The Executive Director will serve as a liaison between corporations and campus representatives to identify mutual interests and mutually beneficial partnerships that will lead to significant investment in research, programs, philanthropic priorities, and other projects at MU. The Executive Director will lead a large-scale and comprehensive program of cooperation with companies across industrial sectors and academic disciplines, taking overall responsibility for all phases of the relationship from prospect and proposal development, to soliciting and negotiating agreements, to managing ongoing relationships. The Executive Director will establish and maintain relationships with C-suite executives at major international companies. The Executive Director will lead a team to develop, execute, and assess a strategy aimed at creating a brand and elevating the reputation of the university as a corporate partner of first choice. The Executive Director will contribute to strategic planning and to lead planning for external engagements, typically involving considerable ambiguity, complexity, and scope.

Since 1839, and as Missouri’s only state-supported member of the Association of American Universities, the University of Missouri (MU) has been engaged in groundbreaking research and comprehensive academics that define its strength as a higher education institution. Today, MU supports 31,103 students in 300+ degree programs, including 97 undergraduate majors, 96 master’s degrees, 69 doctoral degrees, and over 70 certificates. Students work side by side with some of the world’s best faculty to advance the arts and humanities, the sciences, and the professions. At MU, scholarship and teaching are driven daily by a commitment to public service—the obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge that will improve the quality of life in the state, the nation, and the world. MU’s NCAA Division I Athletics program in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) has 550 student-athletes across 20 sports. There are 344,000 MU alumni living around the world, 185,000 of which remain in the state of Missouri, maintaining MU’s positive impact globally and locally.

MU commits to acting ethically, welcoming differences, and exchanging ideas openly. University leaders demonstrate commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion by ensuring each individual, regardless of background, experiences, and perspectives, is supported at MU. In the past eight years, the university created the Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity, hired a Chief Diversity Officer to lead the new division, and established mandatory diversity training for those responsible for hiring. As part of its student accessibility efforts, in 2021, MU invested over $167 million in student scholarships and awards, allowing nearly half of all MU students to graduate without debt.

On the heels of record retention and enrollment growth amidst unprecedented challenges facing higher education in 2020, the University of Missouri jumped 15 spots in the U.S. News & World Report list of top national universities, rising to 124 in the publication’s newest rankings of more than 380 public and private institutions. MU also moved up five spots, from No. 90 in 2020 to No. 85, among the Best Value Schools— a measure of colleges that offer the best value for students getting need-based financial aid. Additionally, the university climbed 13 spots to No. 86 among the Best Colleges for Veterans.

A bachelor's degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience and at least seven years of experience from which comparable knowledge and skills can be acquired is necessary. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to mission of University of Missouri as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.
