Art Hill to lead MBA Programs, Connie Wanberg Undergraduate Program

The Carlson School of Management has two new leaders. Professor Art Hill, the John & Nancy Lindahl Professor for Excellence in Business Education, assumed the role of Associate Dean of the school's MBA Programs today while Professor Connie Wanberg, the Industrial Relations Faculty Excellence Chair in the Department of Human Resources and Industrial Relations, became Associate Dean of its Undergraduate Program.

Hill replaces Professor Ed Joyce who concluded five years of service in the key leadership role on May 31 and returned to the faculty. Wanberg follows Professor Bob Ruekert who has begun a well-deserved sabbatical following 10 years of service to the Undergraduate Program.

Since 1992, Hill has served as professor in the Carlson School's Department of Operations and Management Sciences where he has delivered consistently strong instruction in the core of both the Full-Time and Executive MBA programs. He earned a BA in Mathematics from Indiana University, an MS in Industrial Administration and a PhD in Management from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University.

Hill is a Fellow of the American Production Inventory Control Society and has been a visiting professor at Indiana University, IMD International (Lausanne, Switzerland), Wits Business School (Johannesburg, South Africa), and the National University of Singapore. He founded the Carlson Consulting Enterprise; has authored over 70 research articles on topics related to manufacturing management, service management, distribution, and retail management; and has consulted for a number of leading firms in both the United States and Europe.

Wanberg first joined the Carlson School in 1996 as a professor in the Department of Human Resources and Industrial Relations (HRIR). She earned a BS in Psychology from Moorhead State University and both a MS and PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Iowa State University. Connie served as chair of the HRIR department from 2006 to 2009. She has published 28 articles in refereed journals as well as numerous book chapters, and has served as an editorial board member for Personnel Psychology, Journal of Applied Psychology, and Human Performance.

Wanberg has presented at numerous conferences throughout the world and has served as a guest instructor at Universite Jean Moulin in Lyon, France and the Fundacíon Ortega y Gasset in Toledo, Spain. She has extensive consulting and research experience and is a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
