dean Edward A. Snyder to Take Sabbatical Leave in 2017-18

Yale School of Management Dean Edward A. Snyder announced his intention to go on sabbatical leave starting August 1, 2017.  Ted will step away from day-to-day and week-to-week management responsibilities in the upcoming academic year. He will continue to work on strategic projects—including ongoing development of the Global Network for Advanced Management and working with a nucleus of Yale supporters to develop resources for program innovation and student scholarships—and will pursue a research agenda. 

Anjani Jain, currently senior associate dean for the MBA program, will serve as acting dean. David Bach, currently senior associate dean for the executive MBA and global programs, has been promoted to deputy dean and will also take on additional responsibilities.  Deputy Dean Edi Pinker will continue to focus on faculty development and building out our research infrastructure.

In an email to the Yale community, President Peter Salovey wrote, “I am pleased that Senior Associate Dean Anjani Jain has agreed to serve as acting dean during this period. As acting dean, he will have overall responsibility for the school and will continue to oversee the full-time MBA program.”

Salovey also wrote, “I am grateful to Dean Snyder, Dean Jain, SOM’s leadership team, and the school’s faculty, students, and staff for their ongoing commitment to advance SOM’s mission and to foster innovative collaborations with our colleagues across campus. I would also like to thank the school’s large number of supporters for their role in making Yale SOM distinctively global among U.S. schools of business and management.”
