National University announced the appointment of Alfred Ntoko as dean of the School of Business and Management.
Ntoko comes to the private, nonprofit National University from Empire State College of State University of New York, where he served as provost and vice president of academic affairs. Prior to that, he served as a dean at other business schools, including the School of Business and Information Systems at City University of New York; the College of Business and Public Administration at Kean University in Union, New Jersey.
According to National University, Ntoko developed his educational leadership skills by overseeing all online and on-campus academic programs, and assisting veteran and active military students at Empire State College, a background that fits well with National University’s strong commitment to serving adult learners, including those with military backgrounds.
Ntoko also has a strong background in fundraising and shared governance, as well as global programs, National University said.
“I'm honored to join National University,” Ntoko said. “The School of Business and Management has outstanding faculty, a strong alumni base, and extremely accessible curricula. I look forward to building upon that foundation and expanding relations with business and industry in the various communities we serve."
Ntoko's administrative experience includes positions as accounting department chair, graduate program director, academic advising director, and developer of a bachelor’s of science in logistics and supply chain management program, National University said.
“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Ntoko to National University as we identify new opportunities locally and nationally to build on the successes of our business school programs,” said National University Provost Gangaram Singh. “Dr. Ntoko brings an extensive background in academic leadership and business school management to his new position, along with an impressive body of scholarship in international finance, all areas that will clearly benefit our students and wider university community.”
National University is the flagship institution of the National University System.
Programs are offered at locations throughout California and across the nation, and are also available online.
