Brooklyn College of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for an entry-level, tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Accounting, with a focus in Taxation and/or Data Analytics/Information Science and a starting date in August 2023.
The Murray Koppelman School of Business offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs through its four departments – Accounting, Business Management, Economics and Finance. The Department of Accounting has 13 full-time faculty members. Our students are recruited by the Big 4 in New York City, and a recent Big 4 CEO was an alumnus of Brooklyn College. We offer three undergraduate accounting programs, including a unique 150-hour program that meets the CPA educational requirements. We offer an M.S. in Accounting and are developing an M.S. in Taxation as well as a fourth undergraduate program. We have existing or in-development interdisciplinary programs with the other departments of the Koppelman School of Business.
Brooklyn College serves students from as many as 150 countries who speak over 100 languages and dialects and thus constitutes a vibrant microcosm of the rich diversity and energy that characterizes the borough of Brooklyn and the greater New York City area itself. Its mission features “a special commitment to educate immigrant and first-generation college students from the diverse communities that make up our city and state.” The college ethos is strongly invested in the educational and career success of our diverse students. We are committed to fostering a spirit of camaraderie and shared ideals. By accessing a first-class and affordable college education in an inclusive and nurturing intellectual milieu, our students acquire the skills, confidence, and global mindedness that allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing, unpredictable marketplace of ideas that is increasingly mindless of borders and spans cultures and vernaculars.
To this end, the college seeks faculty who are eager to engage with the diversity of our student body and have a demonstrated commitment to inclusion and heterogeneity through teaching, research and/or service. We seek to recruit and retain faculty who reflect the mosaic of our student population. Successful candidates will bring their unique creativity, sensitivity, insights and perspectives to a community that welcomes innovation and promotes excellence in scholarship and teaching. Together we will model the finest that a public urban liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies college can be for the present and future.
