Faculty Position in Creative Economy
Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management
The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University seeks nominations and applications for a tenure-track or clinical faculty member (rank open) specializing in the Creative Economy. We define the creative economy as the individual/team at the center of new ideas and content, the business and managerial systems that monetize ideas and reward the creators of those ideas, and the ecology that makes it possible for ideas to become businesses. Ideal candidates will have teaching and research interests that center on fostering creativity and innovation, and/or new business models focusing on the creation, distribution, and consumption of ideas.
Candidates must specialize in one or more of the industries that focus on monetizing creative outputs (e.g., film, video, digital media, publishing, music, marketing, advertising, design, fashion, video gaming, architecture or the performing arts) or in any industry that broadly recognizes creativity as the key driver to a competitive and vibrant business community (e.g., science and other non-arts based industries). Finally, preference will be given to candidates whose work reflects Peter Drucker’s humanistic and ethical values focused on creating and maintaining healthy organizations in which people can find meaning and a sense of purpose.
The Drucker School and CGU sit on the eastern edge of Los Angeles County. Looking west toward Pasadena, Hollywood and beyond is the epicenter of the creative industries in the U.S. Looking east and south is the Inland Empire, composed of major residential communities, retail businesses, and one of the largest logistics centers in the world. A hallmark of the Los Angeles area is its diversity in terms of both commerce and people. With over 12 million in 2010, the metropolitan area is home to large populations of Hispanics, Non-Hispanic Whites, Blacks, Asians, American Indians, and Pacific Islanders. The area is also well-known as a melting pot of different social, cultural, religious, lifestyle, and interest groups. That diversity creates great opportunities for research, and assures residents of all backgrounds, as they say in California, “a place in the sun.”
JOB QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates must qualify as Scholarly Academics, Practice Academics, or Scholarly Practitioners by 2013 AACSB Standards. This implies a doctoral degree or an equivalent record of sustained professional engagement, coupled with evidence of excellence in scholarship. In addition, the candidate must have an interest in diverse teaching approaches, students, and populations, and the ability to make their intellectual contributions accessible to experienced managers through teaching and published work. The position will include responsibility for teaching in the MBA and Executive Management programs, as well as the Arts Management and Art Business programs, so teaching excellence is a must.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Please submit curriculum vita, sample syllabi, and evidence of scholarship and effective teaching to:
CONTACT: Office of the Dean. Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University, 1021 North Dartmouth Avenue, Claremont, CA 91711
