Cass Business School

Dean of Cass Business School and Professor of Management


Marianne W. Lewis is Dean of Cass Business School and Professor of Management.

She joins Cass after a decade as associate dean at the University of Cincinnati, having earned her PhD from the University of Kentucky, and her MBA from Indiana University.

Her research explores leadership and management issues involving organizational paradoxes. Change and complexity accentuate tensions – competing demands, contradictory pressures and challenging double-binds.

Her work develops paradox theory to explore related leadership opportunities and challenges. Studies span contexts, applying this lens in such fields as product development, organizational change, governance, and technology implementation. Her paper, “Exploring paradox: Toward a more comprehensive guide” received the Academy of Management Review Best Paper Award in 2000.

Her work also appears in other leading journals, such as the Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Journal of Operations Management, and Human Relations. Professor Lewis was a UK Fulbright in 2014, and is currently completing two books addressing leadership and organizational paradox.
