The top-ranked, triple-crown accredited University of Auckland Business School is seeking an exceptional academic leader to spearhead the continued development of its highly successful Graduate School of Management (GSM).
This is a substantive academic appointment at professorial level with the key leadership responsibility as Director of the GSM, initially for a five year term (renewable by mutual agreement). An appointment at Associate Professor would also be considered, if an individual’s developing academic career is complemented by substantial leadership experience.
The GSM is a multi-disciplinary department within the University of Auckland Business School - one of the largest and most successful in the Australasian region with a strong reputation across the Asia-Pacific region. The exceptional faculty are characterised by their desire to make a difference to business in New Zealand and the international perspective and connections they bring and continue to foster. Applications are encouraged from individuals with a PhD and research interests in any of the disciplines taught in the GSM.
As an innovative, people-focused leader, you will be motivated by the opportunity to work collaboratively, mentor, develop and lead others to deliver high quality impactful research and a top-quality student experience. Your strategic leadership and entrepreneurial spirit will ensure the continued growth and development of our re-launched practice-based MBA, PGDip (post-experience) and Business Masters (pre-experience) programmes in addition to our suite of open enrolment and customised Executive Education programmes.
The GSM has built innovative and lasting partnerships with the business community and is in a unique position to enhance the growth, productivity and global competiveness of New Zealand enterprise. Your desire to identify and promote opportunities for industry engagement will further enhance the reputation, relevance and influence of the GSM.
Reporting to the Dean, you will have primary responsibility for the development and execution of the GSM strategy, culture, budget, and programmes that deliver high quality, relevant learning experiences that maximise employment outcomes for graduates. You will demonstrate well developed people and management skills, an understanding of business and academic environments and commitment to fostering a positive culture. This position will provide the appointee opportunity to further develop their leadership career within New Zealand’s most successful Business School. The University of Auckland’s ranking in the top 100 of the 2019 QS World Universities Ranking confirms both its status as New Zealand’s pre-eminent research-led university and its place amongst the top 1% of universities worldwide.
