Subject: Looking for adjuncts




We recently moved our MBA and MHA degrees to online delivery and find that our enrollment is growing faster than expected.  Due to that growth we are considering undertaking a search for adjunct professors to teach Managerial Economics (ECON 565) and Healthcare Economics (BUS 566).  The MBA Program has been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and we are considering seeking accreditation for the MHA. The upshot of this accreditation is that we need adjuncts who have their PhD in hand; our Dean is very emphatic about this. As this is an online class, the adjunct may teach from anywhere.


Should we receive funding, contracts could be awarded as early as this coming spring, especially for the Managerial Economics class; each class will pay $2,400.


Details of the classes:



I would welcome any and all expressions of interest in this type of an adjunct position from anyone holding a PhD in Economics (or Interdisciplinary Studies with the coordinating field in Economics).
