The University of Chicago Booth School of Business announced Monday Kurt Ahlm has been named associate dean of student recruitment and admissions for the full-time MBA program, effective immediately. Previously, Ahlm was senior director of admissions at Chicago Booth.
Stacey Kole, deputy dean for the full-time MBA program, says the transition is a natural one, given Ahlm has worked in Chicago Booth admissions for the past nine years with responsibilities in almost every aspect of the admissions process.
“I am delighted to take on these greater responsibilities and continue to help prospective students join our diverse and vibrant community,” says Ahlm. “In the months ahead we intend to carry the Booth message to an even larger group of MBA hopefuls across the U.S. and worldwide.”
Meanwhile, the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University recently announced that Michele Rogers will oversee full-time admissions on an interim basis effective April 29. She will be stepping in for Beth Flye,who moves on to the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School as director of admissions for MBA@UNC , its new online MBA program.
“In the coming months, we will oversee a robust, international search for Beth’s replacement,” says Sally Blount, dean of the Kellogg School. “We are grateful for Beth’s dedicated service and pleased that Michele, a seasoned admissions expert and Kellogg veteran, has agreed to fill this role in the interim.”
The Kellogg School expects to name Flye’s replacement in early fall 2011.
