DISTINGUISHED SCHOLAR, FORMER WHITE HOUSE ECONOMIST GEORGE G. DALY NAMED DEAN OF NYU STERN SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

 NEW YORK, March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. George G. Daly, distinguished scholar, former White House economist, and long-time dean of the University of Iowa's College of Business Administration, has been named to head the Stern School of Business at New York University, effective August 1.
 In making the announcement, NYU president L. Jay Oliva said, "I know I speak for everyone in the University when I say how enormously pleased we are that someone of George Daly's considerable talents has agreed to come to New York University to head the Leonard N. Stern School of Business. I am sure that under Dean Daly's leadership, the Stern School will continue its ascent among the top business schools in the nation, and indeed, in the world."
 Daly has served as dean at the University of Iowa's business school since 1983. Under his tenure, the school constructed and financed a $35 million business school building; significantly increased the number of women and minority students and faculty members; initiated coordinated outreach activities that have resulted in a six-fold increase in annual private fund-raising; and attracted a number of distinguished scholars from leading universities.
 Prior to joining the University of Iowa, Dr. Daly served as Dean of the College of Social Sciences at the University of Houston, Assistant Director at the Institute for Defense Analyses in Washington, D.C., Chairman of the Department of Economics at the University of Houston, and Chief Economist at the Office of Energy Research and Development in the White House. He earned an A.B. from Miami University in Ohio, and both his M.A. and Ph.D. from Northwestern, all in economics.
 Dr. Daly is a specialist in microeconomics and the economics of organizations and contracting. His current research concerns contracting in professional sports.
 "I'm very excited by this opportunity to join NYU," Daly noted. "I see it as a University on the move. More importantly, I was impressed by the University's very strong sense of community. That is important at a University in general, and at a business school in particular. At NYU, and the Stern School, there is a sense of momentum and spirit about the place. NYU's energy and vision impress me tremendously."
 Daly will succeed Richard R. West, who served as dean of the Stern School for nine years. "I am delighted George Daly has agreed to become the Stern School's next dean," West said. "Beyond bringing extensive experience to the position, he has all of the personal qualities to have a most successful deanship here. I look forward to working with him on a smooth transition."
 During his tenure as Stern dean, West helped lead the business school to the forefront of management education. Under his watch, the school developed new curricula for its graduate and undergraduate divisions stressing the principles of international business, team work, communication skills, ethics and cross-disciplined approaches to business management. Its faculty also adopted measures to weigh effective teaching more heavily in tenure and promotion decision. West also saw to the completion of Stern's new, $68 million Management Education Center on NYU's Greenwich Village campus.
 On April 23, leading members of the nation's business community and other friends of the Stern School will gather to dedicate the Center, which boasts state-of-the-art computer capabilities, expansive study and lounge spaces, varied classroom designs and more. The three-building complex also allowed Stern's graduate division to move from the Wall Street area to join its undergraduate college and the larger NYU community at Washington Square.
 After a year-long sabbatical, West plans to return to Stern to teach finance.
 The Stern School of Business is one of the world's leading management education programs. Its M.B.A. program is consistently ranked among the nation's top 20, and its undergraduate college is considered to rank among the top 10. Stern offers B.S., M.S., M.B.A. and Ph.D. degrees, and its primary strengths are in international business, finance, information systems and accounting. Stern students hail from more than 60 nations, and represent every state in the country.
 New York University, with an enrollment of 48,000 undergraduate and graduate students, is the world's largest private university and one of the nation's premiere research universities. Its 13 schools, colleges and divisions offer degrees in law, medicine, dentistry, fine arts, liberal arts, film, social work, and more.
