NVIT and TRU in partnership are launching an Indigenous MBA cohort at the Merritt Nicola Valley Institute of Technology (NVIT) campus. The MBA is to address those First Nations Communities who are moving toward the First Nations Financial Management Act (FNFMA). First Nations leadership and communities are in the process of building their local capacity to address the requirements of FNFMA. TRU will Indigenize the MBA where applicable (e.g., Indigenous special topics courses, applied directed studies, projects, case studies, guest lectures, faculty, and course content).

The School of Business and Economics at TRU invites applications for a contract position to teach in our MBA cohort at the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology in Merritt.

Faculty members are responsible for providing quality instruction to students, ensuring student satisfaction through classroom settings according to the program objectives. Each faculty member is expected to develop lesson plans and teach materials from approved curriculum, motivate students to participate in all aspects of the educational process, evaluate progress of all registered students including a final exam/project and communicate with and prepare a written report of activities and feedback for Bob Gaglardi School of Business and Economics.

This posting is for the following MBA course:  NVIT Assignment – BUSN 6910 Special Topics: Community Project (3 credits)

The overall goal of the community project for NVIT/TRU MBA students is to provide learners with an opportunity to collaboratively integrate knowledge they learned in their degree program to support a business or community group in solving a problem or leveraging an opportunity. Students will work collaboratively to identify a business or community organization with a business-related issue, will apply MBA concepts to diagnose and prescribe solutions and will develop and deliver solutions to the client organization.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the final semester of the program (Fall 2023), but projects must be chosen earlier to facilitate Ethics approval. Research on human subjects requires prior approval by TRU Research Ethics Board. The lead faculty will be responsible for obtaining pre-approval. To ensure that ethics approval is valid for the specific student projects, projects must be identified in advance.

Synchronous meeting time will be scheduled between the lead faculty and student groups to support project work.

The course runs August 5, 2023 to December 15, 2023.

Compensation is covered by Collective Agreement Article 16.8 (TRU internal candidates) or Professional Services Agreement (external candidates). Qualified TRU faculty will be given the first opportunity for assignments.

Remuneration for provision of instruction = $6754.59 (current TRU sessional rate)
