Under the direction of the Charlotte Regional Dean & CEO and the university Chief Business Development Officer, the Business Development Officer will identify, initiate, and develop business-to-business opportunities that leverage the full portfolio of professional programs at the University. The individual in this position will lead relationship-building activities with potential corporate, higher education, non-profit, and government partners that provide opportunities for alignment with the university’s growth initiatives. The Business Development Officer will be responsible for managing on-going relationships with partners and make adjustments to existing partnerships as necessary. This position will require extensive outreach efforts and interpersonal communications, as well as strong relationship-building skills. A successful candidate will be entrepreneurial and strategic and will be adept at identifying and understanding the needs of a potential partner and determining how the university’s educational offerings can be of value to that entity. The primary focus of this position is in creating strategic partnerships along the East Coast, with a home base in Charlotte, NC. We view these corporate partnerships as a key means to achieve our student enrollment objectives at our graduate campuses.
The individual in this role must be results-driven and will have daily oversight and accountability of business development activities to meet established enrollment and revenue goals. The Business Development Officer will work very closely with regional campus staff, academic representatives, and leadership from the Northeastern University Global Network to perform ongoing assessments of the educational needs of corporations in the defined region and articulate strategies of how to successfully engage with partners. In particular, this person will be a key member of the overall recruiting team and will collaborate and coordinate their efforts with the Assistant Directors of Admissions at the regional campus and with colleagues in Boston. The individual in this role will be evaluated on quantitative measures related to prospective student, applicant, and enrollment volume; as such, the individual must be motivated to meet established goals but must not risk over-promising and under-delivering. Frequent travel to potential and existing partner sites is anticipated; while travel will largely be regional in nature, candidates should expect periodic travel on a national and global basis in order to support university partners that have a presence beyond the region.
