Goizueta Business School’s Executive MBA Program will host an open house Sept. 15.
Representatives of the Executive MBA Program are schedule to speak as are members of the admissions department, alumni and current students of both EMBA programs. Associate Professor of Decision & Information Analysis Steve Stuk is also scheduled to speak.
Professor Stuk has had a long history of managing teams in applying diverse techniques to the analysis of a wide range of business and technical situations. His early work at the Georgia Tech Research Institute involved innovative application of evolving technology with state of the art spectral analysis of extensive data for use in pattern detection. This led to the work in his Ph.D. dissertation on man-in-the-loop decision support systems.
He directed all aspects of technical support, world wide, for Gould’s mini-super computer line, NPL. This included management of the field analysts, home office performance/benchmark analysts, proposal development team, computer center, and trade show support. Since leaving Gould he has merged teaching, consulting and research while at Georgia Tech and Emory.
Stuk’s research interests are focused around the application of innovative modeling techniques to real world problems. Recent activity has been application of Synthetic Neural Network to predict consumer behavior. In particular the application of Kohonen or self-organizing maps to Internet preference behavior has been developed.
Dr. Stuk’s background in military modeling and analysis and research has provided him with a unique experience and reservoir of techniques to combine for optimal results.
