John H. Nicholson

Adjunct Associate Professor in the Pratt School of Engineering

I am the instructor for EGRMGMT 550 and 551, the Internship and the Internship Assessment and enjoy helping students develop professional and career enhancing skills. I also develop and mentor semester-long corporate-sponsored Consulting Practicums (EGRMGMT 556) for the program. With over 30 years experience at IBM and Lenovo in the areas of software, product management, and technology management, I maintain a consulting practice and have a certification in Information Systems Security (CISSP). My research interests are in the area of data analytics and I have been co-organizer and mentor for recent DataFests at Duke.
