Detailed Job Description

The Director will manage the launch and implementation of Bentley's Online Degree Completion Program (ODCP). The (ODCP) will target working professionals who have accumulated college credit elsewhere and are now interested in earning a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Bentley University. The (ODCP) will offer one degree through a structured curriculum. The Director will report to the Deans' Council (directly supervised by the Dean of Business and Graduate School) and will work closely with both the Associate Deans of Business and Arts & Sciences.  

Additional Description of Duties:

As the (ODCP) will be launching in September, 2015, in close collaboration with academic administration and Bentley Marketing and Communications, the Director's initial responsibility will be to help develop the marketing materials and identify the appropriate marketing mechanisms for reaching the program's target audience.

The Director will have responsibility for the ongoing marketing of the program and the recruitment and retention of students to the program. This may involve on campus as well as off campus information sessions and recruitment events.

The Director will develop and manage the application process and will work collaboratively with academic administration, the Registrar's Office, Student Accounts and Student Financial Assistance as part of the process. The Director in collaboration with academic administration will be responsible for reviewing admission applications, determining rubics to evaluate prior coursework and independently rendering decisions.

As the (ODCP) offers one degree at this time and there is little flexibility in curriculum, advising new and prospective students will not focus as much on course selection but will relate more to helping students plan and navigate their way through the program.

The Director will work with the Academic Technology Center to manage communications with students and to monitor courses as they go online.

As the program matures, the Director will work with academic administration to set strategic goals, recommend and implement academic policies and manage and help resolve any student concerns.  

Position Qualifications

Master's degree with a minimum of 8-10 years of relevant work experience, within higher education required.

This position requires a creative problem solver with strong organization management and communications skill as this position will interface with many internal and external constituents.  

Bentley University is an Equal Opportunity Employer, building strength through diversity.
