Professional Activities

Dr. Kimberly Taylor came to FIU as an Assistant Professor of Marketing, after earning Master’s and Ph.D. degrees from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.  Prior to attending the Wharton School, she earned dual bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Psychology from the University of Maryland at College Park, where she graduated Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa.  She earned tenure and promotion to Associate Professor at FIU in 2000, followed by promotion to Full Professor in 2020.  In August of 2022, she was named Chair of the Marketing & Logistics Department.

Dr. Taylor's research has been published in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Advertising Research, Journal of the Academy of Marketing Sciences, Journal of Business Research, Marketing Letters, Journal of Marketing Education, Journal of Services Marketing, Journal of Business Ethics, Psychology & Marketing, Journal of Medical Internet Research, and other publications. She has presented her research at numerous conferences and served on the editorial review boards of Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes and the Journal of Marketing Education, two leading journals in their fields.  She served as the sole representative from the College of Business on the Social and Behavioral Institutional Review Board, which reviews and approves research involving human subjects, for 14 years until Summer 2021.

Dr. Taylor is also a frequent media commentator, having participated in stories for NBC6, WSVN, HuffPost, The Sun-Sentinel, The New York Times, and Self magazine, among other local and national media.  She was also the Chair of the College of Business Faculty Council (2019-2022) and Women's Power Up Circle (2017 - 2022).

Dr. Taylor created both the “Marketing Yourself” and the “Decision Making and Negotiations” undergraduate classes at FIU, and her graduate-level Negotiations course is an award-winning elective, currently offered in the Online and Flex MBA, Master of International Business and Master’s in Logistics programs.  Throughout her FIU career, she has taught in the undergraduate, master’s, doctoral, and executive programs, and given numerous invited presentations to academic and corporate groups.  Professor Taylor has also worked with MentorNet (an e-mentoring program), the Honors College, the Women’s Center Mentoring Partnership, the Faculty Mentoring Project, and several student organizations.

Professor Taylor was the third woman to graduate with a Ph.D. from the Decision Sciences (now Operations, Information and Decisions) department at the Wharton School. Moreover, she was the only tenured woman in the Marketing department at FIU for fifteen years and the first woman to serve as its Chair.  In her free time, she enjoys volunteering, spending time with family, and biking in charity events.  She even completed a 100-mile ride in the Dolphins Cancer Challenge raising money for Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
