Faculty Recruitment

To attract the ideal faculty to TU, the following recruitment process approaches hiring practices from a leadership perspective that balances the technical requirements. The process starts with a unique set of documents that requires critical thought including a passion statement, values statement, and leadership and teaching philosophy of potential faculty. Upon receipt of these documents, TUwill determine the appropriate alignment of these statements with TU’s principles. If there is an alignment, the prospective faculty member submits the holistic references that not only include academic references, but also professional engagements. No faculty within TU is a pure academician; all faculty will have proactive consulting engagements and businesses that enable them to test their theories and understanding of the business world in the current global environment. One key foundation for TU is to have a global faculty members that practice what they teach in the international business arena.
