The Finance Department at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) is conducting a national search for a tenure track position that will begin August 2018. MSU Denver is a comprehensive, urban institution that provides students from all walks of life and circumstances an opportunity for an education leading to a degree and a productive life. Founded in 1965, the University’s current enrollment is nearly 20,000 students.
The University’s mission is to provide a high quality, accessible, enriching education that prepares students for successful careers, post-graduate education, and life-long learning in a multicultural, global, and increasingly technological society. To fulfill its mission, MSU Denver engages and mirrors the community at large in scholarly inquiry, creative activity, and the application of knowledge.
The College of Business is one of four Colleges/Schools in the University. It houses six academic departments: Finance, Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Economics, Management and Marketing.
The Department of Finance serves almost 400 majors who can choose specialized study in either general finance or financial services. The financial services curriculum is registered with the CFP Board of Standards, and graduates may qualify (depending on their coursework) to sit for the national certification exam upon graduation.
The University is particularly interested in applicants who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for under-represented groups.
