When Robert Dammon was the associate dean of Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School of Business, he never imagined that one day he would end up as the ninth dean of the school.
"Most academics do not set out on their careers with the goal of becoming a dean," Dammon says in a phone conversation with Poets&Quants. "It's something that just happened. I woke up one day and was the associate dean and then the dean."
But it's hard to imagine anyone more deserving and capable of the deanship at Tepper. Dammon came to the school in 1984 as an assistant professor after earning his MBA and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Besides one year as a visiting professor at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business, he has remained at Tepper, slowly working up through the ranks and was named associate dean in 2008. When he was asked to put his name in for consideration of the deanship in 2011, he was surprised. "I had not even thought about it (deanship) as the associate dean," he says. "It happened somewhat unexpectedly, but I was honored to have been given the opportunity to serve as dean of the school that has meant so much to me personally and professionally."
TEPPER'S INCOMING CLASS HAD OVER 3,000 APPLICANTS FOR ABOUT 120 SLOTS
Since taking over as dean, Dammon has balanced an emphasis on Tepper's tradition steeped in rigorous research and fundraising. The small size of the school allows curriculum reviews and changes every three or four years that Dammon says keeps the curriculum congruent with industry needs.

According to Dammon, it will be the geographic and intellectual epicenter on campus.
In an exclusive interview with Poets&Quants, Dammon speaks more about the upcoming building, how the school will continue to increase class-size from 85 two years ago to 140 to 150 to coincide with the opening of the building, and how Tepper takes advantage of its surroundings by collaborating with different schools on Carnegie Mellon's campus.
