Teaching

Since 2009, I have taught marketing and analytics courses to undergraduate business students, MBAs, executive education clients, and soon as part of Master's of Science in Business Analytics. I enjoy making quantitative concepts accessible to non-technical audiences, just as much as I enjoy providing guidance on softer skills to technical audiences.

For copies of syllabi, or to collaborate for a class project with my students, please e-mail me. To inquire about custom executive education programs on digital marketing or on consumer finance, contact Georgetown University's Office of Executive Custom Programs.

Consumer Analytics Certificate


I am also the Director of the MBA Certificate for Consumer Analytics & Insights at Georgetown. The certificate provides a curated list of electives for MBA students who either wish to get their "feet wet" with consumer analytics, or those who wish to hone their skills. I operate the Customer Analytics & Insight Seminar Series, offering MBA students an opportunity to learn about careers in consumer-relevant fields through moderated interviews.
