The University of Maryland has named Alexander Triantis the new dean of the Smith School of Business. Triantis has been a finance professor at Smith for 17 years and served as the department head from 2006 to 2011. He will assume his new post on Sept. 1, replacing G. “Anand” Anandlingam, who recently left Smith after a five-year term to become the dean of Imperial College in London.

“As a current member of the Smith School community, Alex is perfectly positioned to build on the school’s remarkable achievements and capitalize on its unique strengths,” Mary Ann Rankin, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, said in a press release.

Triantis plans to continue the advancements the school has recently made in alumni relations, the student experience, and connections between policymakers, business leaders, and media. “I’m excited to have the opportunity to work in a new way with Smith’s outstanding community of faculty, students, alumni and staff to help the school reach its full potential as a world leader in business education,” he said in the release.

During his time as the finance department chairman, Triantis helped the school launch a new master’s degree in finance, as well as new undergraduate fellow programs. He has also served as a senior academic adviser for the Center for Financial Policy, which brings together businesses, academics, and government officials to discuss financial issues.

The Smith School most recently made news for freezing MBA tuition for a third year runningBloomberg Businessweek ranked the school 24th overall in its 2012 full-time MBA rankings, and sixth in student satisfaction.
