Bryant University is a 160-year-old private secular institution in Smithfield RI, USA and is accredited by AACSB-International and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Bryant is a student-centered institution, focused on academic excellence that prepares our students to achieve their personal best in life and in their chosen professions. We have approximately 3,500 undergraduate students who hail from 36 states and 59 countries. We also have more than 200 full- and part-time graduate students. Bryant is just 12 miles from Providence and 50 miles from Boston.
The Bryant University’s Management Department consists of 13 tenure-track faculty and 8 additional non-tenure track full-time faculty members who bring extensive business experience to the classroom. Students interested in Management can earn an undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with concentrations in Leadership and Innovation Management, Team and Project Management, or Human Resource Management. The faculty in the department also work closely with the interdisciplinary majors in International Business and Entrepreneurship, and with the Global Supply Chain Management concentration. Our faculty members are very active in research and publish in several leading journals such as the Academy of Management Annals, the Journal of Applied Psychology, the Journal of Business Ethics, the Journal of International Business Studies, the Journal of Management, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, Human Relations, the International Journal of Human Resource Management, and Strategic Management Journal, to name a few.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach in our undergraduate programs first, with graduate courses possible in future years. The first teaching assignment would likely entail multiple sections of our Principles of Management course (MGT 200) – a required class in our business core curriculum. The teaching load for tenure-track faculty is 3-3, and class sizes are capped at 35 at the undergraduate level. First year Assistant Professors teach a 2-2 load. We try our best to minimize the number of course preparations for our junior faculty.
The successful candidates will also demonstrate the potential, as their career progresses, to conduct a variety of scholarly activities that support research and teaching, e.g., building new programs, writing research grants, establishing connections with the business community, and developing new courses. As their career advances, faculty members also will be asked to engage in service activities that include designing, participating in and leading new initiatives, mentoring students, and being an active participant in departmental and institutional activities.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. or D.B.A. in Management from an AACSB-International accredited school. ABD in management with completion expected by August 1, 2024, from an AACSB accredited school will be considered. Candidates should be committed to teaching excellence, establishing a scholarly publication record consistent with AACSB standards, and serving as active members of the Bryant community. The demonstrated capacity to conduct research that speaks to both academic and managerial audiences is highly desirable. The successful candidate must be able to teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
Bryant is a private New England university with a tradition of innovation and a global vision for success. Our academic programs are distinguished by an integration of business and the arts and sciences with a global perspective.
