      Hi all,

      This role is slightly more PM + data mining focused, but I figured this
      role might appeal to some of you. I think it's a pretty unique opportunity,
      especially for someone looking for more experience in data mining and
      customer analytics.


      The Wharton Customer Analytics Initiative is looking for a Project Manager
      with SQL skills� aka: YOU!

      An IT-skilled job with a non-IT title, this is a great opportunity for
      mid-level PM who's looking to branch out into a new space, or explore a new
      skill set.

      programs in customer analytics, interfacing closely with faculty and
      doctoral students as well as the corporate partners who sponsor them. The

      timelines and facilitating research projects, including meeting with
      corporate partners to understand available data sets, preparing data sets
      so that they are accessible to external scholars, creating reports for
      corporate partners, and coordinating research meetings, with support and
      guidance from the Research Director. The job will also give the candidate
      broad exposure to customer analytics functions at some of the world's
      leading companies and will introduce the candidate to the academic research
