University Welcomes New College of Business Dean
Bellevue University welcomes Dr. Roderic Hewlett as the new Dean of the College of Business. Hewlett came to the University from Laureate Education, Incorporated where he led global product development and strategy for the management, business, and legal education programs. The programs range from bachelor’s level to doctoral level programs at Laureate universities and partner universities in all major global markets.
Bellevue University was a perfect match according to Hewlett.
"When you look at my professional, military, and academic background - you will notice a strong match with the mission, values, and traditions of Bellevue University," said Dr. Hewlett. "My research and outreach efforts include human and knowledge capital - which matches nicely with our new PhD in Human Capital and our Human Capital Labs. I also have a very strong interest in finance and treasury. I speak nearly every year at the Association for Financial Professional's (AFP) Annual Conference and have earned the Certified Treasury Professional (CTP) designation from AFP. We teach the Essentials of Cash Management in partnership with AFP and have an associate CTP program in the Bellevue University, College of Business."
Hewlett served as a distinguished professor in international business at Walsh College. As a distinguished professor, he taught doctoral and master’s level courses in global business, leadership, developing learning organizations, as well corporate finance and treasury. He also served as the Executive Vice President and Chief Academic Officer at Walsh College. Hewlett joined Walsh College on June 1, 2005 moving from Minot State University in Minot, North Dakota where he was dean of the business college and the graduate school. He returned to his home state of Michigan with an extensive background of military service, teaching and academic administration along with an extensive global business leadership track record. In December 2005, his book, The Cognitive Leader: Building Winning Organizations through Knowledge Leadership, was released.
Hewlett is also an adjunct professor in the executive MBA program at the prestigious Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in China. Prior to Minot, he was the director of the MBA program and associate professor at the University of Dubuque. He has also held positions as chief financial officer for the International Schools Group in Saudi Arabia, assistant professor at Clarke College, superintendent of capital projects and contracting services at Saudi Iron and Steel Corporation and pricing manager at Sundstrand Corporation. Additionally, Hewlett held several professional finance and pricing positions in the Aerospace Industry. He enlisted in the U.S. Regular Army in 1976 and retired from the U.S. Army National Guard in 2002 as lieutenant colonel.
