Indian American professor Soumitra Dutta is appointed as dean of Oxford Saïd. He will begin his new role on June 1st. This follows the resignation of Professor Peter Tufano, who will step down as Dean in June 2022 after 10 years in the position.

"I am thrilled to be joining Oxford University's Saïd Business School. My daughter Sara graduated from Oxford, and my wife Lourdes and I enjoyed a delightful half-year sabbatical there as well. We are both excited to be a part of such a varied, dynamic, and inventive group," said Dutta.
