Eight year itch

Dipak Jain, the long-standing and popular dean of Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, is standing down from his post. The school has announced that Professor Jain is to take a year’s leave of absence, starting in September, before returning to Kellogg’s ranks as a faculty member. Professor Jain joined Kellogg as an assistant professor in 1986 and has been at the school’s helm for eight years, during which time it headed the Economist Intelligence Unit’s ranking of MBA programmes for three consecutive years between 2002 and 2004. Northwestern University said it would shortly be appointing an interim dean while a search for a full-time successor was undertaken.
