Leadership

The David Eccles School of Business is led by Dean Taylor Randall, who accepted the position after serving as the school’s George S. Eccles Faculty Fellow in the Accounting Department. During his decade of teaching, Randall won multiple awards, including the MBA and Executive MBA Teaching Awards. He is also the recipient of the Wharton Teaching Award from the University of Pennsylvania.

A third-generation top-level administrator at the David Eccles School of Business, Randall completed his undergraduate study with honors in accounting at the University of Utah, and went on to earn an MBA and PhD in operations and information management from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. Randall has served as a director for the University Venture Fund since 2003, during which time the UVF has become the largest independent student-run venture in the country, at over $18.3 million.

Writes Dean Randall:

This is an incredibly exciting time at the David Eccles School of Business. The first phase of our new Spencer Fox Eccles Business Building opened in 2012, the second phase opened in fall of 2013, and it is already helping our students and faculty reach new academic heights every day. The building gives us a world-class facility to serve our community for years to come.  

These brick & mortar changes are reflective of a broader evolution within the David Eccles School of Business. We are constantly working to grow our existing programs and create dynamic new opportunities to help our students achieve their dreams. Significant investments in academics show our commitment to attracting experienced, respected faculty, as well as top-notch students. And we are always working to strengthen our relationships with both major corporations and promising start-ups, many of them started by the entrepreneurial-minded students that fill the halls of the David Eccles School of Business. Our program offerings are expanding, too, offering more education choices to meet the changing demands of today’s world.

The David Eccles School of Business offers an unmatched education that pays big dividends to our undergraduate and graduate students. I encourage you to consider us for the next step on your academic and career path.

Sincerely,
Taylor
