Hult International Business School has appointed Luis Umana Timms as Dean of Hult’s newly-established San Francisco campus, and Ian Dougal as Dean of its London campus. The San Francisco outpost, which will open in September 2010, will become an integral part of Hult’s stable of campuses in London, Boston, Dubai and Shanghai.

“With these appointments, we continue to push for a level of academic excellence that will be consistent throughout our global campuses,”said Dr. Stephen Hodges, President of Hult. “Our academic leadership will provide students with a well-rounded MBA education with a uniquely international edge.”

Mr. Timms joined Hult in August 2009 as London Associate Dean and Director of Graduate Business Programs. Previously, he was Director of the Global Executive OneMBA Program at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University.

Dr. Dougal has been with Hult since 2000 and has served as Head of International Relations, then Director of Academic Quality Assurance, and later was involved in various master and undergraduate degree programs.

Hult’s expansion to San Francisco addresses surging demand for Hult’s one-year MBA program and the school’s unique global rotation program which allows academic study in multiple, international locations. San Francisco, regarded as a high-technology center, will add an innovative advantage to the Hult curriculum.
