Three Minute Thesis Competition

 An 80,000-word thesis would take 9 hours to present. Your time limit... 3 minutes!

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an exercise that develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes in a language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. It is hosted by the Graduate School every spring semester. The 3MT® competition for 2017 will be held on Wednesday, March 8 at 4:00PM in Farmer School of Business, Room 0025.  

For 2017 there has been a significant increase in the prize money!  Additional information is available by contacting the Graduate School (gradschool@miamioh.edu).
