Terms of Participation

Then Doctoral students who have completed their degrees in 2011 are welcome to apply. The institution granting the applicant's PhD must be located in Europe, the Middle East, or Africa. The applicant's own nationality has no influence on eligibility.

Doctoral students are eligible for the EMAC McKinsey Marketing Dissertation Award – whether their dissertations have been published or not. In other words, publication is not necessary, but also does not represent a disadvantage to any entrant.

Other conditions:

Employees (as of January 31 of each award year) of the sponsoring organizations and their relatives are not eligible to participate. However, former employees are not precluded from participating.

To be eligible for consideration, all application materials must reach the EMAC before or on January 31, 2012.

No individual can apply for the award more than once or submit more than one topic for consideration.

Judges decision is final, and entrants have no legal recourse.
