Loyola University Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business seeks a visionary, collaborative, and proven leader with a record of innovation and strong management in data analytics to serve as its new Director of Analytics.

The Director is charged with helping faculty, students, and professionals to harness the power of data analytics to improve both social and business outcomes. Faculty across Quinlan and Loyola are increasingly harnessing data analytics in their curriculum and the Director will have a unique opportunity to help synchronize these initiatives. The Director will also participate in leveraging data to serve broader, transdisciplinary research goals of Quinlan and the University, including supporting research on intractable social issues such as health equity, climate change, and racial justice.

As part of these efforts, the Director will help to envision and execute the next strategic vision for the CME Group Foundation Business Analytics Lab, which strives to harness the potential of data analytics to improve decisions in fields ranging from financial services to healthcare to environmental sustainability.

Given the overwhelming evidence that diversity contributes to a robust academic environment and to higher performance—and given the specific need for the Director to closely collaborate with diverse faculty, students, staff, alumni, and partners—we seek a Director who has a proven record of valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Key responsibilities for this position include:
• Coordinating collaborative analytics research across departments and with other units at Quinlan and at Loyola.
• Supporting the analytical needs of faculty, including facilitating collaborative analytics research across departments and ensuring access to appropriate data sources.
• Collaborating with corporate partners to identify opportunities for analytics research.
• Developing a clear, compelling, transdisciplinary vision for the Lab that accounts for the impact of COVID and the need for virtual Lab opportunities for remote stakeholders.
• Hosting analytics focused gatherings, including student competitions, seminars, and workshops.
• Teaching two sections of Business Analytics and partnering with the Business Analytics core course coordinator on curriculum development.
• Supporting faculty with the integration of lab tools in the curriculum.
• Supervising the IT & Data Specialist, who provides critical leadership in managing the CME Business Analytics Lab.
