The College of Business offers graduate students assistantship positions that assist professors in research or course administration, or provides support in the COB computer lab. Returning graduate assistants who have received favorable evaluations are given first consideration for assistantship awards and remaining graduate assistantships are awarded based on GMAT score and academic achievement. Awards given are based on available funding and need and vary from semester to semester. All students who apply for a graduate assistantship may not receive one. Early application is recommended.
Graduate assistantships (GA) are typically awarded in 10 to 20 hour increments. Students must be enrolled as full-time (9 semester hours/3 classes), with at least one face-to-face class during a fall or spring semester to be eligible for a GA. Students do not have to be enrolled during summer sessions to be eligible for a GA. Students must be in good academic standing to be eligible for a GA. Students on probation or those who have not made satisfactory progress toward satisfying their program requirements (i.e., dropping one or more classes each term) will not be considered for a GA. Students must receive satisfactory performance evaluations to be considered for a GA in a following semester. GAs will be terminated for non-performance of job duties.
Teaching assistantships positions are very competitive as a limited number of positions are available. Teaching assistants are responsible for working as a member of Teams in Action to assist, co-lead and lead activities and discussions in the classroom - part of BUSI 2200 which is designed to build interpersonal communication and teamwork skills for sophomore majors in the College of Business. The positions are ideal for MBA students who are considering teaching or working in Human Resources, Training or Organizational Development in a business setting as a career path. Teaching assistants are typically expected to work 15-20 hours per week during Fall and Spring semesters and are paid about $9000 per academic year (fall and spring).
