Founded in 1906, Georgia Southern University is a Carnegie Doctoral/R2 institution with a focus on public-impact research, serving nearly 26,000 students on three beautiful campuses in Statesboro, Savannah, and Hinesville, and via a growing online program. Through our degree offerings at the associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels, Georgia Southern offers a distinctive combination of community collaboration, world-class scholarship, innovative teaching, and hands-on learning opportunities.

Within this setting, the Marketing program (BBA) at Georgia Southern is carefully designed to prepare students for successful careers within the discipline of Marketing. After taking a common core set of classes required of all business students (pre-business and junior-level business-core classes designed to expose students to all the functional areas of business) students move on to within-major marketing-specific classes that enable students to learn the principles, theory, nomenclature, and application of marketing thought that will guide them in careers as diverse as sales, retailing, advertising, business marketing, non-profit marketing, international marketing and many others. In every class, environmental scanning, critical thinking, effective communication, and international perspectives are emphasized.

•                      Commitment to engaging with best practice initiatives in instruction and pedagogy, mentoring, and curriculum design and development.

•                      Demonstrated commitment to advancing a strong and growing research and scholarship agenda and the production of research/creative activities as appropriate to the discipline.


Preferred Qualifications:

•                      University-level teaching experience in Marketing

•                      Experience teaching via web-based instruction

•                      Past business experience

•                      All work (with limited exceptions such as research and study abroad and outside activities such as grading and email correspondence) for Georgia Southern University must be completed while the employee is physically present in the state of Georgia, unless specifically authorized by the university for a specific purpose and limited period of time within current policy.

•                      Faculty are expected to contribute to the vibrant university community by engaging students, participating in events, and performing other responsibilities on-campus.
