AMA Transitions Guide: Navigating the Progression from Doctoral Student to Marketing Professor

The Doctoral Student Special Interest Group (DocSIG), in conjunction with the American Marketing Association, is pleased to present The AMA Transitions Guide: Navigating the Progression from Doctoral Student to Marketing Professor. This document is meant to serve as an official, comprehensive guide for marketing doctoral students as they transition from student life to professor life. It contains information that is relevant to the job search, interviewing process, and transitioning to life as a new professor, among other topics.

The creation of this would not be possible without the dedication of many parties and individuals. DocSIG would like to thank the professors, each of whom coauthored a section of this guide:
