Richard Klink, Ph.D.
Richard R. Klink, professor of marketing, received his Ph.D. in marketing from the University of Pittsburgh. A member of Loyola's faculty for 18 years, his interest in teaching stems from his own learning experience and the impact professors had on him as a student: “I would go and meet with professors, and I thought teaching was a great profession. They created knowledge. To me, that was better than being told what to do with a set process,” he says. Dr. Klink feels strongly about the link between his classes and Loyola’s Jesuit values, particularly in service-learning courses. In addition to teaching upper-level business and marketing students, he serves as moderator for Mu Kappa Tau, the marketing honor society, and is involved with the International Marketing Study Tour, a program that takes students to countries such as Spain, Germany, and the Czech Republic as part of the business curriculum. His research interests include new product development and management with a focus on branding issues.

Marketing is a field in which you can use both sides of your brain, so to speak, as it calls for both creativity and research/analysis… Loyola is very collegial, which makes for a good, collaborative working environment.
