Louisiana State University
Dr. Andrew Schwarz joined the LSU faculty in 2003 after receiving his Ph.D. from the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston.
From a research perspective, his research fits into three broad areas:
- Emerging Technologies (including social networks, Web 2.0, and Cloud Computing)
- End user adoption of IT (including sub-themes of acceptance, adoption, and use)
- IT Management (including sub-themes of alignment, outsourcing, and governance)
From a teaching perspective, his focus on social networking is reflected in the topics he discusses while instructing his undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students on IT management topics. He is also involved in Executive Education programs both at LSU and internationally, where he has taught in universities in Paris, Austria, and Germany. Beyond the classroom, Andrew engages frequently with the business community as a consultant, having worked with organizations such as IBM and Cutter Consulting on various research initiatives.
He is also involved in service to the academic community as the Vice President of Technology for the Association for Information Systems. Additionally, he serves as an Associate Editor for the European Journal of Information Systems and a Senior Editor for The DATA BASE for Advances in Information Systems.
Prior to his career in academia, Andrew worked as a Senior Project Director at a large market research organization. His clients included SAP, Baan, and HP, as well as other Fortune 500 firms, including Kraft, Kellogg's, Ritz Carlton, Marriott, the Coca-Cola Company, and Energizer. He received his undergraduate degree in Social Psychology from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida.
He and his family attend the Chapel in the Oaks church. He is married and has two sons and a daughter on the way.
