This committee must be composed of at least four tenure track faculty members but need not contain previous members of the student's Advisory Committee. At least two of the members of the Dissertation Committee including the Dissertation Chairperson must be from the Management Department. Moreover, at least one member of the committee must be from outside of the Management Department. In accordance with Bauer College policies, an approved dissertation Chairperson must be selected within two months of the successful completion of the specialty area examination.
