The Sr. Business Consultant will be responsible for a portfolio of projects at different stages of evaluation and implementation. It is likely that at any given time, they will have one major late stage project for which they will be accountable, and will have four to six early stage projects under development or evaluation. The Sr. Business Consultant will be the single point of contact with the faculty or staff champion of late stage projects and will assemble and lead the team who are involved with all aspects of the implementation of the particular projects.

The Sr. Business Consultant will play an active role in evaluating internal or external proposals, helping to determine their strategic fit with the MS priorities, and developing sufficient detail and understanding of the project to allow a clear yes/no decision to be made to implement the project.

Successful candidates will have a substantial background in quantitative methods, experience with modeling and analytic techniques across multiple data sets, and a proven ability in translating complex analyses into actionable information for executive level decision making. In addition, this role will require productive interactions with faculty and staff from many departments both within and outside the Medical School, central facility groups providing services such as space planning, design, construction, IT, scientific services, school administrators, and campus partners.

The Sr. Business Consultant will be expected to work closely with both the Sr. Manager of Data Analytics and Business Consulting and the Director of Medical School Facilities to develop an overall summary of project milestones and the resources to complete projects on time. They will be expected to solve resource issues and propose options when there are conflicts. Given the size of the MSA Operations team, the Sr. Business Consultant is expected to be adaptable and willing to take on a broad variety of additional tasks to improve operational efficiency, make or prepare presentations to internal or external groups, organize and participate on committees, and any other duties as assigned and function with a high degree of independence with minimal day-to-day supervision to deliver projects in a timely and effective manner.
