Dr. Andrew Tiger, interim dean of Angelo State University’s Norris-Vincent College of Business, has had the “interim” tag removed from his title and been appointed the permanent dean of the college.
An ASU faculty member since 2018, Tiger has served as interim dean since February 2021. He was previously an associate professor and the department chair for the Department of Management and Marketing.
As dean of the Norris-Vincent College of Business (NVCOB), Tiger will continue to oversee the operations of the Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance, Department of Management and Marketing, and Department of Aerospace Studies/ROTC. Together, these departments administer eight bachelor’s degrees, three master’s degrees, six integrated bachelor’s/master’s degree programs, and Air Force ROTC Detachment 847.
In April, Tiger was awarded a $151,296 grant from the U.S. Department of Education to enhance internship opportunities for ASU business students through the “NVCOB Internship Expansion Program.”
Dr. Don Topliff, ASU provost and vice president for academic affairs, announced Tiger’s appointment.
“After a national search, Dr. Andrew Tiger has been chosen as the next dean of the Norris-Vincent College of Business,” Topliff said. “Dr. Tiger has done an exemplary job of leading the college through the final stages of AACSB accreditation as the interim dean and proven that he is a capable leader who will continue the college’s rise to becoming the premier business school that ASU deserves. I want to thank the search committee for its diligence in this process and bringing it to a successful conclusion.”
Prior to being named interim dean, Tiger taught all levels of management courses at ASU. Also a prolific researcher, he has published more than 20 research articles in various business journals and delivered multiple presentations at national and international conferences.
In addition to teaching and research, Tiger serves on numerous campus committees, including the Strategic Planning Committee, Curriculum Committee and Assessment Committee for the NVCOB and the Intercollegiate Athletics Council, as well as chair of the committee spearheading ASU’s re-accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Outside of ASU, he is a reviewer for the International Turfgrass Society Research Journal and a consultant to the U.S. Golf Association (USGA).
Tiger earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in industrial engineering at the University of Oklahoma and his Ph.D. in industrial engineering at the University of Houston.
