Former Kellogg Dean Dipak Jain Named Dean of INSEAD

Leading international business school INSEAD announced this week that it has appointed Dipak C. Jain, Dean Emeritus of Kellogg School of Management, as its next dean, succeeding J. Frank Brown, who will step down in 2011.

With campuses in Singapore, France and Abu Dhabi, INSEAD chose Jain in part to further beef up the school’s  global presence, says  Franz Humer, chairman of INSEAD’s board.  In his new role, Jain will likely look for opportunities to build programs in China and India, as well as maximizing the potential of the Abu Dhabi campus, which caters to executives.

“What attracts me to INSEAD is that it is a true global brand in management education, one with enduring passion and inspired vision. The values that drive INSEAD ”” including a deep respect for the power of diversity; a desire to link theory and practice to address important managerial issues; and an entrepreneurial approach to teaching and research ”” are ideal to meet the opportunities and challenges facing organisations in the coming years,” says Jain.

Jain will be introduced at INSEAD’s Leadership Summit Asia 2010 in Singapore on November 12th, and will assume his duties as dean in March 2011.
