DMGT 753 Developing the Research Conceptual Framework and Literature Review
In this transitional DMGT course, students are introduced to the fundamental component of the dissertation, which is the conceptual framework. Students draw upon all lessons learned throughout the program to start a preliminary proposal that hones the research topic, underlying theories, fundamental literature and identify proposed research methodology. Students are mentored by the teaching faculty of the course to develop a brief prospectus, which is submitted to the student’s selected dissertation Chair and/or committee members no later than the end of the course. In addition, students are introduced to the Doctoral Management System (DMS), which is used from DMGT 754 through completion of the dissertation.
