In the spotlight
Election of the future Dean Per Joakim AGRELL Professor Per Joakim AGRELL was elected Dean of the Louvain School of Management at the Faculty Council of June 6, succeeding Professor Michel DE WOLF for a mandate of two years from September 1, 2018.
« I feel proud and humble to take the lead of the faculty », says Professor Per AGRELL, « The clear strategy to leverage upon the strong links to our research institutes, our exclusive international networks, and the complementarity of our two sites will be continued.
Naturally, the teaching quality is a priority for the faculty and this will guide us in the finetuning of the reform and the Master’s thesis processes. Finally, my mandate will also focus at recognition and transparency. Each member of our staff needs to receive recognition, support and guidelines for their personal professional development. The commitment of all staff members towards the collective goals requires trust and confidence in the processes, which my team and myself will achieve by transparency and openness. »
