Quaglieri Picked To Head CM

Provost Paul Fonteyn this week appointed interim Dean Philip Quaglieri as the permanent dean of the College of Management after a six-month nationwide search, which drew candidates from Michigan and New York.

According to a March university-wide memo from the provost’s office, Quaglieri is also an associate professor at the college. “His PhD is in human resources management/applied psychology, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey,” read the memo. “His research has dealt with labor relations in business and management issues in higher education.”

The other candidates were Lawrence Abeln, who served as dean of the School of Business at San Francisco’s Golden Gate University, and Niranjan Pati, dean and professor of operations management at the School of Business at Indiana University’s Kokomo campus.

AIMing For Awards

At its 89th annual meeting April 30, the Associated Industries of Massachusetts gave praise and a Global Leadership Award to UMass Boston’s China Program. One of the oldest trade associations in Massachusetts, AIM recognized the China Program for its support of student exchanges and providing government leaders with an opportunity to learn Western management styles and techniques.

John Cicciarelli, assistant to the chancellor for economic development, said it was a “great award” as well as an “opportunity to build on this center that has a great deal of potential.”
