PhD, 2011

Khoi is currently assistant vice president of institutional research and analytics at Florida A&M. He previously served in a similar role at North Carolina A&T State University after earning his PhD.

When Khoi Dinh To, a native of Vietnam, decided to study in the U.S. he had no contacts here, so he looked at the U.S. News and World Report’s  annual rankings and applied to several universities. UGA was the first to offer him a place in its doctoral program and he took it. He believed that, “not only would a degree from the IHE afford me great job opportunities, but I could work with Drs. Sheila Slaughter and Jim Hearn on NSF projects, and the weather was similar to that of Saigon!”

He enjoyed the size of the IHE’s program, which “guarantees a lot of individual attention from faculty and staff and plenty of interaction outside the classroom.” 

Khoi’s graduate assistantships at the IHE were spent conducting data analysis on various NSF projects. He also spent a semester working on program evaluation in the College of Education. His dissertation, directed by Dr. James Hearn, explored faculty’s compensation, research expenditures, and time allocations influence the degree production processes of universities at the STEM field level and the departmental level.

Khoi earned a B.A. in international business from the Foreign Trade University in Saigon, and a dual MBA from the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Thailand and L’Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Paris, France. Khoi spent four years as the finance controller at the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program in Saigon, which is funded by the U.S. Department of State through the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
