The Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business hosted the 43rd American Marketing Association Sheth Foundation Doctoral Consortium at the University of Missouri earlier this month. “Consortium”, as it’s generally called, is a professional development and networking conference for Ph.D. students in marketing. Top marketing scholars from around the world attend the conference to offer advice to students in their third or fourth year of study. I was extremely fortunate to be invited to attend this year. I won’t attempt to describe the experience, but I can honestly say it qualifies as one of the highlights of my doctoral studies. If you’re interested in the topics covered at Consortium, you can view the program as a PDF. The conference organizers have also promised to post the PowerPoint slides from the presentations, which may be of interest even to students and faculty who did not attend this year.
