John Shepard is Head and Pamplin professor of Management at Virginia Tech. His current area of specialization is Ethics in Business.
He obtained his Ph.D. in Sociology from Michigan State University, M.A. from the University of Kentucky, and B.A. from Georgetown University.
While an undergraduate at Georgetown, Jon was inspired and nurtured by his Sociology professor, Richard Scudder. His goal, in turn, has been to stimulate his students to become more active learners, and to provide them with life-long benefits from the slant on social life that sociology provides.
