Matt Knight

Contributing Faculty
College of Management and Human Potential
Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)

Knight has been an online Dissertation Chair and Mentor for over 9 years at Walden and, including other online universities, over 13 years total. He found the role as Chair and Mentor to be very rewarding as it helps quench his thirst for learning and allows him to "pay it forward" for all the help he has received from so many others in the academic world and other realms. He also works in technology services.

Knight earned his DBA in International Business at Argosy University in Sarasota, his MBA in Management with a concentration in Economics/Finance at Plymouth (NH) State University, and his BS in Mechanical Engineering at the University of New Hampshire. His doctoral dissertation is a cross-cultural study of value dimensions in China and the United States.

Knight is a strong believer in social change, and has worked as a Scout leader helping young men grow, a Big Brother to a Little Brother in Big Brothers/Big Sisters, as a leader of a church with a proud tradition of working for social justice, and a volunteer at a homeless shelter.
