William C. (Curt) Hunter, dean and distinguished professor of finance in the School of Business, has been named dean of the University of Iowa’s Henry B. Tippie College of Business.
“During Curt Hunter’s tenure at the University, the School of Business continued to rise in national prominence,” says Provost Peter J. Nicholls.
“The opening of the SS&C Technologies Financial Accelerator in Hartford, coupled with the edge Lab partnership with the General Electric Company in Stamford, has given UConn national recognition for its experiential learning initiatives in finance, information technology, and other areas.
"Dean Hunter has also strengthened and expanded the school’s partnerships with top
the region and nation. We are sorry to lose a leader of his
caliber and wish him all the best
in his new assignment in Iowa.”
Hunter will leave UConn in May. He came to UConn in 2003 from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, where he served as senior vice president and director of research from 1995.
The University of Iowa’s Henry B. Tippie College of Business offers undergraduate and graduate programs that consistently place it among the top 30 public business schools in the nation.
