We are looking for a few teaching assistants for an exciting MBA data science class that will be offered during the winter quarter of 2023 at GSB (the first lecture is on Thursday, Jan 12 2023).

Requirements:

  • Familiarity with basic machine learning and statistics concepts
  • Working knowledge of Python and Jupyter notebook environment (knowing some SQL would be a plus)
  • Very good command of English
  • Very good communication skills

Responsibilities:

  • Attending (in-person) lectures to assist the professor in answering students' possible Python/SQL questions and evaluating their work (student work on data science exercises during class time). The class has two sections and both meet on M/Th, one section is 8:15-9:35 am and the other one is 10:00-11:20 am (the first lecture is on Thursday, Jan 12)

About the course:


OIT 367: Business Intelligence from Big Data
 
The objective of this course is to analyze real-world situations where significant competitive advantage can be obtained through large-scale data analysis, with special attention to what can be done with the data and where the potential pitfalls lie. Students will be challenged to develop business-relevant questions and then solve for them by manipulating large data sets. Problems from advertising, eCommerce, finance, healthcare, marketing, and revenue management are presented. Students learn to apply software (such as Python and SQL) to data sets to create knowledge that will inform decisions. The course covers fundamentals of statistical modeling, machine learning, and data-driven decision making. Students are expected to layer these topics over an existing facility with mathematical notation, algebra, calculus, probability, and basic statistics.
