Isenberg School of Management

University of Massachusetts at Amherst


The Department of Management in the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst is establishing a pool of non-tenure track part-time faculty to teach a variety of law-related courses, including Introduction to Law, contracts (including the UCC), labor and employment law, business organizations, securities law, bankruptcy, environmental law, and CPA Law.  Openings may be available to teach on-campus courses to bachelors or masters students through all Isenberg School of Management degree programs and certificates.  There may also be openings to teach courses in our online and part-time  bachelors and masters degree programs, minors, certificates and other academic offerings on campus and online in Isenberg or in business centric courses offered through the University without Walls (UWW).  Some UWW courses are delivered fully online allowing faculty to teach from anywhere with a dependable Internet connection.  Others employ a hybrid model (online and face-to-face).  For hybrid model courses, the face-to-face class sessions meet in various locations in Massachusetts including Springfield, Shrewsbury, and the greater metropolitan Boston area.  Successful candidates will have expertise or evident potential in providing quality teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate level.  A demonstrated ability to teach in both face-to-face and distance education formats is highly desirable.
