Clark matriculated at Harvard University in 1967 as a pre-med major and left after his freshman year to serve as a missionary in Germany. Upon his return to the U.S., he enrolled at Brigham Young University.

Academia

While a professor at the Harvard Business School (HBS), Clark's research focused on modularity in design and the integration of technology and competition in industry evolution—particular with respect to the computer industry. He has published several articles in the Harvard Business Review and other peer-reviewed academic journals. A few of his papers have also been co-authored with former HBS associate dean and current BYU Hawaii President Steven C. Wheelwright.
