Yash P. Gupta, founding dean of the Carey Business School at the Johns Hopkins University, will step down at the end of this academic year to become chief executive officer at SDP Telecom Inc.

Gupta has served as dean at the Carey school since it began operations in 2007. He oversaw development of the school's full-time MBA program and its move to the Legg-Mason Tower in Harbor East.

"I give all due credit for this significant progress to the first dean of the Carey School, Yash P. Gupta, who has been a tireless evangelist for the school and brought us to this important moment," said Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels. Daniels said the university will soon begin a national search for Gupta's replacement. Executive Vice Dean Phillip Phan will serve as interim dean starting July 1.
