Sanjay Putervu selected as dean at College of Business

The Cleveland State University Monte Ahuja College of Business has selected Sanjay Putrevu, Ph.D., dean of the College of Business at the University of Wyoming, as the new dean of the Cleveland State business school beginning July 1.

Putrevu earned his undergraduate degree in Management at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science in India and his doctorate in Marketing at the University at Buffalo, SUNY.

In a recent email interview Putrevu said he hopes to bring together faculty, staff and students to achieve a common goal for the future of the college. He will become dean of the business college after several interim deans held the position.

“It is premature to decide on changes,” Putrevu said. “I first need to come to CSU, meet with all the stakeholders and understand their concerns and aspirations. Once I have a better understanding of the various challenges and opportunities, together we'll set a course for the future of the college.”
The role is predominantly an administrative one with a $280,000 salary.

Putrevu’s perspective of his new job is a positive one as is his view of Cleveland. “It is a very exciting leadership opportunity in a vibrant city,” he said. “Everyone seems ready to embrace the future and willing to work hard to take the college and university to the next level.”

He aligned his priorities with the growing student body and expressed his openness to hearing the concerns of students.

“My priorities are student success, academic excellence and community engagement,” he said. “I would love to sit down with students to understand their concerns and seek their input as we chart a course for the future of the college.”
