The Department of Accounting and Business Law in the Quinlan School of Business at Loyola University Chicago is accepting applications for one tenure-track position in Accounting at the Senior Assistant or Associate Professor rank (subject to budgetary funding and approval) with a fall 2019 or 2020 start date.

Applicants must possess a Doctorate in Accounting from an AACSB accredited institution. Teaching responsibilities will be both at the undergraduate and MSA/MBA levels. Area of interest should include Auditing and Financial Accounting but all fields of emphasis will be considered. Required qualifications include published research in high level accounting journals, teaching excellence, and a strong commitment to service and the profession. Professional accounting certification (e.g., CPA) is required. We offer a highly competitive compensation package.

The Quinlan School of Business offers both undergraduate and master-level graduate degrees. It has some 2,100 undergraduate and 600 graduate students, and 70+ full-time faculty including both tenure-stream and clinical faculty. The Undergraduate and MSA programs are rated among the top 30 programs in the country by US News and World Report. The School is located in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast, just west of Michigan Avenue and the Water Tower, and one mile north of the Loop. Its location provides the School with close connections with the Chicago financial and business communities. The School also operates academic and executive programs in Rome, China, and Viet Nam, among other campuses.

Recent events of significance include:

  • A $40 million gift from Michael R. Quinlan, former CEO and Chairman of McDonald’s Corporation, and former Chairman of Loyola’s Board of Trustees. In honor of his gift, his leadership and his lifetime of service and generosity, Loyola’s business school was renamed the Michael R. Quinlan School of Business.
  • A $10 million gift from John and Kathy Schreiber for a new facility for the Quinlan School of Business. The structure, located on Loyola’s Water Tower Campus, is named the John and Kathy Schreiber Center.
  • The founding of Arrupe College in 2015, a two-year college of Loyola University Chicago that continues the Jesuit tradition of offering a rigorous liberal arts education to a diverse population, many of whom are the first in their family to pursue higher education.
