McDonough School of Business Dean David Thomas is stepping down after five years at Georgetown University with plans to move back into a research and teaching role as a tenured professor.
From 1990 to 2011, Thomas led the Organizational Behavior Unit at HBS and was the H. Naylor Fitzhugh Professor of Business Administration. He also served as senior associate dean and director of faculty recruitment from 2005 to 2008.
At Georgetown, Thomas is credited with revising the MBA curriculum and launching a Global Business Experience elective for undergraduates and the Global Fellows Program. He also developed an online Master of Science in finance degree and opened centers of study on markets and ethics and global business.
Thomas also led a $30 million fundraising campaign that endowed 13 faculty chairs and helped increase faculty diversity.
