The University of Miami School of Business Administration has announced five new faculty appointments that further distinguish the School as a leader in management education and research. The appointments include one associate professor and three assistant professors who join the School from some of nation’s top business schools and universities, as well as a new director of entrepreneurship programs.  

  • Peter Wysocki joins the School as an associate professor of accounting after eight years at the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he was also an associate professor. Wysocki, who holds a PhD from the University of Rochester’s Simon Graduate School of Business Administration, specializes in capital markets and corporate information, international accounting and comparative economics, and financial information, analysts and quantitative investment strategies.

  • Raphael Boleslavsky joins the School as an assistant professor of economics after earning his PhD from Duke University. Boleslavsky’s research focuses on microeconomic theory and financial economics.

  • Tal Gross comes to the School as an assistant professor of economics after earning his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His research focuses on health insurance, health care consumption, consumer bankruptcy and consumer finance.

  • Santiago Mingo joins the School as an assistant professor of management after earning his PhD from Harvard Business School. Mingo specializes in the effects of public policy on entrepreneurial activity and industry evolution, institutional environment and entrepreneurial activities in emerging economies, and the clean technology industry.

  • Ken Colwell joins the School as a lecturer and director of the School’s entrepreneurship programs. Colwell, who earned his PhD from the University of Oregon, comes to the School after five years at Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business, where he was an assistant professor of management. Colwell, whose research interests revolve around university technology transfer and the strategic factors that lead to success for startup firms, has extensive experience consulting with student teams writing business plans seeking to commercialize university-invented technologies.

“The recruitment of these distinguished individuals illustrates the strong commitment the School of Business Administration has made to research and teaching excellence,” said Barbara E. Kahn, dean of the School of Business Administration. “These appointments strengthen our leading accounting, economics and management departments, and will enhance our comprehensive, results-oriented approach to entrepreneurship education and research.”
