May 9, 2013

TORONTO, ON – An econ­o­mist and expe­ri­enced aca­d­e­m­ic admin­is­tra­tor has been appoint­ed as the Inter­im Dean of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toronto’s Rot­man School of Man­age­ment.

Prof. Peter Pauly will serve as the Inter­im Dean start­ing on July 1, 2013 for a one-year term or until a new Dean is named. In his cur­rent role as Vice-Dean, Aca­d­e­m­ic, he has helped lead the Rot­man School through its ambi­tious expan­sion, which includ­ed the open­ing of a land­mark build­ing expan­sion last year. The announce­ment was made by Cheryl Mis­ak, Vice-Pres­i­dent and Provost, of the Uni­ver­si­ty ear­li­er today.

Prof. Pauly’s aca­d­e­m­ic research inter­ests are in the areas of econo­met­rics, macro­eco­nom­ics and inter­na­tion­al eco­nom­ics. He is a lead­ing schol­ar in the field of applied econo­met­rics and macro­eco­nom­ic mod­el­ing. His recent work has dealt with trade and exchange rate issues, and with the the­o­ret­i­cal foun­da­tions of mod­el-based fore­cast­ing tech­niques. He has been the author of sev­er­al books and more than sev­en­ty arti­cles in these areas. He has been a pol­i­cy advi­sor to nation­al gov­ern­ments and cen­tral banks around the world and serves as a con­sul­tant to many nation­al and inter­na­tion­al agen­cies. Since 1981, Pro­fes­sor Pauly has also served as the Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of Project LINK, an inter­na­tion­al eco­nom­ic research con­sor­tium head­quar­tered at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to and at the Unit­ed Nations in New York. Pro­fes­sor Pauly holds degrees from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ham­burg (B.A. 1971, Ph.D. 1976), as well as an hon­orary degree from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Pre­to­ria.

Cur­rent Dean Roger Mar­tin announced his plans to step down from the posi­tion late last year after lead­ing the school since 1998.

The Rot­man School of Man­age­ment at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to is redesign­ing busi­ness edu­ca­tion for the 21st cen­tu­ry with a cur­ricu­lum based on Inte­gra­tive Think­ing. Locat­ed in the world’s most diverse city, the Rot­man School fos­ters a new way to think that enables the design of cre­ative busi­ness solu­tions. The School is cur­rent­ly rais­ing $200 mil­lion to ensure Cana­da has the world-class busi­ness school it deserves. For more infor­ma­tion, vis­it
