Higher Education Power 50 continued
Jelena Kovačević is the Dean of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
Jelena Kovacevic joined NYU Tandon at an exciting time. Since the school affiliated with NYU, its research funding surged and it advanced almost 40 places in U.S. News and World Report rankings. In 2017, Tandon’s Veterans Future Lab – which provides support for veterans starting their own businesses – received $1 million in REDC funding. Kovacevic recently joined other higher education leaders, politicians and CEOs in signing an open letter asking Amazon to return to New York City.
