Open Positions for 2015-2016 Academic Year

The Graduate School of Management has several Teaching Assistant positions open for 2015-2016.

MGT 292, MGT/P/B 258 Reader 25% Spring 2016

25% = 10 hours per week

50% = 20 hours per week


Teaching assistants are responsible for conducting discussion sections, holding office hours, and grading homework. It is TA’s responsibility to participate in regular class as well as his/her discussion section. This rule guarantees that there would be no problem in sharing in proctoring and grading exams, sharing responsibility equally among fellow TAs. You will be asked to administer midterms and finals for lecture and be asked to hold extra office hours during midterms/finals.  MGT 11B  and MGT 120 TA’s will be asked to lead 3 discussion sections, all other positions will be asked to lead 2 discussion sections.

The title Reader is given to a graduate or undergraduate student appointed for the ability to render diverse services as a “course assistant,” which will normally include the grading of student papers and examinations. A Reader will not be assigned the responsibilities of leading discussion or laboratory sections.

The Tutor works with individual students or small groups of students to assist them in their learning. Material covered may be topical in nature or related to a specific course. Tutors may keep regularly scheduled drop-in hours for student consultation and tutoring. Tutors do not grade tests, papers or other student assignments and do not work under the direct supervision of a faculty member.

Tutors are paid on an hourly basis for hours worked and recorded on their time sheet.

If you are an MPAc student, or enrolled in one of our working professional MBA programs, and you are hired as a TA, Reader, etc., you will only receive a salary, your program tuition will not be reduced. 

Additional information:
Students enrolled in self-supporting programs may be appointed in a graduate teaching or research title that is funded by extramural or self-supporting degree program funds. Appointment of students enrolled in a self-supporting graduate degree program (i.e. Working Professional or MPAc) to a teaching title in a state-supported program must be approved by Graduate Studies using a Petition for Exception to Policy (PEP).  Please contact Gabriel Coleman to send a request on your behalf.  Because students in self-supporting degree programs do not pay required University fees and tuition, they are not eligible for fee and tuition remission.  Again, these appointees will receive a salary only.  Tuition will not be reduced.
