Applicants will need at least a Master's degree (or professional equivalent) in a relevant management focused subject and recent teaching experience. Preference will be given to candidates holding PhDs / close to completion and/or with a record of publications in the relevant field. Your growing research portfolio and your ability to network and develop partnerships with external organisations will further enhance the School's profile.
