Brigitte C. Madrian will replace Lee T. Perry, son of Elder L. Tom Perry, as dean of the BYU Marriott School of Business in 2019, making her the first woman to ever fill that position.

Brigham Young University Academic Vice President Jim R. Rasband has announced that Brigitte C. Madrian has been named the ninth dean of the BYU Marriott School of Business.

Madrian is currently the Aetna Professor of Public Policy and Corporate Management and chair of the Markets, Business and Government Area in the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She will join the school and begin her five-year term as dean on January 1, 2019.

“Dr. Madrian has a distinguished record of scholarship, teaching, and public service,” Rasband said. “She pairs her impressive record with wise judgment, deep roots at BYU, and a commitment to the Mission and Aims of the university. I am confident that she will lead the BYU Marriott School of Business with wisdom, energy, and vision.”
