"The master’s program in merchandising is challenging, exciting, and rewarding. There was never a dull moment and I am glad that I chose this program. Indeed, I would not have achieved so much without the support and encouragement from the faculty members who have made the program even more enjoyable.

"My experience at the University of North Texas was milestone of my life. My research interest has developed since undergraduate senior year of 2009 as I was awarded an honorable mention with the research entitled O.P.E.N Lotte: Sustainability Framework for Global Consumers from an international research competition held by Ministry of environment of Korea, Lotte department store and Korea Academy of Marketing Science. Since then, my passion for research awarded me with more specific career goal and life direction to become an influential professor and a scholar. Recently, a paper of mine about sustainable stewardship in consumers’ practices has been published in the International Journal of Consumer Studies, and another paper about brand experience is slated for publication in June in the Journal of Research in Interactive Marketing. Without UNT’s great resources, undergrad and grad programs and exceptional faculties, I wouldn’t have come this far. Experience at the UNT is truly my life turning point experience." - Stacy Lee (student from 2009-2011), Doctoral Student at Univrsity of Missouri
