Earlier this month we hosted our Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.
3MT is an international competition for graduate students. At more than 900 universities across more than 85 countries, graduate students present their research and its impact to panels of judges. The challenge is to present complex research material in an engaging and compelling manner, using only one slide, in three minutes or less.
Clinvest Research sponsors our 3MT competition and provides cash awards to the winners.
In addition to a cash award, the first-place finisher at our competition represents MSU at the Midwest Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) 3MT competition. The top two finishers at the MAGS competition participate in a roundtable discussion hosted by the Council of Graduate Schools.
Students have history of success
We have a strong tradition in 3MT competitions at Missouri State. A great deal of important research has been presented since we began our competition in 2016.
We also have a strong record of students succeeding beyond our campus competition. In 2017, Mecca Walker, then an MBA student at MSU, placed in the MAGS competition and participated in the Council of Graduate Schools roundtable discussion.
Student moving to next stage of competition
Our competition this year included 13 presenters from four colleges. Twenty-two community members (including three legislators, the mayor and chief executives of several area organizations) participated on the panel of judges.
This year’s first place winner was Kati Morgan who is pursuing her Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice. Kati’s project sought to determine the value of the axillary roll and its use during general anesthesia.
Kati received a cash prize and will present at the MAGS 3MT competition. She will also present to the Board of Governors at their meeting this Friday.
I hope you will join me in congratulating Kati on her success and wish her well as she represents Missouri State at the MAGS 3MT competition.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
