The CBE has been accredited by AACSB since 2000. To be considered for this position, applicants must have earned a doctoral degree in Human Resources Development or closely-related field. The primary professional responsibilities of instructional faculty members are: teaching, research, and service to the University, profession and to the community. These responsibilities generally include: advising students, participation in campus and system-wide committees, maintaining office hours, working collaboratively and productively with colleagues, and participation in traditional academic functions. Therefore, successful applicants are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching excellence with relevant experience in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in HRD, preferably from an AACSB accredited university. In addition, applicants should be active in research resulting in publications in good quality journals.

English is the language of instruction and communication within the CBE. A generous benefits package is offered to successful applicants, which includes a competitive tax-free salary that is determined according to rank and experience, yearly round-trip air tickets for the instructor and his/her family (spouse and up to three children), tuition support for children's schooling, a one-time settling-in allowance, free housing accommodation, free health care insurance, paid holidays and summer vacation, and an end-of-contract gratuity. The University also offers an engaging research environment and provides opportunities for financial support for research. Research funding can also be sought from national foundations in the UAE.
