Former UI Business Dean Daly Profiled

A feature story on George Daly, dean of New York University's Stern School of Business, says that when the school wanted to move from the second rank of business schools to the first, it recruited the slightly built, bespectacled Midwesterner to do the job. The Stern faculty were, however, used to doing things their way. They were unfazed by Daly, who had been recruited from the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA. In his capacious, sunny corner office at Stern, Professor Daly recalls his arrival in 1993: "Here I was in New York. Somebody from Iowa. This does not bring respect or fear to the faculty." When Daly steps down this summer he can reflect on nine years that have swept aside many of the faculty's certainties and seen Stern move up to eighth place in the FT's 2002 international full-time MBA rankings. Its executive MBA course was ranked fourth in the world in the FT's 2001 survey.
