Adjunct to teach critical thinking, writing, and business and society concepts to first-year undergraduate students
NYU Stern has recognized programs in Management Communication that deliver core foundational courses in critical thinking, analytical writing, and business communication. Undergraduate MCOM courses are placed within a social impact core curriculum as part of the Business and Society Program (BSP), integrating concepts of business sustainability, corporate responsibility, and stakeholder management.
We are currently looking to expand our pool of adjunct professors to teach our "Business and Society" course. This first-year, second-term undergraduate course, structured over 15 weeks, focuses on the interrelationships of business and society within two 75-minute classroom discussion- and exercise-based sessions and one course wide 60-minute plenary per week. Through weekly journals and analytical research papers, students examine and analyze how companies relate to societal issues, looking specifically at the interplay between market forces, society, and government. Teaching expectations include lecture- and conference-based writing instruction as well as detailed individual writing feedback.
Candidates must hold a graduate degree and be able to teach critical thinking, analytical writing, and critical engagement with topics related to business as it operates within society. Candidates are required to engage students in meaningful classroom discussion of weekly plenary speakers and required readings. Experience teaching analytical writing at the undergrad or advanced high school level is a must, as is knowledge of business practices and vocabularies, economic principles, and current events. Expertise in journalistic business writing is a plus. Degrees strongly preferred are as follows: MBA, Ph.D. Ph.D. (ABD), Masters in Journalism and/or Media Studies, and Masters in Education.
Note: For spring 2021, this course will be conducted entirely online and instructors must be physically located in the Tri-State area: NY, NJ, or CT.
Please submit a cover letter and CV describing your qualifications. If you have taught in the past, please also upload recent syllabi and teaching evaluations.
