    <td class=Professor Frank Horwitz, director of the GSB, has been appointed as the new director of the Cranfield School of Management in the UK, a leading business school in Europe.

Professor Frank Horwitz, director of UCT's Graduate School of Business (GSB) since 2004, has been named as the new director of the Cranfield School of Management in the UK, one of Europe's leading and globally ranked business schools. He will take up the post on 1 April 2009.

Horwitz is one of the longest-serving GSB members of faculty, having been at the School for nearly 23 years, some eight of which as either acting director or director.

Horwitz described his appointment at Cranfield as a hugely exciting and challenging new opportunity.

"Cranfield is a world player in a highly competitive business school environment and I am deeply honoured to be appointed to lead this top school," he said. "It will no doubt be hard to leave the Graduate School of Business, which has been my career home for so many years."

There have been many highlights for the GSB under Horwitz's watch. This includes four consecutive appearances on the Financial Times' top 100-MBA ratings, a top-10 rating by the Economist Intelligence Unit for executive education, and full re-accreditation by the European Quality Improvement System.

Horwitz will take early retirement from UCT next year.
