The candidate selected will be expected to teach courses in entrepreneurial mindset, creativity, business model development, pitching, and business launch at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Opened in 2013, the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship creates opportunities to learn, create, design, connect and collaborate. Our curricula provide a rich, real-life entrepreneurial experience to students; and our rich ecosystem of talent helps us blur the line of where the campus ends and the entrepreneurial community begins by exposing students to mentors and other advisors who are entrepreneurs. Innovation is central in all we do, including in our MIX Lab, which provides tools for 3D printing, designing and making with the aim of transforming our students' mindsets, and lives. The Center hosts more than a dozen events annually that are free and open to the public, and furthers its special mission to serve women by offering events that inspire and motivate women entrepreneurs. Located within the Feliciano School of Business, the Center is a resource for any student on campus, and has a track record of partnering with many departments and entities on campus. The Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship currently offers an undergraduate certificate in entrepreneurship and a minor in entrepreneurship. An entrepreneurship concentration is anticipated beginning in Fall 2018.
The Feliciano School of Business is accredited by AACSB International at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It offers a BS in Business Administration (ten concentrations), BS in Accounting, BA in Economics, MBA (six concentrations, cohort based model), MS in Accounting, MS Business Analytics degree programs and several graduate level certificates. In fall 2015, the Feliciano School officially opened a new 143,000-square-foot, six-story, high-tech, interactive learning environment for their 3,500 undergraduate and graduate students. Among the building's many noteworthy features are a 3-D printing innovation lab, a Social Media Listening Center powered by Radian6, 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 105 full-time faculty and 35 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.
