Monitoring student progress and detecting students who are unlikely to write a dissertation (either not motivated or not qualified) as early as possible is very important to minimize waste of both faculty and student time. Therefore, we recommend the 2 following milestones, one being only given to students with low GPAs in their major seminars:
- Qualifier exam (in early June of the 1st year): Students who have a GPA below 3.50 in their first year’s SCM seminars will be required to take this exam.
- The examination will be conducted by a committee of three or more members of the SCM faculty.
- Those required to take the qualifier will be informed by the SCM doctoral program coordinator no later than May 15 and will be given a minimum of 3 weeks time to prepare.
- Students who fail the qualifier will not receive graduate assistantships in the remaining years of their doctoral studies.
- First and second year field papers. Papers are deemed “complete” if accepted by a conference or student’s dissertation core committee.
- Comprehensive exam (after completing major seminars in SCM): The comprehensive exam will include questions from all 5 major SCM seminars (BUS 609: Sections 001-005). It will have both a written and an oral component. Taking the exam early, students will have the summer time to start working on their dissertation.
- CBAs comprehensive exam guidelines will apply.
- Dissertation proposal (in the summer of 3rd year)
- Dissertation defense (in the spring/summer of the 4th year)
