Your Role

The University is looking for a Full Professor in Business Administration with a specialization in managerial accounting, financial accounting or auditing who will conduct impactful research leading to publication in premier business journals. He or she will assume an active role in curriculum planning and development at Bachelor, Master and PhD levels, deliver strong teaching and student experience in business education, and engage with Industry.

Regarding the teaching portfolio, a breadth of business knowledge is preferred as the Business Administration group is small in size and the teaching needs in the existing programmes fairly diverse. Teaching introductory and advanced courses in the Business Administration programmes will thus require flexibility and the ability to cover potentially diverse areas of business education, particularly regarding foundations of management in undergraduate core courses. The position will be tasked with redesigning the existing Bachelor programme in Management and new course development within this programme, in collaboration with the department, adjunct teachers and practitioners.
The selected candidate will be an experienced, senior business scholar with strong leadership and management competences and research focus on accounting or auditing. The selected candidate will have the ability to perform and administer high quality scientific research leading to publications in the premier journals of the discipline. The selected candidate will create increased research expertise, international visibility and joint publication opportunities for the department.

The selected candidate will also be willing to work collaboratively with both internal and external stakeholders.
