Founded in 1965, the University's current enrollment is nearly 23,000 students.

The University's mission is to provide a high quality, accessible, enriching education that prepares students for successful careers, post-graduate education, and life-long learning in a multicultural, global, and increasingly technological society. To fulfill its mission, MSU Denver engages and mirrors the community at large in scholarly inquiry, creative activity, and the application of knowledge.

The Department of Finance serves almost 400 majors who can choose specialized study in either general finance, financial services, or banking. The financial services curriculum is registered with CFP Board of Standards, and graduates may qualify (depending on their coursework) to sit for the national certification exam upon graduation.

This position is a one year, full-time non-tenure track position. The successful candidate will be expected to teach upper division undergraduate finance courses while engaging in meaningful professional development activities as evidenced by production of intellectual contributions to be shared with the wider academic and professional communities, as well as engaging in service activities that benefit the Department, College, and/or University.
