Job Description: The College of Business is inviting applications for a full-time, nine month Teaching Instructor beginning August 2017 to teach twelve semester hours of undergraduate courses in the Leadership and Professional Development Program (LaPDP). This is a non-tenure track position. The candidate will also be expected to provide service to the university, community, and profession, regularly attend college and department events and undertake additional duties as assigned by the director and/or chair. The current position involves teaching face-to-face classes but may involve some course sections online in the future. This position will be responsible for teaching freshmen students in the BUSI 1200, Strategy First course. BUSI 1200, Strategy First, is designed to create enthusiasm for the study of business and to provide a foundation for personal and professional leadership development for first year business students. Using Business Week as the textbook, students examine strategy motives and fundamental business concepts that drive companies to operate as they do. Sophomores take BUSI 2200, Experiential Leadership, which builds practical applied team and interpersonal skills in a team environment. BUSI 3200, Professional Development and Ethical Leadership, is the junior year course that emphasizes developing a personal brand while behaving in a professional manner. The College of Business Leadership and Professional Development (LaPDP) program culminates with the BUSI 4200, Leadership Capstone course. Building off of skills developed in the previous LaPDP courses as well pulling from their core and concentration coursework, students will work in small teams to demonstrate their ability to work through and present a solution to a business issue.
