In addition, the successful candidate will work closely with the Associate Dean for International Business Programs, and is expected to provide service to the department, school and/or university.

The Department of Management is a highly collegial and productive group of scholars who value both excellent teaching and impactful research and publication. Collaboration on research projects provides important opportunities for mentoring junior faculty, which is a norm in the department. Our faculty have many publications in top management and international business journals, including Journal of International Business Studies, Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Global Strategy Journal, Journal of Management, Academy of Management Journal, and many others. Small class sizes mean that our faculty know their students really well. Attesting to the importance of international education, 60% of our students study abroad prior to graduation. Our students tend to do extremely well in business, and many of them come back to the business school to serve in a variety of roles as well as providing financial and other resources that provide opportunities to our students.
