Assistant or Associate Professor, Marketing (998301)
Mount Royal University
Founded in 1910 and located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Mount Royal University grew into a vibrant college in the 1930s and became a mid-sized university in 2009. Mount Royal has carved out a distinct niche by offering smaller class sizes, a robust liberal education and unique undergraduate programs. Currently, more than 14,000 credit students choose from 12 bachelor degrees and 36 majors.
Mount Royal University is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut'ina and the Iyarhe Nakoda. We are situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. The traditional Blackfoot name of this place is "Mohkinstsis," which we now call the city of Calgary. The city of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation.
Mount Royal University is committed to removing barriers and fostering the inclusion of voices that have been historically underrepresented or discouraged in our society. In support of our belief that diversity in our faculty and staff enriches the work, learning and research experiences for the entire campus community, we strongly encourage members of the designated groups (women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and diverse sexual orientation and gender identities) to apply and self-identify.
In recognition of its leadership in social innovation and commitment to Indigenous education, Mount Royal University achieved AshokaU designation as a Changemaker Campus. A Changemaker Campus operates in socially and environmentally conscious ways to address local and global challenges. The designation recognizes investment in the continuous development of individuals who see the value of higher education in making the world a better place.

The BBA is primarily designed to prepare students for immediate employment upon graduation.

BBA students will have the opportunity to specialize in one of seven majors, including Accounting, Finance, General Management, Human Resources, International Business, Marketing and Supply Chain Management. We also offer a General Management major that allows students to specialize in other fields of business, including Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation.

This reimagined curriculum is designed to support organizations that require future leaders to have foundation in both creative and strategic knowledge, skills, and abilities. Students are exposed to marketing in many experiential learning settings and work with real-life clients including non-profit organizations, marketing agencies, startups and large corporations, and in-house marketing teams across a variety of industries.

New faculty are hired into one of two work patterns.

There is an option to change work patterns after tenure. This role is open to candidates in either the TSS or TS work pattern.
Applicants interested in the TSS work pattern must be committed to a scholarly research program that contributes to both academia and to the broader community.
