Starting in Spring Quarter, 2020, the Business Analytics programs at Seattle University’s Albers School of Business and Economics has an opening for an adjunct professor to teach Introduction to Business Analytics. The position will teach one section of BUAN 3210 Introduction to Business Analytics, a required course for students in the Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration in Business Analytics. The ideal candidate will be excited about teaching undergraduate students and be able to instruct students in the required course content. The class description is as follows:
Business Analytics is a combination of statistics and computing applied to topics in business. The increase in data gathering capabilities and computing power have greatly enhanced the use of data to understand the behavior and activity of consumers and businesses. To be successful, one must understand a broad range of analysis procedures and computing tools to address the wide variety of data science applications to business. The goals for this course are to develop communication strategies for analysis results, learn the theory and application of data visualization, and learn a statistical programming language (R/RStudio or Python/IDE). Communication is a core element of this course—analysis is nearly useless if it cannot be clearly communicated. We will use tools and processes to create and communicate reproducible research; from downloading, exploring and analyzing data, summarizing findings, creating professional visualizations, to developing communications (written and oral) that tell stories within the data.
Minimum of a Masters in a related field and a strong desire to teach and work with undergraduate students. Professional experience applying data visualization and using R or Python that can be brought to the classroom for students to learn and understand real-world application of the course materials.
