In addition, the candidate is expected to pursue scholarly research leading to publications in high-quality, peer-reviewed journals; engage in outreach activities with the local business community; increase the visibility of programs; serve on department, school, and university-level committees; advise students; and participate in curricular review and development activities. Candidates with an interest in researching underrepresented entrepreneurial populations are highly preferred. In addition, candidates with entrepreneurial experience in the form of starting and operating businesses and/or working with university-based outreach programs such as entrepreneurship centers and small business institutes will have a major advantage.

Among the building's many noteworthy features are a 3-D printing innovation lab, a Financial Resource Center with multiple Bloomberg terminals, interview rooms for corporate recruiting, state-of-the-art classrooms and computer labs, a 150-seat lecture hall that may be used for public events as well as classes, collaborative spaces for networking, team building and group study and market research/analysis labs. The recently named Ellyn A. McColgan Student Services Center provides undergraduate students with integrated and individualized academic advisement and career placement programs from admission to graduation, and graduate students with support and resources for career development. The school also incorporates the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship, which fosters an entrepreneurial mindset and nurtures an extensive community of followers through innovative, interdisciplinary programs and events. The Feliciano School of Business is highlighted in The Princeton Review's Guide to the Best 295 Business Schools .

Nearly 95 full-time faculty and 30 staff members bring an impressive range of expertise to the School, with terminal degrees and advanced training from leading universities. The Feliciano School of Business is committed to enhancing its reputation and engagement with the business community while raising its scholarly profile, and dedicates substantial resources to support faculty research and development.
