COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The University of South Carolina has chosen a specialist in international business from North Carolina as the new dean for the Darla Moore School of Business.
USC provost Michael Amiridis says 56-year-old Peter Brews takes over Jan. 16.
Brews is a native of South Africa and is a professor of strategy and entrepreneurship at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina.
Amiridis says Brews brings more than 25 years of international business education experience to the position. Brews has written about strategic management for firms dealing with the Internet and the issue of world-wide productivity.
John McDermott has served as the school's interim dean since June when Hildy Teegen stepped down as dean.
The Moore School has more than 4,000 undergraduate students and nearly 900 graduate students.
