The McIntire School of Commerce is consistently ranked as one of the best undergraduate business programs in the country. The School is an upper-division program at the University, meaning that all students complete two years of undergraduate coursework prior to enrolling.
This allows students to build on a liberal arts foundation while pursuing a professional business degree. Recognizing each student's unique academic and career goals, backgrounds, and talents, the McIntire Office of Undergraduate Admission strives to support and guide students toward these goals.
The McIntire Office of Undergraduate Admission is responsible for all facets of undergraduate recruitment and admission. This includes the planning and execution of information sessions and presentations with a range of 15-250 attendees; counseling and advising prospective Commerce students throughout the academic year; recruiting specialized audiences throughout the University; overseeing the internal and external undergraduate admissions processes; and engaging with a broad constituency through multiple communication methods.
The Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions actively participates in the counseling and recruitment of prospective Commerce students through a variety of methods, which include but are not limited to small group advising sessions, presentations to large audiences, strategic marketing and communication campaigns, and one-on-one academic advising. The incumbent plans and executes targeted recruitment events and supports underrepresented student populations through a variety of grants and programs. The Assistant Director will be a member of a dynamic, customer-focused Undergraduate Admissions team in a fast-paced environment with myriad constituents and demands.
The Undergraduate Admissions team seeks a thoughtful, flexible, and creative team player with knowledge of admissions best practices, experience supporting underrepresented students in a higher education setting, and a passion for creating an inclusive educational community. The incumbent must exhibit excellent oral and written communication skills, have an eye for detail while also contributing to admissions and recruitment strategy, and be solution-oriented with a focus on student development.
