Dear Oregon State Colleagues:

Dr. Carroll is Dean of the Eberhardt School of Business and Professor of Management at the University of the Pacific, where he has worked to prioritize a superior, student‐centered learning experience. Prior to joining the University of the Pacific, Dr. Carroll served as Associate Dean of Executive Development and President of Corporate Solutions LLC at the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business, where he fostered corporate partnerships that addressed employer talent needs and promoted student experiential learning projects. He also served as director of the nationally ranked professional MBA program at South Carolina, leveraging technology and a blended learning approach to deliver classes across seven sites in two states. 

Before his time at the University of South Carolina, Dr. Carroll was a member of the faculty at Georgia Tech, where he developed innovative academic courses and cultivated external partnerships. Dr. Carroll is a founding board member of the Organizational Design Community, an international group of scholars and executives dedicated to advancing the theory and practice of organization design. He has also served in many community, non-profit, and business development advisory or board roles.

Dr. Carroll's expertise focuses on competitive strategy and organization. He has consulted and delivered executive development programs to companies in the aerospace, apparel, banking, computer, construction, energy, engineering services, media, mining, petroleum, pharmaceutical, railroad, restaurant, and telecommunication industries, as well as several government agencies. He holds a PhD in management from Duke University.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Carroll to Oregon State and thanking Dr. Jim Coakley for serving as interim dean of the College of Business since summer 2019. Dr. Coakley also serves as Senior Associate Dean for Analytics and Operations in the college and will continue in that role.
