Niagara University was founded in 1856 by the Catholic Vincentian Fathers, whose mission emphasizes practical training and excellence in service of society. NU’s traditional stone buildings and leafy green campus sits on Monteagle Ridge, overlooking the Niagara River Gorge just three miles north of the majestic Niagara Falls.  Immediately adjacent to Canada, NU’s bi-national culture is built on close proximity to major manufacturing and business centers in Buffalo and Toronto, attracting from both countries significant populations of students and faculty.  Niagara Falls also boasts an affordable cost of living almost 20% below the national average. 

 

The successful candidates must have a master’s degree in business or accounting and an undergraduate degree in accounting. A minimum of 5 years of significant professional experience and an active accounting certification (CPA, CMA, etc.) is required. Candidates should demonstrate success and excellence in teaching. In addition, success in the area of scholarly research will be required for advancement and tenure. A primary emphasis in health care administration, taxation, and/or Accounting Information Systems (AIS) is preferred, and other areas of accounting expertise will be considered. Salary and benefits are AACSB competitive.
