Message from the Dean


Welcome to Barry! I'm honored to serve as the interim dean of the Andreas School of Business (ASB) at Barry University. We share the University's mission of meeting you where you are and helping you get to where you want to be.

I'm very passionate about that mission and our commitment to build ethical, effective, and responsible business leaders for our diverse community. At Barry, you'll find an inclusive environment with diverse and exceptional faculty. 

We are at the forefront of ethical business education covering the fundamentals, the strategic, and even the spiritual side of transformative business practices, all within the context of an exceptionally diverse city that has deep roots in many cultures. Miami serves as another layer of the extraordinary learning environment we build here at Barry. 

Our programs are imbued with our core commitments to truth, inclusivity, social justice, and collaborative service. Our business programs develop incomparable skills for business leaders while promoting the common good, witnessing the power of inclusivity, and sharing in the sacredness of the Earth for a sustainable future.

I encourage you to engage our vibrant community. All of us at the Andreas School of business look forward to welcoming you and hearing about your goals and how we can help you reach them. And if you need anything, don't hesitate to reach out.
