Kim Bryce Clark (born March 20, 1949) has been the president of Brigham Young University–Idaho since 2005. Before this appointment, Clark served as Dean of the Harvard Business School (HBS) from 1995 to 2005 and as the George F. Baker Professor of Administration.
Clark matriculated at Harvard University in 1967 as a pre-med major and left after his freshman year to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in Germany. Upon his return to the U.S., he enrolled for a time at Brigham Young University. In 1971, Clark resumed his studies at Harvard, where he received B.A. (1974), MA (1977), and Ph.D. (1978) degrees in economics. Clark joined the Harvard faculty in 1978 and served as Dean of the HBS from 1995 to 2005.
As a professor at the HBS, Clark's research focused on modularity in design and the integration of technology and competition in industry evolution, particularly within the computer industry. He has published several articles in the Harvard Business Review and other peer-reviewed academic journals. A few of his papers were co-authored with former HBS associate dean and current BYU-Hawaii president Steven C. Wheelwright.

Clark has served in various leadership capacities in the LDS Church, including bishop, scoutmaster, elders quorum president, gospel doctrine teacher, and counselor in a stake mission presidency. From May 2007 to May 2014, Clark served as an area seventy in the church's Idaho Area.
