Nottingham University Business School (NUBS) is a global leader in business education, shaping the future of responsible business and management in an interconnected world. We aspire to deliver an unparalleled learning experience that transforms our students into visionary leaders and change-makers. 

We are seeking to appoint an exceptional candidate with the drive, vision, and strategic skills to lead the development of the school’s capability and reputation in the executive education field.   

This senior and high-profile role presents an exciting opportunity for an outstanding candidate, with credibility in both the academic and business communities, to make an impact through innovative, visionary, and strategic leadership.  

Applicants must have a strong track record of leadership in the design, development, and delivery of executive programmes.  The successful candidate must be commercially astute and have a demonstrable record of delivering results to meet business targets.  A strong network of corporate connections is essential, including the entrepreneurial flair to identify and promote new business opportunities.  We seek to appoint a Director of Executive Education/Professor of Practice who will help the school deliver this goal.  

The role will report directly to the Associate Dean (External Engagement).   

With campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia, NUBS is globally accredited by AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. For more information about Nottingham University Business School, please see 

We welcome applications from candidates with a good honours degree or equivalent professional qualifications or experience, together with a distinguished record of professional achievement in a commercial or public sector organisation. Other qualities include a high-level analytical capability to facilitate conceptual thinking, innovation, and creativity, together with evidence of the ability to transfer external experience into excellent teaching or mentoring (for example, through a record of previous teaching and/or engaging in a group setting and/or mentoring and coaching).  

Applications from those with previous experience of operating at the interface of academia and practice would be particularly welcomed. It is not a requirement that successful candidates will have been or plan to be research active. However, applications from those with active research interests are also encouraged. It is more important that applicants can inspire all of those that they teach and/or mentor and can provide an excellent bridge between academia and practice. 

This is a permanent, part-time post (18.12 hours per week).
