BSAN 111 - Intro to Business Analytics STAT 301 - Business Statistics SPTB 345 - Sport Business Analytics STAT 440 - Forecasting STAT 460 - Experimental Design Minor in Applied Statistics

This website supports the courses of Dr. John Rasp, Associate Professor in the School of Business Administration at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.

The Stetson campus largely escaped damage during Hurricane Irma. However, much of the campus continues to be without power. We hope to be able to resume undergraduate classes on Monday, September 18. I have updated this website to reflect the change in schedule brought about by our "bonus fall break."

I am teaching four classes during the Fall Semester of 2017.

  • Two sections of STAT 301, "Business Statistics." This is the main introductory statistical methods course for business majors. We will focus on three key statistical skills: survey writing, experimenting, and model building. The course covers the foundational statistical inference tools of confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, and regression analysis.
  • One section of SPTB 345, "Sport Business Analytics." This course is a requirement for Sport Business majors. We will look at analytic tools for assessing sport performance (think: Moneyball) and for making sport business decisions.
  • One section of STAT 460, "Experimental Design and Advanced Data Analysis." This course is part of the Applied Statistics minor. It takes an advanced look at the tools of statistical inference introduced in STAT 301 (or other introductory statistical methods courses), and covers Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), a powerful tool for planning and analyzing experiments.

My office hours during the Spring Semester are:

Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.
Tuesdays, 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.
Thursdays, 2:00 to 4:00 p.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.
