Sanjay Varshney has been named the new dean of the College of Business Administration at California State University, Sacramento. His appointment follows a national search that began last year.

Varshney is currently a professor of finance at the State University of New York Institute of Technology, where he previously served as dean of the School of Management from 1999 to 2003. He has also taught at the University of San Francisco.

Varshney came to the United States from India when he was 21, after earning an undergraduate degree in accounting and financial management from Bombay University. He earned a master’s degree in economics from the University of Cincinnati and a doctorate in finance from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.

“I’m pleased we were able to attract a dean of the caliber of Dr. Varshney from a pool of very qualified candidates,” said Ric Brown, the vice president for academic affairs at CSUS. “I know he will bring a great deal of energy to our already outstanding College of Business Administration.”

Varshney’s research interests include market microstructure, new securities issuance and corporate valuation, and his publications have been included in numerous academic journals. He has also served as a financial consultant for leading Wall Street firms and trained top executives in San Francisco.

As dean of the SUNYIT School of Management, his accomplishments included initiating and leading the AACSB accreditation process, improving the faculty’s doctoral rate from 50 percent to 85 percent, establishing the fundraising program and launching a new graduate degree in technology management.

Varshney’s appointment is effective July 15. He replaces Felicenne Ramey, who left the position last fall after six years. The College has been headed by Richard Guarino, associate dean, in the interim.
