As part of its commitment to academic excellence, the Department of Marketing, Logistics, & Operations Management sponsors a series of workshops each semester known as the “GREEN” (Guidance for Research, Education Effectiveness and Networking) workshops. These workshops feature many important topics that will assist doctoral students in learning how to effectively teach and conduct research, and proficiently network with scholars in our field. These workshops will be facilitated by UNT faculty who are world-renowned experts in their fields, including areas of consumer behavior, marketing strategy, supply-chain management and modelling domains of marketing research.
Topics of discussions will include:
- research activities (how to generate ideas, publish in premier journals)
- pedagogy (what makes an effective teacher)
- practice (what to expect on the job market, how to handle interviews, what are different marketing academic career paths).
These workshops will be facilitated as both discussion-format and guest speakers. Speakers will be a mix of faculty and graduate students, in addition to leading scholars from other universities.
