    Dear Colleagues:

    The demand for faculty is global, and business schools draw their faculty from multiple countries. Despite the global demand, the expectations criteria for career advancement is complex and divergent. The opaqueness of expectations is potentially a deterrent to new PhDs, early-career academics as well as experienced academics wishing to move from one country to another or across types of institutions. Visa and work permit regulations differ across countries, and they hinder the mobility of academics across countries. Such barriers are detrimental to developing competent, diverse faculty for enriching students' experience and research plurality. In this PDW, we offer a broad perspective of expectations from a selection of countries with extensive business and management education. Moreover, our PDW aims to offer perspective on how to manage academic careers across institutions successfully.
