Central Michigan University Provost Michael Gealt has named Christopher Moberg dean of the College of Business Administration, effective July 15.


Moberg joins CMU from Ohio University, where he has served as senior associate dean of academic programs since 2017, as associate dean of academic programs from 2014-17 and as department chair of marketing from 2007-14. During his tenure at Ohio University, he served as senior leader for the college’s new strategic plan and served as the college’s lead contact for its Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business accreditation.

In addition to his leadership roles, Moberg taught marketing at Ohio University and Miami University and served as director of external relations for the Schey Sales Centre at Ohio University College of Business.

Since 1998, he has been a member of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals and served on the organization’s task force to develop a supply chain management certification program. He has been a reviewer and editorial review board member for the Journal of Business Logistics and has written and co-authored a number of articles for peer-reviewed journals.

He earned a doctoral degree in business administration from Cleveland State University, an MBA from Miami University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Mexico.

As dean, Moberg will lead all operations of the College of Business Administration — which is composed of several academic departments and institutes — and provide leadership for all undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs within the college. He also will serve on the Council of Deans, Academic Senate and Academic Planning Council.

Moberg was the candidate selected by a 17-member search committee comprising faculty, staff and alumni, and aided by search firm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates. He will replace Karl Smart, who has been serving as interim dean of the college since the retirement of Charles Crespy in September 2018.
