Student completes PhD in less than three years

(3 September 2015)

Dr Mona Mourad has successfully completed her PhD, with no corrections, in 2 years and 7 months. Mona completed her PhD in Management Science and Marketing within Manchester Business School, in May 2015, whilst studying under the supervision of Dr Charles Cui.

Not only did Mona complete her PhD in exceptionally quick time but she did so during an extremely stressful period in her personal life. Her commitment to her PhD and quick completely time makes her an outstanding example to other doctoral students.

Her supervisor Dr Charles Cui said: “Although individual doctoral students have different learning approaches and life experiences, Mona demonstrated that her self-discipline, focused learning and full collaboration with me made it possible to achieve a high quality PhD within three years despite unexpected stressful situations in her personal life. Well done Dr Mourad!”

Mona is already making steps into the academic world presenting a research paper at the Academy of Marketing Science World Marketing Congress in Bari in July 2015, a few months before her PhD completion date but with Dr Mona Mourad on her delegate badge.
