Our school's mission is to " Inspire the next generation of global citizens and leaders to address the grand societal changes of our time ."

We consider ourselves to be pluralistic and host diverse areas of academic expertise and excellence. As a social science-based school committed to an inclusive approach to rigorous inquiry, we are respectful of disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary science in developing novel insights.

We are seeking business and management scholars who are willing to help lead positive societal change and are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Digital Economy as part of our substantial new growth phase.
