Emory University Provost Claire Sterk has announced that Erika Hayes James, Ph.D., has been appointed dean of the university’s Goizueta Business School.

James will assume her new role on July 15. She comes to Emory from Darden School of Business, where she served most recently as senior associate dean for executive education.

“Erika James has all of the qualities that we want for a leader at Goizueta,” Sterk says. “She brings a background of impressive scholarship and strong skills in academic administration, and she will work collaboratively with faculty, students, staff, alumni and supporters to take the school to the next level—all the while honoring the principled leadership of Mr. Goizueta’s legacy.”

Emory’s business school was founded in 1919 and was named in honor former Coca-Cola chairman and CEO Roberto C. Goizueta in 1994.

“I believe the Goizueta Business School is a world-renowned school that is on the verge of greatness,” James says, adding, “I want to be a part of helping the school reach that greatness.”

In Atlanta, Goizueta is positioned well for corporate partnerships, entrepreneurial activities and other collaborations with industry. James hopes to deepen the connections between Goizueta and Atlanta’s business community, nonprofit organizations and other universities.

“I see a real opportunity to align business thought leadership in Atlanta and, in the tradition of the academy, to bring research to bear on challenges,” she says.

James also sees opportunities to bring Goizueta’s business acumen together with Emory’s health care expertise to address the enormous national challenges facing health care delivery systems.

“I am sure our father would consider Erika James to be an inspired choice, given their shared interest in innovative teaching and learning, and developing business leaders who are committed to excellence and integrity,” says Olga Goizueta Rawls, chair and CEO of The Goizueta Foundation. “We are anticipating even greater successes for the Goizueta Business School and its graduates under her leadership.”
