Saudi Arabia is a country in transformation; its economy is the third fastest growing after China and India. Riyadh is a modern and vibrant city. It is attractive as the political, economic, and cultural hub of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Coast Countries. Because of the large, well-established expatriate community, English is widely spoken by service providers at retail outlets, schools, hospitals, etc. The climate in Riyadh is very comfortable during the fall and spring semesters. It is similar to what you would experience in the Southwestern part of the United States; very much like Tucson and Phoenix, AZ. There are numerous, world class education options for the children of AU faculty. The proximity of Saudi Arabia to other Middle-Eastern, European, and Asian popular travel destinations makes it an ideal location for someone that also would like to experience new cultures.

AU offers a rolling employment contract and a competitive compensation package commensurate with qualifications and experience of the candidate. It compares very well with research oriented business schools in USA. This is in addition to large number of fringe benefits that include family annual leave; medical/dental/optical/life insurances; and dependent/s schooling. Employment will require successful completion of credentials verification and background check(s) in accordance with university policies.
