DocSIG is pleased to announce that Niket Jindal, University of Texas at Austin, has been awarded the 2015 Mathew Joseph Emerging Scholar Award. The award, sponsored by Dr. Mathew Joseph, honors a doctoral student who has displayed exemplary scholarship and exhibits a bright future in the academic discipline.
“Thank you to the American Marketing Association for this recognition, to Mathew Joseph for his generosity, and to the many members of the marketing academic community who have supported my research – particularly Leigh McAlister, my advisor at the University of Texas,” said Jindal.
The faculty judges also wished to acknowledge several other promising students as honorable mentions for the award:
Mitchell Olsen, Indiana University
Valeria Stourm, University of Pennsylvania
Jacob Suher, University of Texas at Austin
Three marketing scholar judges evaluated all of the candidate submissions. The award funding and plaque will be presented at the Summer Educators’ Conference in Chicago.
“The level of scholarship being produced by some of these students is simply unreal,” says Scott Cowley, DocSIG Chair. “Their dedication and productivity should serve as a shining beacon to current and many future students in our discipline. I have an immense amount of respect for the sacrifices made by our winners in reaching these heights.”
