Craig Wallace joins the faculty at the Daniels College of Business

The University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business has named Professor Craig Wallace the new chair of the Department of Management. Wallace comes to Daniels from Oklahoma State University where he was a professor and chair in the Spears School of Business. While at OSU, he started the world’s first PhD in business for executives.

“Craig brings a tremendous amount of energy focused on leadership development that will be an immediate and direct benefit to our students,” says Daniels Dean Brent Chrite. “He is an active scholar with more than 50 publications. And, he is a true scientist-practitioner believing that good science can inform good business practice and good practice can inform good business research.”

Wallace will lead the Master of Science in Management program at Daniels, a 45-credit hour program in which students learn skills to lead and manage in any organization. The MS in Management is highly hands-on and exposes students to the latest in leadership while providing a learning platform and opportunities to network with proven leaders across a variety of industries.

“I would encourage those with a deep thirst for advancing their own leadership potential to give this program a close look,” Wallace says. “We are in the throes of significantly enhancing this program to boost an individual’s leadership skill set to offer tangible benefits to not only the student, but also to any employer in any area.”

Large and small organizations routinely seek Wallace’s advice on leadership, talent, innovation and organizational change. Wallace has published his research in the Journal of Management, the Journal of Business & Psychology, the Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, the Journal of Organizational Behavior and the Organizational Psychology Review. He is a two-term associate editor for the Journal of Management and is a fellow in the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology.
