Graduate with Honors

Graduated from Northcentral University (6 years) on July 8, 2017, in Phoenix, AZ at JW Marriott Desert Resort & Spa with 300 other doctors! My doctorate is in Business Administration Marketing. Inducted into Delta Mu Delta Business Honors Society.






THE day I defended my dissertation was March 21, 2017 @ 5:08 p.m. That was the day I became Dr. Joan Renee Cartwright. It is different for sure being Dr. Cartwright, being addressed as Dr. Cartwright, being done at Northcentral University in Arizona, online.

One of the committee members asked what I will do next. Aside from managing


this is how I feel and see my future


Teaching Public Speaking for the past year has convinced me that the classroom is my new stage.  Therefore, I am open also to teaching Business Marketing and Ethics.

Peace and Love,

Dr. Joan Cartwright


Graduation 2017


It has been 6.5 years in the making but my doctorate will be completed on December 13, 2016, and I will walk the walk on Saturday, July 8, 2017, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge, in Phoenix, AZ with other Northcentral University graduates.

My doctoral dissertation is Women in Jazz: Music Publishing and Marketing.

My Doctor of Business Administration/Marketing (DBA) will enable me to teach on a graduate level. I teach Public Speaking now at Southeastern College in West Palm Beach. I look forward to teaching business courses, hopefully, at Keiser University.

This has been a long march but I can see light at the end of the tunnel.
