Additionally, the ideal candidate will have proven success in a business management role, with a special focus on advising senior leadership and interdepartmental collaboration, communicating strategically and effectively across a range of platforms and media, collaborating with collegiality, trustworthiness, and the highest ethical standards. Faculty members should have experience working with a diverse base of professionals and teaching a diverse population of students.
