Scott McCoy is Professor of Business Analytics at William & Mary. He earned his Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh.

Professor McCoy's current research interests are in the area of Online Advertising, Social Media, Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Social Entrepreneurship, and Teaching Assessment. His research has been presented or published (or forthcoming) in many national and international conferences and journals such as Information Systems Research (ISR), Communications for the Association of Computing Machinery (CACM), European Journal of Information Systems (EJIS), Information Systems Journal (ISJ), Journal of the Association for Information Systems (JAIS), Information and Management (I&M), and Communications of the Association for Information Systems (CAIS).

He currently teaches Business Analytics and Social Entrepreneurship. The latter focus includes traditional campus courses, as well as extended fieldwork experiences in the Dominican Republic and Cuba over Summer and Winter breaks, respectively.

Professor McCoy has traveled the world extensively, having lived in the USA, Australia, Chile, Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Ecuador. He also had extended stays in several countries, including Argentina (2009), Cuba (ongoing), Dominican Republic (ongoing), Guatemala (2012), Hungary (2010), and Mexico (2006). He has taught business courses at, and collaborated onsite with, universities in Australia, Chile, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Hungary, Mexico, and the USA.

Professor McCoy is a RPCV (Returned Peace Corps Volunteer) from the Dominican Republic. Following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in August 2005, Professor McCoy was one of 272 Peace Corps Response volunteers (formerly known in Crisis Corps) who served domestically on relief efforts in the Gulf States through an agreement with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This deployment of volunteers was the first and only time Peace Corps has served domestically. He recently (2016) sailed around the world with his family onboard the MV World Odyssey as part of Semester at Sea. His current country count (lived, worked or traveled) is 116.
