Our Faculty



The IUJ campus is a small, tight-knit international community. Our professors enjoy teaching and recognize it as their first responsibility. 100% of the full-time faculty have Ph.D.’s, and all have international experience and speak fluent English. They are all quite active in business research, publishing in academic and practical journals as well as being active in consulting and professional organizations.

Our Visiting professors, from world-renowned universities with extensive business, consulting, and research experiences, contribute to enhancing the teaching environment at the business school. In addition, we also invite prominent business leaders and experienced professionals to teach specialized courses to our students in both MBA and E-Business Management Programs.
