DBA 910: Analyzing Behavior in Organizations: Dissertation Guidelines

Working On Your Dissertation

For the most current guidelines on preparing your dissertation, check the Library page in the MYSAU Portal.  Keep in mind that these are just guidelines, and you should work closely with your dissertation committee for the final product.

To access the MYSAU Portal, click the above link, and log in with your SAU ID and password.

The dissertation guidelines are located in the "Documents" section in the middle of the screen.  Please refer to both "Guidelines for Preparing Dissertations" and "Guidelines for Publishing Dissertations".

The portal page will be updated with the most current documents so that if you don't work on your dissertation right away, you can still find the information you need.

If you cannot access the Portal, here are the dissertation guidelines:


Searching for Online Dissertations

You can search for online dissertations in the ProQuest Central "Dissertations & Theses at St. Ambrose University".
