Biography

John Lochner has over 35 years of management consulting and information technology experience, building large scale applications for Fortune 500 companies. He was responsible for systems engineering training at Electronic Data Systems and set up the program in Europe in the mid 1980’s. He was a member of KPMG’s national IT practice doing large system project turnarounds, developed deployment practices and oversaw operations for a software start-up company, and focused a large part of his career on developing Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse solutions, including “Big Data” approaches to complex data issues.

He taught as an adjunct professor in the MBA program at Hamline from 2008 through 2016, and has been a full-time faculty member since 2016, focusing on analytics classes, teaching both our undergraduate and graduate analytics classes. He is currently the Director of the Master of Science in Business Analytics program and the MBA program.

Dr. Lochner received his doctorate from Hamline in 2018, and has an M.A. in Nonprofit Management from Hamline, an M.A. in International Management from the University of Texas, Dallas, and a B.S. in Marketing from Ohio State University.

Teaching Style

The pace of change continues to increase. The volume of data and information available to us is growing exponentially. Critical thinking skills are imperative to make sense of all this and be successful in the business world. Professor Lochner works hard to encourage students to consider multiple contexts and perspectives when examining an issue, and to be life-long learners with an ever-growing toolkit to apply to the challenge.
