K.J. Martijn Cremers has been appointed Martin J. Gillen Dean of the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame by University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., effective July 1.
Cremers, the Bernard J. Hank Professor of Finance and interim dean of the college since July, was selected from among a number of eminently qualified candidates who were considered during a six-month national search.
An internationally recognized expert in the empirical aspects of investing and corporate governance, Cremers joined the Notre Dame faculty as a professor of finance in 2012 after serving 10 years on the faculty of Yale University’s School of Management.
Cremers’ research has been published in the field’s leading academic journals, including the Journal of Finance, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Financial Economics, Stanford Law Review and Northwestern Law Review. His research also has received significant media attention from the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and numerous other major publications.
“Martijn is a distinguished scholar with a deep understanding of and commitment to Notre Dame's distinctive mission,” Father Jenkins said. “He will further the Mendoza College of Business’ work of making important contributions to research, training capable graduates who will be ethical leaders and encouraging us all to ask more of business.”
