Longer-term goals could include the establishment of a center for real estate.

At the Freeman College, we recruit faculty members, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds who bring myriad viewpoints to our community, thereby facilitating the cultivation of curiosity, open-mindedness, humility, enlightened perspectives, and other valuable traits critical for learning and growth. We seek candidates who ensure respect for a wide variety of positions, raise perspectives that may not otherwise be vocalized in the classroom, and are eager to advise and mentor students from multicultural and underrepresented student groups.

The approximately 700 undergraduate students in the AACSB-accredited Freeman College of Management may choose among five highly interdisciplinary majors that combine courses in the various fields of management with offerings in the arts, humanities, natural and social sciences, and engineering. Our innovative curriculum and world-class teacher-scholars earned Freeman College a top 20 ranking in the 2023 Poets & Quants’ annual survey of undergraduate business programs. We believe that an undergraduate education that combines technical skills and deep intellectual exploration is the best preparation for thoughtful and capable leaders. Clinical faculty members must be capable of contributing to this mission through teaching, advising, and service.

  • Candidates must have either compiled a record of teaching excellence, or demonstrate potential for teaching excellence.
