Dean of UA's Eller College looks to retool for digital shift in business world
March 14, 2017
When Paulo Goes was named dean of the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management about a year ago, he said a major goal would be to better prepare students for the rapid digital transformation of the business world.
The former head of the UA’s Department of Management Information Systems has gotten off to a fast start in that regard, with near-term plans to launch new programs in cybersecurity and big-data analytics for working professionals.
“We have to help businesses understand what is happening in a time of great change, and at the same time, we can work with them to help our students,” Goes said.
But the dean has gone much further, moving to break down barriers between Eller’s six academic departments, boosting online programs, reaching out to Eller alumni and laying plans for expansion — both in Tucson and Phoenix.
