Drawing on his experience teaching in a number of countries, Mr. Beldona said that employers are increasingly able to tap into an international talent pool. Amid broad competition, graduates with resume-worthy experiences from their degree program can notably improve their chances for advancing their careers, he said.
"Students should be able to document what they've learned, sit across the table from a hiring manager and explain why they are qualified," said Dr. Beldona, citing examples like presentations to industry groups and proposals that are implemented at regional companies. "Because of the effects of globalization, with our students competing internationally, it has made it even more important."
Dr. Beldona will begin his role as dean on July 31, following a national search to find a replacement for the school's former dean, Dr. Dan Moshavi.

Most recently serving as associate dean of the Graduate School of Business at Rhode Island's Bryant University, Dr. Beldona helped develop a number of hands-on courses for each year of education in the undergraduate school of business. Programs included an "e-pitch" in the freshman year, service learning in the sophomore year, internship programs for juniors and competitive programs for seniors. Businesses were encouraged to participate on a number of levels throughout those programs.
While Mr. Beldona has yet to begin his work in determining specific goals while at Dominican, he emphasized the importance of input from the rest of the university and regional employers.
"My philosophy is guided by those interactions. I like to listen to different people and work very collaboratively with stakeholders to move the organization forward," he said.
The pursuit of partnerships that extend the education of business students has been underway within the university as well, with a number of new courses that emphasize interactions in service-based learning, science programs and the business incubator and accelerator connected to the school, the Venture Greenhouse. Those efforts were part of what attracted Mr. Beldona to Dominican, he said.
In selecting Dr. Beldona to head the business school, Steven Weisler, university provost, said that the university was attracted to his history of developing new curricular programs.

Partnerships across academic disciplines was also a priority for business programs under his leadership, Mr. Beldona said in the announcement.
"What attracted me to Dominican was the compelling vision of the senior management team, as well as the energy and enthusiasm that the faculty and administrators demonstrated for new ideas, cross-disciplinary programs and global connections," he said.
As an instructor, Mr. Beldona's work has focused on undergraduate and graduate-level topics in international business and global finance. He has helped to create programs that expanded Bryant University's global reach, including international study and intercultural programs.
Mr. Beldona helped to launch undergraduate majors in human resource management, entrepreneurship and global supply-chain management at Bryant. At the graduate level, he helped to build connections between regional companies and faculty to develop high-level specialty programs in global supply-chain management, international business and global finance.
Students were required to participate in several hands-on courses each year, including business pitches, service learning, internships and competitions. Those activities were conducted in partnership with the regional business community.
Mr. Beldona was the Larry Jones Fellow of Corporate Governance at Wichita State University from 2001-2007, where he was also the Entrepreneurship Research Associate for the school's Center for Entrepreneurship. He was an associate professor of international business at the International University of Japan from 2000-2001, and was an assistant professor of international business at Rutgers University from 1994-2000.
