Scott Moore comes to Babson from the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, where he held the Arthur F. Thurnau Professorship—the university’s highest recognition for outstanding contributions to undergraduate teaching. He served as the Bachelor of Business Administration Faculty Program Director from 2004–2011 at the Ross School.
Moore is the author of several scholarly articles focusing on communication languages, supply chain management, and online selling mechanisms. He is the author of nearly two dozen teaching cases used in the new class he created for the BBA program. He also is active in Michigan’s entry in the online teaching space.
His current research focus is two-pronged. His technology-focused research uses evolutionary algorithms and multiagent modeling as tools to investigate business problems from supply chain management to auction design to warehouse location. His recent articles investigate auctions and posted price sales by running billions of simulated auctions. Previously, he developed a language for automating complex electronic communication and then looked at the effects of applying this technology to EDI, work flow automation, and electronic commerce. His other line of research is on the use of educational technologies to support face-to-face classes and on-site students. In 2012, he developed more than 40 lectures for an online class for on-site undergraduates and then investigated issues related to motivation, learning, and performance.
Moore earned his doctorate from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania in Decision Sciences (specialty in Information Systems), his MSM from Georgia Institute of Technology, and his BS from Furman University.
His areas of expertise include Educational Technology, Evolutionary Algorithms, Multi-agent modelling, Complexity Theory, Simulation Design, Philosophy of Science, Case Writing, Programming, and Database Design.
