You are invited to apply for a visiting faculty position in a new undergraduate program, a B.A. in Business, Organizations and Society. The program is interdisciplinary and focuses on the role and impact of business within society. Established on principles of the liberal arts, the program integrates business theory and application, and prepares students to take on roles in businesses and effectively and holistically examine the implications of business decisions for society from multiple perspectives (i.e., social, political, economic, and cultural).

The program seeks applicants whose research and teaching are rooted in Management, Entrepreneurship, Business Ethics Social Impact, or a related area.

The visiting position is typically for one academic year and the expected teaching load is four courses, dependent on rank. The classes are relatively small and typically have at most 24 students. Candidates are expected to be excellent teachers of undergraduate courses. While the following list is not inclusive, anticipated courses/subject areas include: Entrepreneurship; Business Ethics; Social Ventures; Sustainability and Social Impact; Leadership, Strategy; and Management and Organization.
