An Indiana University professor specializing in information technology has been named the dean of the UW-Madison School of Business.

Anne Massey will succeed Francois Ortalo-Magne, who is departing this summer after six years as dean, to become dean of the London Business School.

Massey has a dual role at Indiana University-Bloomington, as the Dean’s Research Professor of Information Systems at the Kelley School of Business, and as associate vice president in the Office of the Executive Vice President for University Academic Affairs.

She will start her duties as dean of the Wisconsin School of Business on Aug. 7.

“I am truly honored,” Massey said in a statement from the university on Thursday. “I am quickly learning how exceptional the university and the Wisconsin School of Business are, thanks to a combination of its people and principles.”

Massey has a doctorate in decision sciences and engineering systems, a master’s degree of science in industrial engineering and a bachelor’s degree in management, all from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York.

Her research has centered on innovation processes and strategies driven by technology, and the role information technology has on team performance, the university said.

“We are fortunate to have someone with Anne’s experience lead the Wisconsin School of Business as its next dean,” said UW-Madison Provost Sarah Mangelsdorf. “Her passion for innovation and forward-thinking research will inspire students and build upon the school’s success.”

The Wisconsin School of Business was established in 1900 and was one of the first business programs in the country.

The school has a $69 million budget, 80 faculty members, 220 professional staff and 40 university staff.
