VALERIE GOOD, ENTERING CLASS OF 2015
“Joining the Marketing Ph.D. program at Michigan State University allowed me the opportunity to investigate answers to challenges I observed within companies when I worked in industry. MSU offers top-notch resources including databases, software, contacts with companies, and well-published professors who offer counsel on best practices for research and publication. Required courses are designed to help students gain a deeper understanding of published literature, a strong theoretical grounding, and the ability to conduct research using the latest empirical techniques. I am thankful for the opportunities offered through the Ph.D. program in Marketing at the Broad College of Business at Michigan State University.”
TRAVIS WALKOWIAK, ENTERING CLASS OF 2014
“I am fortunate and thrilled to be a part of the Ph.D. program in marketing in the Broad College at Michigan State University. My fellow doctoral students and I benefit from undivided attention of outstanding faculty members in our Ph.D. seminars and throughout the formation, collaboration, and completion of state of the art marketing research. More specifically, the faculty’s enthusiasm toward and support of current doctoral students makes the marketing department at MSU both a positive and challenging environment, providing me with the opportunity to develop into a successful marketing researcher.”
HANIEH SARDASHTI, ENTERING CLASS OF 2013
“By joining this program, you are embarking on an exciting journey of learning with no limits. MSU’s marketing Ph.D. program is designed to turn you into an empirical researcher who knows how to answer exciting research questions. As an international student, on top of working with top notch faculty and excelling in my research, MSU’s diverse and vibrant culture also has been a major source of advantage.
BLAKE RUNNALLS, ENTERING CLASS OF 2012
“Michigan State University provides the ultimate setting to begin the journey of becoming a world-renowned business researcher. The vast amount of resources available to you as an MSU graduate student provide a plethora of opportunities to explore theories and statistical techniques that are not exclusive to the business field. By attending course and collaborating with doctoral students outside of the business school (e.g., economics, statistics, sociology, etc.), I benefit from working with researchers that not only share similar interests, but that compliment my skills with strengths from their focal field of study. Such ongoing collaboration is instrumental during my pursuit to become an expert in the marketing strategy field.”
