Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito
Graduate School of Management

Faculty Position in Business Analytics

Nominations and applications are invited for a tenure-track faculty member (any rank) specialized in Business Analytics, in the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University. Preference will be given to candidates whose teaching and research interests focus on evidence-based decision making supported by big data, business analytics and data mining. Specific knowledge of a core business discipline is considered a plus, as is experience in a key sector of the SoCal economy (creative industries, supply chain/logistics, healthcare, etc.).

The position will include responsibility for teaching in the MBA and Executive Management programs, and possibly the Arts Management, Arts Business and Information Systems and Technology programs. A classroom emphasis similar to the IBM Academic Initiative is envisioned (covering the concepts and tools of information management, predictive analytics and business intelligence).

Depending on research interests, an opportunity exists for the faculty member to interface with research programs and labs, such as CGU’s locational (GIS) analytics research program.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree; a strong record of scholarship; interest in diverse teaching approaches, students, and populations; and the ability to make their intellectual contributions accessible to experienced managers through teaching and published work.

Please submit curriculum vita, example syllabi, and evidence of scholarship and effective teaching to:
