Faculty Positions

Excited about joining one of the most innovative institutions in higher education today? As a student-centric program, we focus on learning outcomes, small interactive class sessions, and deep engagement between faculty and students with feedback given in both directions. Because all classes are taught on our technology platform, you have complete flexibility to teach at Minerva from any geographic location. Students live and study in many global cities, so teaching days and hours often fall outside the range of a typical business day.
