MSI Announces Results of the 2012 Clayton Dissertation Proposal Competition

The Marketing Science Institute (MSI) is pleased to announce the results of the 2012 Alden G. Clayton Doctoral Dissertation Proposal Competition. Started in 1984, this annual competition is intended to encourage doctoral work on topics of importance to the marketing community. Students submitted their dissertation proposals from August 2011 through July 2012, at a point when their dissertation work was no more than 50% completed.

The finalists were selected from 82 high-quality submissions. Three blind evaluations of each submission were obtained from outside academic experts. We are grateful to the 147 marketing scholars who generously contributed their time to serve as reviewers.
