Dr. Valentine, Professor of Management

Dr. Valentine has proudly been with the CoBPA for three years and has made significant impacts on his students, the CoBPA, the research industry, and the University of North Dakota. After receiving his D.B.A. from Louisiana Tech, Dr. Valentine went on to teach at the University of Wyoming for eight years before coming to the University of North Dakota. When asked what brought him to UND he claimed, "It was a good opportunity to participate in a great department.”

Dr. Valentine is well recognized in the research field and has received various awards for his outstanding work. A large degree of his research is in the area of ethics. More specifically, Dr. Valentine has extensively covered ethical culture, ethical decision making, and ethical conduct.

Ethical decision making is a process combined of several steps, recognizing ethical issues, judgments, intentions, and behavior. Dr. Valentine has extensively researched which ethical decisions will make employees perform in an ethical manner. This research has been vastly applauded by the industry since Dr. Valentine has found a link between ethical decision making and employee’s job attitude.

Dr. Valentine enjoys researching ethics because it’s a timely topic and relevant for today’s businesses. Many unethical scandals have come out recently and Dr. Valentine believes the issues need to be addressed. Dr. Valentine has devoted significant time working on research that will ideally prevent unethical behavior in the future. “It is undeniable that people will pressure other people to do things that may not be the right thing, people aren’t perfect and make mistakes,” said Dr. Valentine.

Every company will face ethical issues on a constant basis and Dr. Valentine’s research can be utilized by almost any company. His research enhances the reputation of UND and the CoBPA, as well as the value of a degree from UND. This in turn ultimately attracts champion faculty and increases a student’s desire to major at the CoBPA.
