Edwin L. Miller
Regents' Proceedings 96

Edwin L. Miller, professor of business administration in the School of Business Administration, retired from active faculty status on June 30, 1997. Professor Miller received his B.A. and M.S. degrees from San Jose State College in 1951 and 1957, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree from the University of California in 1964. From 1960-63, he was an assistant professor at San Jose State College. He joined the University of Michigan faculty in 1964 as an assistant professor and was promoted to associate professor in 1968 and professor in 1972. From 1986-93, he also served as associate dean of the School of Business Administration.

Professor Miller has been an excellent teacher and faculty member. He has been a central figure in the M.B.A. curriculum for many years and was involved in the early design of the M.B.A. core curriculum. His involvement in the beginnings of the school's Asia strategy and other internationalization initiatives eventually led to such flagship programs as the M.B.A. domestic corps, the M.B.A. Africa corps, and the Center for International Business Education, among others. He also oversaw the development and growth of the school's Division of Research, which now coordinates and guides the many faculty research initiatives.

Professor Miller's unwavering dedication to the students and programs of the business school was an integral part of the dean's administration for many years. The Regents now salute this faculty member by naming Edwin L. Miller professor emeritus of business administration.
