Dominique Rouziès (Ph.D.), professor of marketing at HEC Paris, one of the world’s leading business schools, is the new Dean of Academic Affairs at BMI Executive Institute. She will be responsible for further expanding the world-class quality of the International Executive MBA programme that BMI delivers in Vilnius and Brussels.
“We are very pleased to have Professor Dominique Rouziès joining us. With her many years of academic and consulting experience, she will help us grow and develop even more. Most importantly, she will ensure our students are provided with the latest and most relevant knowledge,” says Jurga Bendikaitė-Ursavas, Director General at BMI Executive Institute. She notes that participants of both the Lithuanian and Belgian EMBA tracks choose BMI for the high quality of the studies, the flexibility of the programme, and the professional teacher-practitioners from top international business schools.
Dominique Rouziès is a professor of marketing at HEC Paris, where she served as academic director for master and executive master programmes and held the EDF Chair. Beyond academic publications, her work was featured in Harvard Business Review, Les Echos, and The Financial Times, among other business outlets. She has worked with many companies including Microsoft, EDF, Sanofi, and Orange Business Services, and at Station F, one of the world’s largest incubators.
Prof. Rouziès says she did not hesitate to accept the role of Academic Dean at BMI: “The Institute has successfully operated for more than 20 years in Lithuania, where it has an excellent reputation, a large circle of alumni, and an active community. In addition, the first EMBA cohort in Brussels graduated this year. Faculty from the best business schools are teaching here, and participants are enabled through a challenging learning environment. I am happy to join and help the participants transform their professional life,” she adds.
As Dean, she will help shape policies for EMBA and help recruit top international faculty. She will also oversee the programme’s accreditations for ensuring its positioning among the top European business schools.
Prof. Rouziès succeeds Dean Véronique Malleret, who successfully developed and shaped BMI’s EMBAs for the last 7 years. Dean Malleret will remain close to the institute through the Academic Council and as a member of its Board.
