Wharton's New Dean Makes History
July 1, 2020

We are proud to share this GMA video of Dr. Erika James on her first day as Dean of Wharton Business School.  Dr. James was one of our distinguished 2020 Live Learn Lead panelists last February 27, the same night news broke that she would be leaving as Dean of Emory's Goizueta Business School for the University of Pennsylvania. Her leadership perspective on her first day at Wharton is insightful, as it was when she spoke at Live Learn Lead. Congratulations again Dr. James.
