Building an Analytics Academy (Webinar Review)

George Mount led his Building an Analytics Academy virtual presentation for our NEO STC community on February 13, 2020. As Tricia Spayer noted, “It was a whirlwind presentation. I gleaned several tips for teaching from it.”

George has an interesting background and notes that he holds a bachelor’s in economics, magna cum laude, from Hillsdale College and two master’s degrees (from Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management) in finance and information systems. George also completed a certificate in business analytics from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business as well as a Certificate of Achievement in Quantitative Methods, also from Weatherhead.

His February, 2020, presentation included the following objectives.

As an example of George’s approach, here are sample assessment questions he raised during the presentation.

Here is the slide George had on blended learning.


George covered a number of great topics and ideas in his presentation. A thank you goes out to George and all who made this presentation possible.
