    MUST’s Faculty Program

    Teach online without interrupting your full
    time career, and without any boundaries

    When you teach a course online at MUST, you will spend
    approximately 15 to 20 hours a week, which allows you
    time to continue with your current career. Plus, the
    opportunity for a diverse student population is greater
    because our students take courses from nearly
    everywhere in the world. As a result, discussions are
    open exchanges that can be expansive, meaningful and
    at the same time, intensely focused on class topics.

    Flexibility

    One of the greatest advantages of being an online
    instructor at MUST is the flexibility you'll experience. You
    can prepare your coursework anytime, day or night.

    Competitive Monetary Compensation

    MUST acknowledges its faculty's contribution in the
    development of students and therefore adequately
    compensates them monetarily.

    Increase your online proficiency

    Being a faculty member at MUST helps you sharpen
    important communication skills that will become
    increasingly important to the way we all work and live.
    You'll hone your online communication skills while
    sharing important information that transforms students'
    lives. This prepares you for the inevitability of greater
    online communication in the future.

    MUST’s Faculty Program

    Expand your own knowledge base

    You'll increase your depth of knowledge as you study
    course materials, read texts, review student research and
    facilitate class discussions. And, MUST offers a discount to
    faculty who enroll in our courses.

    Improve your communication and leadership
    skills

    Not only will these skills increase while you're presenting
    course materials and answering questions, you'll also have
    the opportunity to take MUST University's assessment and
    training programs designed to increase skills that faculty
    employ.

    Your classroom is a great place to network
    with other professionals in your field

    MUST University's courses are created specifically for
    working students. You'll find that many of your students are
    established professionals. This gives you the unique
    opportunity to not only teach professionals, but to interact
    with them on a peer-to-peer level.

    Know you're making a difference as a faculty
    member by sharing your wisdom

    You'll have the satisfaction of knowing that your students
    will be benefiting from your experience. You can take pride
    in their accomplishments as they apply your teachings in
    the real world.

    Primary responsibilities of faculty at MUST include:



    Course Content Development will be your
    major responsibility, so as to develop up-to-date
    course content to suit the needs and
    requirements of on-the-go students



    Teaching (online), demonstrating knowledge of
    adult learning theory and practices, to include --
    - learning contracts, collaborative learning, and
    active learning strategies



    Classroom Management by building an online
    community conducive to the spirit of learning
    and continuous improvement in a positive,
    learner-focused environment



    Assessing learning through feedback, coaching,
    and interpersonal skills, making a positive
    impact on learner retention and persistence



    Collaborate and work with advanced doctoral
    learners (mentor and committee work)



    Conduct Online Lectures & Webinars. You will
    be required to record lectures to be uploaded in
    the online classroom

    Once a candidate has gone through the recruitment
    process, s/he joins the team of professional and
    experienced faculty members.

    The following is a simplified version, illustrated via an
    example, of how the faculty teaches at MUST:

    Brian Theodore is an adjunct faculty member at MUST
    for Business and Management.

    Every time a student enrolls at MUST for
    Business & Management, they will have a choice
    to study from a number of faculty members,
    including Brian. If the student chooses to study
    with Brian, they will enroll for his course
    through a simple form.

    After enrollment, a student will be able to
    access course content and video lectures
    created by Brian. Also, students can reach him
    through messages and discussion forums. MCQ-
    based examination are conducted and evaluated
    automatically against pre-defined answers.

    MUST acknowledges its faculty members’ contribution
    to providing students with an exceptional academic
    experience, and rewards them accordingly.

    Every faculty member can set a price for their courses
    respectively. For the first 6 months, 100% of the course
    fee for every enrolled student in the faculty’s course
    will be earned by the faculty. So, if a faculty sets a price
    of $900/ course, and enrolls 20 students a month, s/he
    can earn $18,000 every month.

    After 6 months, a sharing ratio will be mutually decided
    by the administration and faculty for cumulative
    earning.

    Faculty Member at MUST

    4-step application process to become a faculty member
    at MUST is as follows:

    Step 1: After receiving your expression of interest (by
    phone or email) and resume, your profile will be
    evaluated by Assistant Head of Academics Department
    for eligibility

    Step 2: Short-listed candidates will be required to
    appear for an online test, assessing their experience and
    knowledge

    Step 3: Candidates who successfully complete the test
    will be interviewed by Head of Academics Department

    Step 4: Candidates who are approved by Head of
    Academics Department will be sent offer letters,
    followed by appointment letters after confirmation

    TO APPLY, PLEASE EMAIL US WITH YOUR EXPRESSION OF
    INTEREST AT dbrown@mustuniversity.com OR SPEAK TO
    OUR CONSULTANTS AT 1-888-737-6768
    There's more info after that but it isn't directly faculty related. Thoughts?

    If there is a single person with an internet connection who doesn't know what a laughable travesty MUST is, then that is a clear sign that we have not made anywhere near enough backronyms.

    Never fear, dear members and lurkers, the saga and pertinent jokes MUST continue for many, many, many years to come!

    I must have completed an online form for them (years ago?) because in addition to the email, I receive a phone call at home last night (!?!). I'm active with 7 schools now and don't want another - I just have a friend who is looking to start as an online adjunct and I was thinking of passing on to him.

    Guess not.

    I have seen the MUST jokes on here before - but they've gotten in the way of actual information.

    Wow. So the same guy kept calling and calling and calling and we just let it go to voicemail. He'd leave a nice request for a return call to discuss "Faculty Opportunities." So he called on Saturday and I decided to pick up. He said what he was calling for and I said something to the effect of: "Thanks but I'm no longer interested in..."
