Global business school INSEAD has appointed a new dean who will be in charge of three campuses in three continents.
Economics professor Ilian Milhov will now head the school, and will be the first Dean in the institution's history to be based in Asia. Prof Milhov was appointed as one of the two Interim Deans after Professor Dipak C. Jain resigned as Dean of INSEAD on March 1 2013.
INSEAD is the only global business school with a multiple campus structure, with campuses in Europe (Fontainebleau, France), Asia (Singapore) and Abu Dhabi.
The Professor of Economics joined INSEAD in 1996, teaching macroeconomics and econometrics in the MBA, EMBA, PhD and many executive education programmes as well as in the Global Leadership Fellows Programme of the World Economic Forum.
Since 2011, he has served as Deputy Dean for Faculty and Research responsible for the recruitment of new faculty, as well as for the development of over 140 professors at INSEAD. He also oversees the PhD programme at INSEAD and the Research and Development committee.
He has been nominated several times as one of the best teachers in the MBA and EMBA programmes and he has won the Outstanding Teacher Award in 2006, 2008 and 2009.
His research is on topics related to monetary policy, fiscal policy and economic growth.
From 2010 to 2012, he served as a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on Fiscal Crises.
Professor Mihov holds a PhD degree from Princeton University and a B.S. in business administration from the Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina where, in 2006, he was recognised as a Distinguished Young Alumnus.
