The Creative Component
The Creative Component provides the candidate the opportunity to develop and display communications skills through either a formal research paper or an academic thesis. The candidate must write an original, documented paper of 3,000 to 5,000 words in length on a special aspect of marketing management. Grading will be on a pass-fail basis. The candidate must submit the title and outline to be reviewed and approved by the Examiner. The research paper may be written at any time while the candidate is enrolled in the certification program. Unlike the written examinations, a candidate may prepare and submit the paper at his/her own convenience.

The subject should be one with which the candidate is familiar by virtue of employment, or one in which he/she is particularly interested or specifically qualified to write. A work-related case study would be a good choice for many candidates. It is recommended that the research paper thoroughly cover a narrow subject, rather than superficially treat a broad one. The subject matter and its composition must be original with the candidate. All secondary sources must be properly referenced. The paper will be judged on the basis of the originality of its content and on its organization, logical development, grammar, and neatness of presentation.
