A secondary teaching interest and background in business strategy is welcomed. The candidate selected will be expected to teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including the Project Management certificate program.  The Department of Management offers a BS in Business Administration with concentrations in Management and Hospitality Management.  The department also supports the MBA Program teaching both required and elective management graduate courses.  As the department has a rich portfolio of programs, we seek candidates who can be effective teaching across all programs.  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 the management programs; serve on department, school, and university-level committees; advise students; and participate in curricular review and development activities.

It offers a BS in Business Administration (ten concentrations), BS in Accounting, BA in Economics, MBA (six concentrations, cohort based model), MS in Accounting 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 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students. 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.
