EXPLORING THE ROLE OF MENTORING IN AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS PH.D. TRAINING

Mentoring is used in many fields to prepare graduate students for a professional career. This study focuses on mentoring of Ph.D. students in agricultural economics, including the effects of mentoring on expected research output and students’' satisfaction with time spent with their major professor. The sink-or-swim mentoring method seems to create the most discord among students and also negatively influences expected research output. The student’s' gender and citizenship seem to also impact expected output.
