The PhD Pipeline Program encourages minority undergraduates to consider pursuing a doctorate in business. On January 24, 2013, the program’s founder, Duke University business school professor Lucy J. Reuben, met with David R. Klock, dean of the College of Business at Florida International University (FIU), to thank him and the college for their support.
