The University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business has appointed Scott Beardsley as its next dean, effective August 1. Beardsley succeeds Robert F. Bruner, who is completing his 10th year as dean, and last year announced his plans to return to the faculty at the end of his second term.

Currently a senior partner of McKinsey & Company, Beardsley leads learning and leadership development for all McKinsey professionals. He has been based for most of his 26-year career in its Brussels, Belgium office.

Beardsley received a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering magna cum laude from Tufts University and an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management, where he received highest honors as a Henry S. Dupont III Scholar and served as editor and marketing manager of the MIT Sloan Management Review. He is a candidate at the University of Pennsylvania for an executive doctorate in higher education management, expected in May.

“The Darden School of Business is moving from strength to strength,” says U.Va. President Teresa A. Sullivan. “Scott Beardsley’s knowledge and vast experience will help guide the school to greater heights of excellence. We are very fortunate that Scott will build upon the strong legacy of Bob Bruner, who, along with his team, achieved recognition for Darden as the world’s best graduate business education experience.”

A frequent author, speaker and media commentator, Beardsley has presented at the World Economic Forum at Davos and teaches as a faculty member in McKinsey’s programs. Previously, he lectured in the MBA program of the Belgian business school Institut d’Administration et de Gestion. He chairs the board of directors of the American Chamber of Commerce in Belgium.

In a press statement, Beardsley expressed great enthusiasm for this new role, saying, “I believe deeply in Darden’s values and its clear and focused mission to improve the world by developing responsible leaders and advancing knowledge. I am very excited to be part of the University of Virginia family, and its Jeffersonian commitment to excellence.”
