Joplin said, “I am very excited to be a part of the inaugural class of OSU’s Executive PhD program. This is a great opportunity for me to perform research that will be invaluable to my company. As our organization increases its business in Asia and Europe it will be even more important for us to develop a global strategy that is supported by data-driven decision making. Oklahoma State University has outstanding faculty and is well known for preparing business leaders for the challenges of the future. I am very fortunate that our CEO at R L Hudson & Company recognizes the value that the Executive PhD can provide to our company and encourages me in my research. I look forward to working with the others in my class over the next three years, and like iron sharpening iron, mutually benefitting from our shared experiences and research.”
