Belmont University has named Dr. Joe Alexander the associate dean and senior professor of performance excellence of the Jack C. Massey Graduate School of Business, effective July 1, 2007. Alexander comes to Belmont from the University of Northern Colorado where he has served as dean of the Monfort College of Business since 2002.
Under Alexander, UNC’s business school won the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2004, the only business school to earn that honor. The Baldrige Award is given annually to businesses and educational and health care organizations judged to be outstanding in seven key areas, including leadership and strategic planning.
Alexander will provide leadership for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Accountancy (MACC) programs at the Massey School. He will develop and implement an aggressive enrollment growth strategy and manage the marketing and recruitment to support new program development. Alexander will hold the tenured rank of full professor and teach graduate-level courses in performance excellence.
“Dr. Joe Alexander is a national leader in the field of performance excellence and academic management,” Pat Raines, dean of the College of Business Administration at Belmont, said. “His passion for improving organizational efficiency will enhance the graduate programs that we offer at Belmont and add value to the service we provide to the Nashville business community. The prospect of Joe joining our community has everyone associated with The Massey Graduate School excited about the future.”
