Magid is the first vice dean of the Kelley School’s urban campus in its nearly 50-year history. She is responsible for all academic, research, and service operations in Indianapolis and is successfully positioning the school to influence economic growth and community engagement throughout the region and state.

She is dedicated to equity and inclusion, and she champions the Kelley School’s role as a committed partner with Indiana businesses. She’s very deserving of this honor, and we’re fortunate to have her leadership and vision as Kelley forges a new future with IU Indianapolis.”
As vice dean, Magid oversees a school with internationally-recognized research faculty, undergraduate and graduate programs, including the top ranked part-time MBA program in the state and a unique physician-only MBA program. She leads 65 full-time and numerous community-based part-time faculty members, who teach and mentor more than 1,400 students across five major programs. This is the highest number of research-active faculty in more than two decades, and they contribute directly to emerging trends that address business needs.

Through research and transformative experiences that bridge the gap between knowledge and practice, the center develops leaders who improve their organizations, communities, and the quality of life for those around them.
