Florida International University named business professor Jerry Haar as director of its Eugenio Pino and Family Global Entrepreneurship Center.
He was director of the Entrepreneurship Center’s Institute of Family Business and associate director of the Knight Ridder Center for Excellence in Management. He also teaches management and serves as dean for international programs at FIU’s business school.
Haar said his priorities in the new post are to strengthen and expand the Pino Center and “achieve high quality and high visibility in all we do —supporting the College’s academic program; providing professional education, training and technical assistance; and fostering applied research.”
Known as straight-talking, humorous and prolific, Haar is a frequent speaker at WorldCity events, regular contributor to periodicals and author of about a dozen books. His most recent books include “Can Latin America Compete?” co-authored with analyst John Price and “Small Firms, Global Markets.” He is now working on a book on entrepreneurship in Latin America with Esteban Brenes of INCAE Business School in Costa Rica.
