Kenneth A. Kavajecz joined the Whitman School as Dean on July 1, 2013 after a nationwide search.

Kavajecz [kuh-vy-YETZ] holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an M.S. and Ph.D. in finance from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Kavajecz has served as a member of the Economic Advisory Board for the National Association of Securities Dealers and has worked as an assistant economist at the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System.

Kavajecz is an experienced academic administrator, having served successfully as associate dean for the Undergraduate and M.B.A. programs at the Wisconsin School of Business. Under his leadership, both the undergraduate and M.B.A. programs at Wisconsin improved demonstrably, with the M.B.A. program moving into the top 25. He comes highly recommended as an ethical, passionate and decisive leader, and someone who has earned the respect of his faculty both as a leader and a scholar.
