This paper evaluates dean turnover, highlighting differences between intended versus actual exit strategies using survey data. We delineate the various exit options and address the advantages and disadvantages associated with each. Current and prospective business school deans, as well as university administrators, may utilize these findings to better prepare for leadership transitions.
