5 New Faculty Join Rady for Coming School Year

New Rady Faculty

School’s almost back for the season. That means that campuses will be teeming with new students—and even new faculty. The Rady School of Management at the UC San Diego has added five new professors this school year, according to a recent press release.

The new additions are Jeremy Bertomeu, Associate Professor of Accounting; Edwige Cheynel, Assistant Professor of Accounting; Uma Karmarkar, Assistant Professor of Marketing and ITO; Michael Meyer, Assistant Teaching Professor of ITO; and William Mullins, Assistant Professor of Finance.

“These new faculty bring exceptional credentials to our school and join a team of Rady School faculty who are internationally recognized for the quality of their research,” Dean Robert S. Sullivan said in the press release.

And the dean is right: The school already boasts faculty members who are experts in their field, including ones who have taught at New York University and the UCLA Anderson School of Management, among many others. Some professors like Wendy Liu have even had their work published in nationally lauded journals like Journal of Consumer Research and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, as well as media publications like Time Magazine.

These three professors joining the faculty in the fall bring expertise from varying fields: accounting, finance, innovation, marketing, and technology and operations. They also have built some impressive resumes from their previous employers. Bertomeu has taught at Baruch College in New York. Cheynel was previously with the Columbia Business School. Karmarkar was teaching at the Harvard Business School, and Mullins is heading to San Diego from the Sloan School of Management at MIT.

These faculty will teach in all different programs within the Rady School including the MBA, Master of Finance, and Master of Science in Business Analytics programs. The school has been slowly growing its faculty numbers to accommodate the launch of its Master of Finance and Master of Science in Business Analytics degree programs. In the past two years, the faculty has grown by 12 people.
