About the University

Founded in 1871, the University of Arkansas is a land grant institution, classified by the Carnegie Foundation among the nation’s top 2 percent of universities with the highest level of research activity. The University of Arkansas works to advance Arkansas and build a better world through education, research and outreach by providing transformational opportunities and skills, promoting an inclusive and diverse culture and climate, and nurturing creativity, discovery and the spread of new ideas and innovations. Ten colleges and schools serve more than 27,600 students with 200+ academic programs. U of A students earn nationally competitive awards at an impressive rate and represent all 50 states and 120 countries.

The University of Arkansas campus is located in Fayetteville, a welcoming community ranked as one of the best places to live in the U.S. The growing region surrounding Fayetteville is home to numerous Fortune 500 companies and one of the nation’s strongest economies. Northwest Arkansas is also quickly gaining a national reputation for its focus on the arts and overall quality of life. Arkansas is a natural wonder of forests, mountains and lakes framed by picturesque rivers and streams. Some of the best outdoor amenities and most spectacular hiking trails are a short drive from campus.

As an employer, the University of Arkansas offers a vibrant work environment and a workplace culture that promotes a healthy work-life balance.

About the College/Department

The Department of Management is currently comprised of faculty in all areas of management. In spring of 2020, the department will be transformed into two separate departments – one focusing on human resource management and organizational behavior, and the other focusing on strategy, entrepreneurship, and venture innovation. As the scope of the department has grown over time it has become apparent that moving to this new structure will benefit us as we engage stakeholders and develop new and innovative curricula at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The current position will be an additional tenure-track line in the new Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Venture Innovation Department. The tenure track faculty who will reside in this department include: Vikas Anand, Michael Cummings, Alan Ellstrand, Jonathan Johnson, Carol Reeves, Jason Ridge, and Dan Worrell. Our faculty have consistently published in top journals including the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Organization Science, and Strategic Management Journal in addition to a number of other top outlets. In addition, our faculty have received best paper awards from journals and conferences, have obtained large research grants from public and corporate sponsors, and serve in editorial positions of top journals. Our faculty have also won a number of teaching awards at the college and university levels. We also have a strong doctoral program with our students being placed in Research I universities. The Walton College offers new faculty a competitive teaching load and a very supportive environment for conducting research targeted at top tier journals. Information about the department is available at: http://waltoncollege.uark.edu/mgmt/.

The Sam M. Walton College of Business, founded at the University of Arkansas in 1926 and accredited by AACSB International since 1931, has been ranked as a top 30 public business school for 15 years in a row by U.S. News & World Report. U.S. News currently ranks Walton College 27th. Four Walton College graduates serve as CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and nearly 30 Walton alumni occupy executive offices at Fortune 500 companies. In 1998, the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation gave the Walton College an endowment of $50 million, at that time the single largest up-front cash gift to a business school.

The Walton College is one of the fastest growing colleges in the nation, with a Fall 2018 enrollment of over 6,000 undergraduate and over 300 graduate students. The University of Arkansas is in the midst of Campaign Arkansas, a fund-raising effort that is more than 85% of the way to its $1.25 billion goal. Campaign funds in the past have gone to establish several scholarships, endowed professorships and chairs, summer research support, and to install state of the art classroom technology in the Walton College. Recent fund-raising efforts have resulted in the establishment of the McMillon Innovation Studio, with a generous gift from Walmart CEO Doug McMillon and his wife Shelley, and the Brewer Family Entrepreneurship Hub, an interdisciplinary collaboration venue, co-working space and training space for early stage entrepreneurs in Northwest Arkansas. Entrepreneurship is a central pillar of the College’s strategic plan and has strong support from the surrounding corporate and entrepreneurial ecosystem. The formation of the new SEVI department is a reflection of those priorities.

The college is located on a four-building business campus including the Business Building, housing most undergraduate and Ph.D. education, Willard Walker Hall, home of our graduate programs, the Donald W. Reynolds Center for Enterprise Development and the J.B. Hunt Transport Center for Academic Excellence, site of our state-of-the-art behavioral research lab.
