Professor Marcus Alexis retires

After a distinguished 29-year career at the Kellogg School and Northwestern University, Management and Strategy Professor Marcus Alexis will retire.

Professor Alexis received his doctorate degree in economics from the University of Minnesota in 1959 and joined Kellogg in 1970 as a professor of economics. In 1985 he became dean of the School of Business of the University of Illinois at Chicago and returned to the permanent Northwestern faculty in 1991 as Board of Trustees Professor of Economics, Management and Strategy, and African-American Studies. In his long tenure at Kellogg, Professor Alexis served six years as chair of the Department of Economics. He has authored or edited seven books and monographs and more than 60 articles and book chapters, making major contributions to his academic area. He has also been a member of key Northwestern governance bodies.

"Professor Alexis is a colleague's colleague," said Shane Greenstein, chair of the Kellogg Management and Strategy Department. "His career has straddled the ivory tower and the so-called real world. We thank him for his intellectual contributions and for his commitment to bringing insights to a wider audience."
