Position description

The Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Davis, seeks part-time instructors to teach one or more courses in marketing and entrepreneurship for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Course Name: MGV 244 - New and Small Business Ventures
Course Description:
Student teams develop complete business plans for their own start-up ventures. The process includes: elevator pitch, business strategy, comprehensive bottoms-up financial projections, capital requirements, product differentiation, competitive, alliance, and go-to-market strategy development, investor presentation, and comprehensive written business plan.

Instructors also have responsibility for course grading. The most important requirements for the position are a strong understanding of MBA-level marketing concepts, and a fast and stable internet connection.

Positions are contingent on funding and pending administrative approval. Salary is based on ability and experience. Applicants should have an MBA or advanced coursework in marketing, entrepreneurship or related topics. Potential candidates should submit their applications online only. Please submit a vitae/Resume, cover letter, evidence of teaching ability, and contact information for three references. 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. Applications are accepted on a continuous basis for future temporary openings, so the position will remain open until filled. Only completed files will be reviewed.

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