Biography

Dr. Minu Ipe is the Knowledge Enterprise Architect and Senior Fellow for Leadership and institutional Design at Arizona State University. In these roles, Minu serves as an advisor to the President, working on multiple efforts that advance the design, strategy, and culture of ASU.  Minu’s efforts are based on a long term view of the institution, with a focus on strengthening ASU’s capacity to advance its mission in a sustainable, agile, adaptable and self-propagating manner.

Minu brings a mix of experiences to this position.  Her research and academic work have spanned traditional boundaries and include transdisciplinary collaborations within organizations, intra- and inter-agency collaborations, leadership development, and cultural aspects of international business. During her 15 years at ASU, she has designed and led multiple efforts that have advanced the goals and mission of the institution.   

As Faculty Director at the W. P. Carey School of Business, Minu was responsible for the Working Professionals MBA programs that included on-campus, fully online and hybrid delivery models. During her seven years in this role, she led the design and launch of a new MBA program, the transition from fully on-campus to hybrid programs, two major curriculum reviews, and the ongoing adaptation of the curriculum to deal with external changes. 

At ASU, Minu is a co-founder and steering committee member of the Leadership Academy, an innovative year-long program that develops leaders and multi-disciplinary research teams. Over 200 faculty and senior research staff have successfully completed this program since its inception in 2012. She also co-leads the Advanced Leadership Initiative, a new effort aimed at cultivating a pool of senior leaders at ASU.

As a Clinical Professor in the department of Management and Entrepreneurship, Minu continues to engage with students in the MBA programs. In 2016, she was the recipient of the Outstanding MBA and Master’s teaching award.
