Mormons in Business
| Peter Klein |
HBS Dean Emeritus Kim Clark is among a group of Mormon executives profiled in Jeff Benedict’s The Mormon Way of Doing Business (Warner Books, 2007). Mitt Romney’s Presidential bid has generated a surge of interest in the Mormon faith (which, despite its 170-year history, is little known to most Americans), so expect this book to do well.
Most impressive passage so far: “During the same ten-year period [1974-84] that Clark graduated from Harvard University, earned a PhD in economics, and obtained tenure status as a faculty member at HBS, he and his wife had seven children.” Wow.
