Stephanie Fujii, MBA ’04, has been named the first assistant dean of the Full-time MBA Program and Admissions, a newly created position at Haas.
Fujii was appointed by Haas Dean Rich Lyons, effective Aug. 1, 2014.
An alumna and nine-year veteran at Haas, Fujii served most recently as executive director of Full-time MBA Admissions. In her new role, she will oversee both the full-time MBA admissions and the full-time MBA program office.
Fujii has held a number of roles at Haas over the past decade. As executive director of admissions for the Full-time MBA program, she led her team in integrating the school’s Defining Principles into the admissions process. She also helped streamline the admissions process, moving to an online evaluation system, and consolidating application rounds from four to three.
“Under Stephanie’s leadership, Haas has maintained one of the highest selectivity rates among top MBA programs while continuing to bring in a richly diverse class,” said Jay Stowsky, senior assistant dean for instruction.
Fujii and her team have strengthened the diversity of the applicant pool, significantly increasing applications from international candidates, women, underrepresented U.S. minorities, and military candidates in particular.
Prior to her promotion to executive director of admissions for the Full-time MBA Program, Fujii served as senior associate director and associate director of admissions.
Before returning to Haas to continue her career, she served as the executive director of Kokoro Assisted Living, a 54-unit assisted living community in San Francisco.
She has remained on the board of Kokoro, and has chaired its Nominating Committee since 2013.
As part of the new Full-time MBA Program and Admissions department structure, Erin Kellerhals will become the executive director of Full-time MBA admissions and Dan Sullivan will be the director of the Full-time MBA Program Office.
