The Doctoral Student SIG Group (DocSIG) serves members who are
currently marketing doctoral students regardless of one's specific study area.
The goal of the DocSIG is to provide useful and relevant information that can
aid students in their study program. DocSIG was founded
through a grass-roots initiative intended to respond to the needs of marketing
students. As such, DocSIG values and seeks to facilitate the development of new
initiatives which meet the changing needs of marketing students.
DocSIG is created by and for
marketing doctoral students. The need for DocSIG arises from the needs of
doctoral students, specifically. DocSIG seeks to provide a supportive and
friendly environment for students of marketing to interact. DocSIG seeks to
provide opportunities in which students develop professional skills in the
areas of research, writing, teaching, presenting, reviewing, consulting, and
other applied activities. DocSIG seeks to provide opportunities in which
students develop relations, credentials, and competencies that aid in placement
and career development. DocSIG seeks to serve as a forum in which the personal
and professional interests of students are communicated, and if shared, pursued
with the support of the DocSIG membership. DocSIG seeks to add value to the
larger professional community of those interested in marketing studies by
aiding and advocating the development of peer networks. For more information go to our SIG site at www.docsig.org .
