Kathy McConkie is Associate Director for the Jon M. Huntsman MBA program, with responsibility for ensuring a quality learning experience for the 200+ students in the full-time, on-campus MBA program and the professional, off-campus MBA programs. She is responsible for all programmatic issues, including recruitment, admission, enrollment, advising, program development and delivery, international trip development and coordination, and graduation.

Prior to joining the Huntsman School of Business in December 2006, Kathy worked for Utah State in various positions: grant specialist in the Center for Integrated BioSystems, business officer for Academic and International Affairs, and staff assistant for Continuing Education. She has loved the 20+ years that she's been at USU but gratefully acknowledges the lessons learned prior to that in her jobs as a ranch hand, department store clerk, cake decorator, donut fryer, elementary school secretary, and bank teller. Kathy strongly believes that all work is honorable and that there are valuable lessons to be learned from the people one works with.

Kathy was recognized in 2010 as the Professional Employee of the Year by the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business. She also received the USU Spring 2003 Professional Employee of the Quarter award and a Distinguished Service Award in February 2000 from the Biological and Irrigation Engineering Department. In 2008, Kathy started the Gratitude List in the Huntsman Programs and Advising Center, a weekly email that celebrates the things people are grateful for in their work and their lives. While working full-time at Utah State, Kathy graduated magna cum laude in 1993. She completed her master's degree with a 4.0 GPA in December 2011, also while working full-time.

Kathy currently serves as a member of the Huntsman School Curriculum and Scholarship Committees, as the advisor for the MBA Association (student club), and as the treasurer for the USU Professional Employees' Association. Outside of work, Kathy serves on the Board of Directors for the LCpl Michael J. Allred Scholarship Foundation, which awards scholarships to less-advantaged USU students, and on the planning committee for the Ride for the Fallen, a motorcycle charity run which raises money for scholarships and to benefit charities that serve wounded veterans and their families. She also serves as a member of Robert's Quilts, a charity which makes and donates quilts in memory of her son, Robert, who passed away in 2009. His motto, "Service - there's no higher purpose," has become their family slogan. Kathy and her husband, Carl, have three sons and five beautiful granddaughters.
