The University of Southern Indiana has named Sudesh Mujumdar dean of the Romain College of Business. Mujumdar has served as dean of the College of Business Administration at Savannah State University in Savannah, Georgia, since September 2019.
Mujumdar succeeds Cathy Carey, who served in the position from July 2019 to October 2021, and Brian McGuire, who served as interim dean beginning in November 2021.
His new role at USI begins July 25.
“Leading change has been a primary responsibility for Dr. Mujumdar in his role as Dean,” said USI Provost Mohammed Khayum. “His recent accomplishments demonstrate his ability to recognize opportunities for synergy and integration in the strategic positioning of a college of business. I expect Dr. Mujumdar’s expertise and leadership will serve to strengthen the brand of the Romain College of Business and enhance USI’s capacity to deliver exceptional educational experiences.”
This is a return to Evansville for Mujumdar who previously chaired the Economics and Marketing Department in USI’s Romain College of Business.
