Bill Amadio teaches business intelligence and other data-driven technologies for management practice. He is currently interested in applications for the healthcare sector and social media.  Past projects include work in forensics, investment banking, manufacturing and insurance.  Hands-on group projects are an important part of Dr. Amadio's teaching. "Complex decision-making requires a robust understanding of theory and concepts. I believe the best way to achieve that understanding is to work on realistic, concrete projects in a collaborative environment."
