In Fall 2015, NYU Shanghai and the NYU School of Professional Studies launched the American Language Institute (ALI) at NYU Shanghai to bring high-quality and rigorous English-language programs to students in China. In an effort to expand the scope of program offerings and introduce a range of professional development programs, the ALI was rebranded as NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai in Fall 2016. NYUSPS is currently recruiting for a strategically-minded and operations-oriented Director to lead this transition and expansion.
Approximate Start Date: September 1, 2017 or as soon thereafter as possible
The Director will provide leadership and vision for the delivery and expansion of noncredit professional development programs in Shanghai. The Director will conceive and oversee the implementation of courses, programs, and public events that reflect current market needs in China as well as student demand for relevant content and innovative learning modules. The Director will coordinate closely with NYU SPS to implement strategic planning, consult on marketing strategies, and conduct competitive analyses for these programs, including custom and open-enrollment professional development, global diploma programs, and online education. During both the analysis and implementation phases of noncredit program development, the Director will ensure that active collaboration and communication occurs between key stakeholders, including those at NYUSPS and NYU Shanghai.
The Director is responsible for managing the academic content, program development, operations, and staff oversight of NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai. The Director will liaise closely with NYUSPS, NYU Shanghai, and other key stakeholders to identify opportunities to grow noncredit programming, introduce new delivery formats, and hold large-scale conferences and events related to noncredit program areas. The Director will also serve as the public representative for NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai, and will accordingly cultivate strategic relationships with key industry leaders in targeted business areas to identify needs, add value to noncredit offerings, and develop new content. The Director will consult on academic planning and curriculum development and will draw from academic resources in New York as well as local content experts in China. The Director will approve continuing education program budgets as well as income and expense projections, and will manage adjunct faculty recruitment, engagement initiatives, relationship development, and program evaluation.
The NYU School of Professional Studies oversees all academic aspects of NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai, including curriculum and course content, instructor and staff recruitment, selection, training, scheduling, supervision, and marketing of programs across China. NYU Shanghai will employ the Director, support staff, and instructors for NYUSPS at NYU Shanghai. A fundamental responsibility of the Director is to work align the strategic goals of NYUSPS programs with the institutional values of NYU Shanghai.
