Subject : AGSB Dean
I am pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees approved the appointment of Jowett Cecilio “Jet” F Magsaysay, MBA PhD as Dean of the Graduate School of Business from 15 November 2020 to 31 May 2023.
Dr Magsaysay is a strategy and organizational development expert and president of Strategic Directions Inc. He has been with the University since 1995 as a Program Director at the AGSB Center for Continuing Education (CCE), for which he developed and directed its flagship Leadership and Management Development Program, and, since 2017, a lecturer at the Loyola Schools. Formerly the Editor-in-Chief of World Executive’s Digest, Dr Magsaysay has also authored research articles which have been peer-reviewed and published in academic journals.
On behalf of the University, I thank Dr Magsaysay for accepting this important leadership role in the Professional Schools.
I take this opportunity to extend the University’s gratitude to Mr Rodolfo P Ang, MBA for leading the AGSB these past six years. Mr Ang instituted reforms in the areas of quality management and standards, and helped forge new partnerships with industry, particularly in the CCE, where he launched the Le Cordon Bleu Ateneo de Manila Institute and established Corporate Universities with Jollibee Foods Corporation, Rebisco, and AXA Philippines.
I would also like to thank the Search Committee for their dedication and comprehensive conduct of the search process. The members are: Fr Jose M Cruz SJ, Mr Jose Gerardo A Cruz, Mr Paolo Maximo F Borromeo, Ms Gilda Lourdes G Del Rosario, Atty Jose Maria G Hofileña, and Ms Ana Bess G Pingol.
Mr Luisito G Montalbo, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, will continue to serve as Officer-in-Charge of the AGSB from 1 October to 14 November 2020.
