All core course faculty and many elective faculty use the services of Teaching Assistants (TAs). The duties of this position vary on the needs of the individual faculty member but may include holding review sessions, posting course materials online, grading exams and papers, conducting office hours for students, handling arrangements for guest speakers and other administrative tasks. There are no set academic requirements to become a TA. Professors select TAs based on their own criteria, so the requirements vary from professor to professor. Often, professors invite students with whom they have already taught to fill these positions and who have done well in the course.
If you have already been selected by a professor to TA for their class or if you have any questions regarding the TA appointment process, please contact the Business School TA Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Casey Granton at 212-854-5564.
