Biography

Adegoke Oke joined the W. P. Carey School of Business as an assistant professor of global management in 2006.

Okes research focuses on understanding innovation management practices in manufacturing, service, and supply chain organizations; including exploring how firms can drive innovation through internal and external stakeholders. Additionally, he is interested in exploring proactive and reactive risk mitigation strategies that firms and supply chains employ to cope with disruptions, particularly those from developing country contexts. His work has been published in peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Supply Chain Management, Journal of Operations Management, Decision Sciences, and the International Journal of Operations and Production Management.

Before joining W. P. Carey, Oke was a research fellow and lecturer in operations management at Cranfield University. He received his bachelors degree in civil engineering from Ahmadu Bello University, his MBA from the University of Wales, and his PhD from Cranfield University. Prior to a career in academia, he worked as a project manager for Shell Oil Co. for 10 years. He has consulted for various organizations including Skanska USA, Virgin Atlantic, BAT, AXA, Halifax Bank of Scotland and Royal & Sun Alliance.    

Oke is a visiting professor at Lagos Business School, Nigeria and an extra-ordinary professor at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Oke currently serves on the editorial review boards for the Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management and the Journal of Supply Chain Management, and is an associate editor for the Journal of Operations Management. He has been commended for his contributions to academia, appointed as UK AIM Scholar in 2004 and most recently winning the 2016 Huizingh Outstanding Undergraduate Teacher Award.
