    Associate Professor position in International Business housed in the Department of Management, to begin Fall 2022.

    Ideal candidates should demonstrate a strong record (or promise thereof in the case of Assistant rank) in both research
    and teaching. The candidate will help continue the rise of UA's research and teaching reputation, culture, and
    impact. We are open to a broad range of IB research foci but are especially interested in those focusing on IB-related
    aspects of strategy, entrepreneurship or organizational behavior. Although not required, we are interested in candidates
    willing to teach import/export management. At the graduate level, the college offers a Master's in Management with a
    focus in Global Business, and at the undergraduate level, the college offers an International Business Minor. Global
    business is also part of the curriculum for UA's MBA and EMBA programs. UA also offers a PhD in Management.
