STAT 997: Research Activity for PhD Student in STAT
PhD candidates in Decision Sciences and MIS in their second year undertake research activity with their advisor prior to defending their dissertation proposal. This course is designated to record that activity. The student is expected to conduct all major numerical studies and provide all theoretical support for their work, in the case of analytical modeling research, or to have built the model and started on the data collection, in the case of empirical research. It is expected that upon completion of this requirement, the student will make any final minor edits and submit the paper to a leading conference, preferably a referred one, by the end of the summer quarter.
