This website supports the courses of Dr. John Rasp, Associate Professor in the
School of Business Administration at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.
I am teaching four classes during the Spring Semester of 2017.
- One section of BSAN 111, "Introduction to Business
Analytics." This is a new course this year. Nominally, it combines two previous half-unit classes,
BSAN 101 (which covered spreadsheet use) and STAT 201 (basic statistical tools). In practice, however,
the course should provide strong linkages between the two subfields and produce a high level of
student expertise in using computing technology to analyze real-world data.
- Two sections of STAT 201, "Introduction to Business
Statistics." This is a half-unit course that introduces foundational statistical concepts. It is required
of all business majors. It is intended to prepare students to take the main business statistics course
(STAT 301). More importantly, it is intended to build quantitative literacy and quantitative competency.
- One section of STAT 440, "Forecasting." This course
is part of the Applied Statistics minor and can also be used as an elective
course in the Finance major. The course focuses primarily on regression modeling of data.
My office hours during the Spring Semester are:
Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.
Thursdays, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
I hold my scheduled office hours in the first-floor lobby of the Lynn Business Center.
Appointments are not needed or accepted during these times — just drop by. Feel free to join in
the discussion if others are already there. I am also available in my "official" office
(526A in LBC) during much of the rest of the day. If office hours are not convenient, I am willing
to schedule appointments as needed.
