Josh Quittner, editor of Business 2.0, has thrown his hat into the ring. It seems he's likely to be the final of five candidates. After the jump, the UC Berkeley J-School release:
This week marks the start of the campus visits by dean candidates. The committee appreciates your active participation in the first of these visits, and we encourage you to continue meeting with the candidates and attending their public presentations over the coming weeks.
We are delighted to report that Josh Quittner, currently the Editor of Business 2.0, has agreed to come for a campus visit just prior to spring break. We expect that he will be the final candidate to be considered by the committee.
Please note that we have rescheduled David Talbot's campus visit for mid-March. He was not entirely responsible for this change, but nonetheless sends his apologies. Neil Henry will give his public presentation tomorrow evening, and Dianne Lynch will be on campus early next week.
I have provided the dates and times for the public presentations for the remaining candidates below. The school will provide information on the meetings set up for specific constituencies.
Thanks again for your contributions to this important process.
