A New Dean at HBS
|Jay O. Light|
|Harvard Business School|
Jay O. Light, Dwight P. Robinson Jr. professor of business administration, became acting dean of Harvard Business School on August 1. A member of the faculty since 1970 and most recently senior associate dean for planning and development, Light fills in during the search for a permanent successor to Kim B. Clark. Light’s research has focused on institutional asset management and on entrepreneurial management of technology enterprises. Likely as he is to maintain the school’s priorities during his interim leadership, Light might nevertheless want to choose a new confection to replace the miniature Clark bars in the large bowl outside the dean’s office.
