Who Went Where (WWW) – Results



The results for the 2019 WWW survey are out! Find more details in the 2019 WWW Final Report.

For the last 15 years, the AMA DocSIG has surveyed students who are in the job-seeking stage of their doctoral programs. This year we encouraged all candidates who were on the job market regardless of the current status of their job search process to participate in this survey. Based on their responses, we compile a report that describes the current job market. Reports from 2003 through 2018 can be downloaded from the AMA DocSIG website (docsig.org). Survey participation is solicited via repeated recruitment announcements to the ACR, AMA DocSIG, ELMAR  listservs, and doctoral program coordinators. Schools not contacted should send the name and email address of their marketing department doctoral program coordinator to Christina Kuchmaner, cperry6@kent.edu. This survey was designed and administered by Christina Kuchmaner and Iman Raoofpanah from Kent State University. We would also like to thank our volunteer review team for their feedback and suggestions as we continue to improve the WWW survey and report.

The Who Went Where report is a highly anticipated document that AMA DocSIG is proud to present. To check out previous reports, please see below.
