Revisit: Howard Dissertation Award


John A. Howard/AMA Doctoral Dissertation Award; Deadline 1 Oct 2015

The American Marketing Association Foundation is issuing the annual call from nominations for the John A. Howard/AMA Dissertation Award. Students completing the requirements for their doctoral degrees in marketing and consumer behavior-related topics between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015, are invited to enter the competition. Graduates from doctoral programs in any part of the world are invited to participate. The John A. Howard/AMA Doctoral Dissertation Endowment was established in 1992 with the initial gift from Dr. Jagdish Sheth of Emory University in honor of his advisor. The purpose of the endowment is to both assure the continuity of the program and to further promote the importance of the dissertation process. Professor Tomas Hult (Michigan State University, Eli Broad College of Business) will chair this year’s award committee.
