The minimum required to be hired to teach as a contract lecturer (part-time instructor) is a Masters Degree in Business. However, we are not looking for just the minimum requirement. Other characteristics that would be important for a successful candidate to hold are as follows;

  • At least 5 years of career experience (more is always better) as a professional marketer (e.g. in brand or product management, product development, strategic marketing, marketing research, social media marketing, customer analytics, etc).
  • Communication and presentation skills are a must.
  • Ability to adapt to changing environments.
  • Willingness to bring real-world experience/examples into the classroom to help students appreciate how to apply the marketing theory.
