Beaton-Wells Appointed Deputy Dean Of Melbourne Business School

Professor Caron Beaton-Wells is the new Melbourne Business School Dean.

Caron will join Melbourne Business School as its new Deputy Dean this month, following the retirement of Professor Paul Dainty.

“Melbourne Business School is in my DNA, literally. Both my parents taught here for many years – my father in strategy, my mother in organisational behaviour – and my sister is an alum,” she stated. “It seems I’m the one who got away, at least until now.”

Her relocation will only be to the other side of University Square – for many years, Caron has been a leader at the Melbourne Law School, where she began as a student and then lecturer before rising to hold a series of Associate Dean positions as a member of its executive team.

“My area of academic specialty is what’s called competition policy and law, and in fact that’s more about economics and business strategy than it is about black letter law in itself,” she said.

“Highlights of my academic research experience have involved engaging with business people to understand how they see the law, how it affects their businesses and how they respond to that as an opportunity, or as a challenge.”
