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.
