As more universities create weekend, evening, and on-line master’s programs in business (MBA) in the United States, the shortage for university faculty in college business schools continues to grow, especially in Information Technology, Management, and Finance. If you review the USA university job search website http://www.higheredjobs.com/, you will see that there are plenty of high paying jobs for business school faculty around the country. These jobs require instructors to publish articles, work on research projects, make presentations at professional conferences, while teaching on average of only 3 classes a semester for full time salaries. Having a doctorate degree also provides some additional income opportunities beyond a base salary. Some universities are also paying as high is $1,500 a course for part time instructors to teach a six-week on-line course in business. Faculty members in the United States also have the flexibility to develop consulting businesses or assume other full time job opportunities because they are usually only required to be on campus on 2 or 3 days a week as a full time business school faculty member.
