A rewarding experience

Students’ focus group practices in class reminded me of the previous semesters, working with students on the research projects of their interest. Now, some of these students have stepped further into this area… Happy for them!

Let me share with you Quirk’s annual Corporate Researcher Report – a close look at marketing researchers and analysts’ world. Are you curious about their pain points in managing and conducting MR? How about some new methods in the field? What’s next? It may take sometime to realize that, it is indeed a rewarding experience, being an analyst and a researcher. Find more about MR.

Your decisions, your research topics

After two week’s efforts on research topic selection and class discussions, here are your decisions on research topics. Each of student in MKTG 3650 Research class will develop an individual project on the topics you’ve carefully chosen.  Large variety of topics are covered in Fall 2013 class, with half of you working on a specific physical product, and the other half will develop study for student clubs and organizations, campus business or other Community non-profit organizations. Good job, everyone! Keep your passion on these topics, all the semester!

Behavioral research, research topics, marketing research, otterbein

Behavioral research topics from Fall 2013 class.

Topic, topic, topic!

Research class students, I know you are figuring out what to work on in your research project, ever since we talked about research in the first class.

Got any ideas now, or wait for any inspiration, idea or intuition? Do some exploratory research, look around you, explore some data, and think about how to make these possible management questions into research questions. You have about ten days to work on it and I will ask each of you for one or two (specific) research topics. Each will have one unique, distinct individual research topic to develop. Expect to see how you turn these ideas into a 20-page research report 🙂
