Boardman has been a member of the faculty since 1977, the year he earned his PhD in finance from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to that time, he managed a hotel, was a business systems analyst for a chemical company in Texas, and earned a BA from Graceland College in Iowa and an MBA from the University of Texas at Arlington. His early research focused strictly on finance and fixed income securities. His later research has maintained its finance focus, but has also expanded to include papers about Cicero and Confucius. He has also published a book now in its seventh edition entitled, Foundations of Business Thought.
