Goodbye to Wharton’s Dean Harker
The Financial Times published an article that provides insight into the impact that Dean Harker had on Wharton, his philosophy on business school education (work hard, play less) and his well publicized stand against the business school rankings. The article lists several of his accomplishments as Dean – rasing close to $500 million for the school, bringing on 20 additional members of the faculty, opening up the San Francsico campus “Wharton West”. For those of you interested in Wharton, it’s an interesting read and helps to demonstrate how Dean Harker is leaving Wharton a stronger institution than it was when he arrived. Dean designate Tom Robertson takes office on August 1.
