DDBA 8990 - Writing the Doctoral Study Prospectus


(4 sem. cr.) All students in the D.B.A. program engage in a final doctoral study project in which they apply the knowledge and skills gained throughout the program to a real-world problem in the field. The prospectus is a brief document that helps students organize, delineate, and make decisions regarding their doctoral study and appropriate research methodology. In this course, students design the prospectus in collaboration with program colleagues and mentorship from a course instructor. Students learn best practices for developing the prospectus and analyze past examples. Students refine their doctoral study questions and explore research methods and project types that they may incorporate into their study. Finally, students engage in the iterative process of writing the prospectus, incorporating feedback from peers and the course instructor. Ultimately, the prospectus is offered by students as a document for review for consideration by potential mentors for their doctoral study.
