MRKT 901 Doctoral Dissertation I in Marketing

To be taken after passing the qualifying comprehensive exams, this course (and the subsequent Doctoral Dissertation courses II and III) allows students to work progressively on completing each Doctoral Dissertation milestone toward the completion of the professional doctorate degree. These milestones include Committee and University approval of a Doctoral Dissertation topic, a proposal, an approved IRB application by the Gardner-Webb Institutional Review Board (if applicable), the collection and analysis of data, the preparation and approval of the final research manuscript, and the successful completion of the Doctoral Dissertation presentation. Throughout the three (or more) courses, students often work independently but are required to be in communication with the Mentor of their Doctoral Dissertation at least once a month. These courses are graded utilizing Pass (F) and Fail (F) as the grading criteria.
