Description

The Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Davis, seeks temporary instructors to teach one or more Online Management/Organizational Behavior courses for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Course Name:
MGV 230V - Essentials of Quantitative Analysis and Business Storytelling

Course Description:
Quantitative analysis and business storytelling through practical quantitative frameworks, descriptive procedures and real life case studies.

Course Name:
MGV 246V - Negotiation in Organizations

Course Description:
This course is designed to help students develop the ability to effectively negotiate in a competitive business environment. It focuses on negotiation skill-building in the areas of individual conflict management, team management, performance appraisal, corporate impression management and inter-organizational project management. The course will be taught largely through in-class simulations to provide an opportunity for experiential learning. The simulations will also allow students to develop a personal style of negotiation by discovering what works best for them in different situations.

Instructors will hold 10 live online sessions, one per week in a 10-week quarter, reviewing and expanding upon material presented to students in a pre-recorded format. Instructors also have responsibility for course grading. The most important requirements for the position are a strong understanding of MBA-level management concepts, and a fast and stable internet connection.”

Please note that throughout the review, you may be asked to submit teaching evaluations or give a sample lecture to demonstrate your ability to teach.

This position has no closing date and, as such, will remain open until filled. However, the Committee expects that an initial consideration of candidates' applications will be completed no later than July 31, 2019.
