Job Summary

Michigan Ross is looking for graders for the MBA Fall B core course titled "Leading People and Organizations" (see the description of the course below). The course starts on October 20; the final exam on Dec. 16. The course is fully remote and taught via Zoom. The pay is hourly.

Leading People and Organizations (MO 503) prepares you to lead high-performing, successful groups and organizations. The primary objective of this course is to develop your leadership skills. You will learn how to exhibit sound judgment in making decisions, how to motivate and influence people without relying on formal authority, and how to build and manage high-performing groups. In addition, you will learn how to be an effective negotiator, how to build and leverage social capital, and how to lead organizational change. These are the leadership skills that organizations are looking for and that you must possess in order to excel in today’s dynamic, competitive, and global marketplace.

The course incorporates a dual focus on strong analytical fundamentals (i.e., theories and concepts from behavioral and social sciences) and their concrete application to current case examples in business and beyond.

The course draws on three bases of knowledge:
• Cutting-edge research from social, industrial, and organizational psychology, sociology, economics, and organization theory;
• Business cases, film studies, experiential individual and team exercises, computer-based simulations, and self-assessments;
• Your own experiences.


  • Grading written assignments (two individual assignments and the final exam)
  • Offering written feedback to students
  • If you choose to do so, you may attend classes virtually and learn about business school teaching

Required Qualifications*

  • A graduate degree in social or applied psychology, sociology, or related fields is preferred
  • Excellent writing skills
  • Attention to detail
