MBA Graduate Presents at Regional Conference

This May, Clay Hodges, a 2012 graduate of the MBA program at the Roanoke Valley Campus, had two opportunities to present his research, “A Quality Approach to The American Regulatory Framework,” in front of prestigious audiences: the World Conference on Quality and Improvement in Nashville, Tennessee and the Quality in the Triangle Conference at North Carolina State University.

This presentation began as a project Clay helped develop for an assignment in his Legal Environment of Business course at ANU. The project discussed the regulatory process and the Administrative Procedures Act, including enforcement and the impact of regulations on management. “If we need regulations, they need to be effective,” said Clay in regard to his presentation topic.

“It is safe to say that most people do not realize how much regulations affect their lives.”

Clay, who has experience in regulatory issues and works in quality assurance management, has continued to refine and present his research each year since graduating. He has recently expanded the presentation to include a comparison of the Administrative Procedures Act to laws, and in particular four cases that have shaped administrative law.

Clay has presented his research in front of several audiences as part of the professional development plan he follows each year. “It is safe to say that most people do not realize how much regulations affect their lives,” he stated.  

MBA graduate Clay Hodges has turned a class project into a research presentation he has had the opportunity to present in front of several audiences.
