Posting Date: 10-29-2013
The Management Area of the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia is seeking applications for a full-time tenure track position in strategic management, beginning in August 2014.
The position is open to all ranks. Candidates must have an established record of both excellent research and outstanding teaching. For appointment at the Assistant Professor level, applicants must ideally have at least two years of experience beyond completion of the Ph.D., possess practical business experience, and demonstrate clear success and potential for a strong record in research and teaching. Particular consideration will be given to scholars whose research has potential synergies with current McIntire faculty (e.g., strategic leadership and decision making, corporate governance).
Currently, the McIntire School of Commerce (http://www.commerce.virginia.edu) awards a Bachelor of Science in Commerce, a Master of Science in Accounting, Master of Science in Commerce (Finance and Marketing/Management) and a Master of Science in the Management of Information Technology. McIntire is recognized for excellence and innovation in undergraduate and graduate business education and scholarship. In its 2013 annual ranking of undergraduate business programs, BloombergBusinessWeek magazine again ranked the McIntire School of Commerce second in the nation. Consistent with its Jeffersonian heritage, McIntire enjoys a culture of friendly and open exchange among faculty and between faculty and students.
McIntire serves over 660 undergraduates and 250 graduate students. Undergraduate students enter the Commerce School in their third year at the University and concentrate in one or more of six fields: accounting, finance, information technology, management, and/or marketing. A recent New York Times article identified McIntire's Integrated Core Experience for third year students as the envy of other business schools. The major professional services firms (e.g., advertising, accounting, consulting, and investment banks) and many of the Fortune 500 corporations actively recruit McIntire graduates. In 2008, McIntire moved into a new, 156,000 square foot academic complex on the Lawn in the heart of UVA's historic Central Grounds, designed by Thomas Jefferson. Charlottesville is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is rated highly as a desirable location to live.
