Executive Level Job Listings



The University of Wyoming’s AACSB accredited College of Business is seeking a collaborative and forward-thinking Head of the Department of Accounting and Finance. The Accounting and Finance programs were merged into a single department in January 2017. The combined department offers undergraduate and Master’s degrees in Accounting and Finance as well as courses in the MBA program. The Accounting and Finance programs both have a long tradition of serving their respective professions, the academic community, and the state of Wyoming. The Department has 13 full-time tenure track faculty and serves over 400 undergraduate and approximately 30 graduate students; continued growth in both faculty and student enrollment is planned.

The Department Head is charged with leading the unified Department, and has overall responsibility for Departmental strategy formation and implementation, academic program quality and enhancement, maintenance of accreditation, faculty recruitment and development, and fiscal management/budgeting. The Department Head serves as an advisor to the Dean and develops strategies to promote partnerships with other academic units on campus as well as external stakeholders such as employers, the College of Business Advisory board, professional Accounting and Finance associations, and the State of Wyoming. The Department Head is expected to further enhance the academic quality and reputation of the programs in the professional finance and accounting communities. The Department Head is also responsible for growing and expanding academic programs to include on-line degree and professional education (certificate programs and continuing professional education). While the Department Head may be called upon to teach from time to time, and will be encouraged to pursue research if so desired, the position is primarily administrative.
