Marriott School Professor Chosen as BYU–Hawaii Dean
D. Wilson smiles at people's reaction to his appointment
as dean of BYU–Hawaii's School of Business. "There's a group
of people who think I'm going to spend my life on the beach,"
Wilson said. "A growing list of faculty have already volunteered
to become visiting professors."
Wilson says he is excited for the opportunity to play a part
in the dynamic, evolving future of BYU–Hawaii. "As more students
from Asia and other areas around the Pacific come to the school,
the international and business opportunities for BYU–Hawaii
and its students are going to take off," he said.
Thirty-one percent of BYU–Hawaii's student body are enrolled
in the School of Business, and 60 percent of those enrolled
are international students. Wilson said he looks forward to
working with such a diverse student body and is anxious to
help students acquire the business skills needed to be a force
for good in their respective countries.
Wilson obtained his doctorate of business administration in
international business and international corporate finance
from Harvard Business School in 1979, his MBA from Northwestern
University in 1971, and his bachelor's degree in German from
Weber State College in 1969.
