CUHK Business School is a leading business school and a pioneer in business education in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Business School comprises two schools – Accountancy and Hotel & Tourism Management; and four departments – Finance, Decision Sciences & Managerial Economics, Management and Marketing. The School has over 4,300 full-time and part-time students and has the largest business school alumni network in Hong Kong, with over 30,000 alumni worldwide.
 
The CUHK Business School now seeks to appoint a high calibre candidate to be involved in the teaching and academic support of its executive degree programmes. The Business School first offered executive degree programmes in 1993, aiming to nurture top-notch management talents to meet the needs of Hong Kong, Mainland China and the world.  It now offers a number of executive degree programmes based in Hong Kong and Mainland China. In light of rising corporate and managerial complexity and new challenges facing senior executives, the Business School sees new opportunities for its executive degree programmes to groom the next generation of executives who can bring and sustain competitive advantages of enterprises regionally and globally.
 
Applicants should preferably have (i) a higher degree in any business or other related discipline; (ii) strong track record in teaching reputable executive degree programmes; and (iii) good connection with the professional community, an international outlook, outstanding communication and networking skills, a long-term vision as well as strong commitment for executive education. Familiarity with the region is an advantage.
 
Reporting to the Dean, the appointee is expected to (a) deliver high quality teaching in the executive degree programmes and provide support to the programmes development in the global context; and (b) provide input for the overall success of executive degree programmes, enhancing the quality and reputation of the programmes, strengthening connection with the profession as well as community engagement.
 
Appointment will initially be made on contract basis for three years, renewable subject to mutual agreement, and may be considered for a courtesy title of Professor of Practice / Associate Professor of Practice in the relevant discipline.
 
Review of applications will begin on April 24, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled.  Shortlisted candidates may be invited for informal discussions, on-campus visits and interviews subsequently, as appropriate.
