Abstract

Dean Venky of the newly launched School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is faced with a range of opportunities and challenges as he presides over the launching of a new school of engineering at Harvard University. His opportunities include an ample endowment, a small but elite faculty, and the potential to collaborate with the other schools within Harvard. His challenges include attracting the best faculty and students, creating linkages across the university, and determining a strategy that will make Harvard engineering as well known as its other schools. Students must analyze the engineering school''s strengths and weaknesses relative to other top schools, the political challenges of organizational change, and the most appropriate strategy for the Dean to follow.
