     Dr. Yash Appointed Dean of Marshall School of Business.

SEATTLE: Yash P. Gupta, who boosted enrollment and led a building campaign as dean of the University of Washington Business School, is leaving to take a similar post at the University of Southern California.

Gupta, hired away from Colorado in 1999, told business faculty members on March 30 he had accepted an offer to become dean of the Marshall School of Business at the school in Los Angeles in July. “It will be tough to leave,” Gupta said. “I feel very sentimental about it.”

In Los Angeles, the USC made an official announcement of the appointment of Gupta, 51. His appointment is effective July 1. “Yash's appointment follows an extensive search for the very best individual to lead the USC Marshall School in the 21st century,” Lloyd Armstrong Jr., provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, said in a statement. “He brings with him both an impressive track record of taking business schools to their next levels and a vision of what it takes to educate business leaders of the future.”

Marshall's MBA programme was ranked No. 17 nationwide by Business Week in 2002, its undergraduate programme was rated No. 11 by US News & World Report last year and its Leventhal School of Accounting is rated among the top five. Gupta earned a bachelor of science in engineering in 1973 from Punjab University in India. He holds a master's degree in production management from Brunel University of West London and a doctorate in management sciences from the University of Bradford in England.While at Washington, Gupta reorganized the undergraduate and graduate academic programmes and boosted fund-raising by 400%.
