Expanding its focus on entrepreneurship, Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management is seeking applicants for a newly created tenure-track position in Entrepreneurship at the assistant professor rank. We expect the selected individual to join the faculty prior to the 2020-21 academic year.
Entrepreneurship is one of the central pillars of the Syracuse University and Whitman School academic strategic plans. As part of these plans, multiple new faculty positions are being created in the standalone academic department of Entrepreneurship & Emerging Enterprises (EEE). The EEE department offers degree programs in entrepreneurship at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels. Its educational programs and research productivity are consistently ranked among the best in the United States, including recently being ranked #3 globally in the TCU Entrepreneurship Research Productivity rankings. Among other accolades, the EEEprogram received the USASBE National Model Program Award in 2018. The faculty are highly research active and publish regularly in premier entrepreneurship and management journals. Faculty members also hold the Editor-in-Chief position at ETP, and editorial board positions at premier journals in the fields of entrepreneurship and management. The EEE Department houses the Institute for an Entrepreneurial Society (IES) which emphasizes research at the intersection of entrepreneurship and institutions, and the Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP), which focuses on economic, social, and environmental sustainability in value creation. There will be twelve tenure-track research faculty members, including two newly created positions. This represents one of the strongest entrepreneurship research environments in the world. Members of the current research faculty include Alejandro Amezcua, Suho Han, Mike Haynie, David Lucas, Alex McKelvie, Maria Minniti, Todd Moss, David Park, Minet Schindehutte, and Johan Wiklund.
