Paulo Goes became the 14th dean of the Freeman School on August 23, 2021. A native of Brazil, Goes earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil, and a master’s in production engineering from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He began a career in civil engineering before immigrating to the U.S. and earning a master’s in operations research and a PhD in business administration from the University of Rochester.
Goes’ work regularly appears in leading academic journals, and he often presents and delivers keynote addresses at national conferences in the field of information systems. From 2013 to 2015, he was editor-in-chief of Management Information Systems Quarterly, one of the most prestigious journals in that field.
Prior to joining the Freeman School, Goes served for five years as the Dean and Halle Chair in Leadership at the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management. Previously, he served nearly eight years as head of the nationally ranked Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) and the Salter Distinguished Professor of Management and Technology at the University of Arizona.
At Stirling, we are proud of our outstanding teaching, research excellence, award-winning facilities, diverse campus community and vibrant student life.
We remain committed to delivering the Stirling experience – albeit, for the time being, in new and innovative ways. At the centre of this commitment is the health, safety and well being of our staff, students and the wider community.
We are implementing new and enhanced measures for our autumn semester that will keep you safe while at the same time allowing our campus buildings to reopen, services to be reinstated, and the resumption of some face-to-face teaching in small groups.
Please refer regularly to these pages for further information. I look forward to welcoming you to campus.
