For these positions, we seek qualified members who have interest or experience in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level (e.g., BBA, MBA, MS, professional MBA, executive MBA) in the synchronous and asynchronous formats. Position may involve teaching in summer semesters as well. The teaching load will be six courses per year for Clinical Assistant Professor and eight courses for Lecturer. Other service expectations are commensurate with the position level.

We have a vibrant and outstanding group of faculty at all ranks, many of whom have served (or are serving) as key leaders in the Academy of Management (including two past presidents) as well as editors of the field's leading journals. We seek to promote an environment characterized by respect, support, and understanding among our faculty.

    The Department of Management houses the Center for Human Resource Management, which has 25 different corporate partners (most of whom are Fortune 100 companies). The department also has close connections with the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship (which recently received a $10 million endowment) and Center for Executive Development (which provides customized executive education programs to a large network of corporate partners).
