The Management Research Report (MRR)
 
The MRR is a major requirement of the MDM program. It gives students the opportunity to apply and integrate the skills and knowledge they have acquired. It also gives them the opportunity to formulate an organizational strategy that will affect substantive change within their organizations and communities. Students are assigned a faculty mentor/adviser to coach them in preparing and completing their MRRs.
 
Some of our outstanding MRRs:
 
Pannee of Thailand (MDM 2006) wrote a management research report that became the plan for the establishment of a rice farmers association in Northeast Thailand that produces organic rice and vegetables and markets the former to Europe under a fair trade label.
