ACR Dissertation Award

With the early support it provided, The Sheth Foundation was instrumental in helping fund my dissertation, which took me to India to study how foreign companies adapt to the Indian market. Not only did I manage to finish an interesting dissertation which won 3 awards, I also met my wife in India so the Sheth Foundation had a real impact on my life!

Doctoral Consortium Award

I would like to express my sincere thanks for being able to attend this year’s AMA-Sheth Foundation Doctoral Consortium. The Sheth Foundation is doing an amazing job supporting young scholars in their research careers. This is of great help especially to foreign-born scholars, such as myself, who might not have been given sufficient opportunities in their respective home countries.

Travel Stipend

The Sheth Foundation allowed me to travel to a conference overseas which directly related to my research interests. That was my first exposure to researchers from all over the world doing interesting research and it helped foster my enthusiasm for that area. I eventually wrote my dissertation in that particular area and still continue to do research on that topic today. It was great to have the ability to connect with such scholars at such an early stage in my academic career.

Travel Stipend

I attended the AIB 2017 conference in Dubai, and benefitted from the travel stipends sponsored by the Sheth Foundation. Thank you for providing me with such an opportunity. As a doctoral student, the doctoral consortium provided a great platform to present my research and get feedback from renowned scholars in the field.

Travel Stipend

The Sheth Foundation was instrumental in providing me with an opportunity during my PhD program to present my research and network with other researchers by funding travel to a major academic international conference. It allowed me to make contacts and learn about current research going on in the field of marketing, as well as receive valuable feedback to my own research.

JCR Long-Term Paper Award

It was a great honor for me to receive the JCR/Sheth Long-term Contribution Award. It was especially meaningful that it was sponsored by the Sheth Foundation inasmuch I spent the first two years of my career at a less research active university (at the time) and it was Jag Sheth who saw my potential and engineered my getting a job offer at the University of Illinois where he was then on the faculty. I stayed at the U of I for five years and it is fair to say that this position and Jag’s presence there helped launch my career. So as I approach retirement with nearly 500 publications including more than two dozen in JCR, it gives me a sense of having come full circle to receive this award.

Winter Marketing Camp

I wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful time to attend and give talk at Sheth Research Camp at U of Pittsburgh last week. That was an amazing experience, including interacting with UPitt’s marketing faculty and doctoral students for research ideas and life experience, chatting with other guest speakers and observing their talks, and simply enjoying the beautiful scene at the 7Spring Resort!

Thank you very much for your generous support to the research camp. Our discipline is so fortune to have you as a colleague and role model for us!

Deputy Associate Dean for Global DBA, Carlson School of Management, Univ. of Minnesota

The Sheth Foundation allowed me to first interact with very high level and prominent faculty from around the globe. Second funding from the Sheth Foundation provided essential financial support during my doctoral program. Not many share my unique situation during graduate school, but I was the primary provider for a spouse and four young children and the financial assistance helped me complete my program on schedule and without delay that was common for my peers.

Dear Dr. Sheth, I wanted to thank you once again for the impact you had on me at the PhD Project Conference a few days ago. Your words gave me hope and inspired me to continue to pursue my academic endeavors with effervescence. I do not know if you remember who I am (young lady with big curly hair), but I wanted to extend my deepest gratitude. May you and your family always be blessed.
