Recruitment and Retention of Business Administration and Accounting Faculty. A Report to the Legislature in Response to Assembly Bill 2023.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The recruitment and retention of faculty in business administration and accounting at the University of California (the University) and the California State University (the State University) are evaluated. An overview of education in business considers the location, type, and level of degree programs and concentrations in business-related fields in 1983-1984 at the University and the State University, and degrees awarded in business in California and the United States during 1971 through 1980. Attention is also directed to salary offers for business graduates, degrees in business awarded to nonresident aliens at the University and the State University, and salaries paid by competing institutions to faculty, by field and rank. Efforts of the University and the State University to improve faculty recruitment and retention are reviewed, and the following recommendations are discussed: improving compensation for existing faculty, developing greater flexibility to set salaries, seeking faculty with a wider range of expertise, expanding career paths and interchange of executives and academics, and increasing the supply of potential faculty. Appendices include the text of California Assembly Bill number 2023, data on business degrees conferred on women and ethnic minorities, and a list of accreditation criteria in business and engineering.
