April Is Thesis Month On SAM! (Original Research)

Mercyhurst's graduate students in applied intelligence did some extraordinary work last year and I have been negligent in not making their theses more widely known. With this apology/explanation in mind, I have decided to make April, "Thesis Month".

My intent is to summarize and publicize as much of the good research done by our grad students over the next 30 days (or so) as I can. I will focus first on the theses where I was a reader since I know them best but I hope to shine some light on some of the student work done under the auspices of other readers as well.

In order to pique your interest, here are a few of the topics covered by the grad students last year (It should make for some interesting reading):

  • A Study Into The Size Of The World's Intelligence Industry
  • Explicit Conceptual Models: Synthesizing Divergent and Convergent Thinking
  • The Effectiveness of Multi-Criteria Intelligence Matrices In Intelligence Analysis
  • The Effect Of Labels On Analysis
  • And more!
