Edward Snyder has been appointed to a second term as Dean of the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business beginning July 1, 2006. He has served as Dean since July 1, 2001.

Snyder, the George Pratt Shultz Professor of Economics, focuses his research on industrial organizations, antitrust economics, law and economics, and financial institutions. He teaches a course for M.B.A. students on the economic analysis of major policy issues with Professors Gary Becker and Kevin Murphy.

Snyder is co-editor of the Journal of Law & Economics and senior scholar at the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics at the University of Chicago. He also is a member of the advisory board for the energy and industrial group of Accenture, Inc., and chairman of the academic council for Huron Consulting Group.

In appointing Snyder to a second term, University President Don M. Randel said, “This is a good moment to acknowledge and celebrate Ted’s accomplishments in his first four years as Dean. Building on the foundations laid by his predecessors, he has worked successfully with faculty and students to promote the School’s research and education missions and has moved the GSB into new and better quarters.”

Before joining Chicago GSB as Dean in 2001, Snyder was Dean of the University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business Administration. Earlier in his career he was senior associate dean at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.

Snyder received a B.A. in economics and government in 1975 from Colby College, an M.A. in public policy from the University of Chicago in 1978 and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1984.
