AIB-LAT Doctoral Student Consortium

January 22, 2015

Chair: Santiago Mingo, Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez


On January 22, 2015, the Academy of International Business, Latin American Chapter, will host a Doctoral Student Consortium as part of the AIB-LAT Annual Meeting in Santiago, Chile (for more information about the conference go to www.aiblat2015.com). The Consortium is intended for doctoral students interested in Latin American affairs who wish to develop and expand their research skills, enhance their particular research agenda, and network with like-minded students and academics in their field of study. The Consortium will facilitate constructive and supportive discussions between and among doctoral students and faculty members on a wide array of topics including but not limited to: conducting research in international business and Latin America, writing and completing successful dissertations, and transitioning into an academic career. The Consortium will also provide feedback and commentary to those students whose research and dissertations are in progress.


The Consortium’s Committee is seeking candidates who are Ph.D. students in international business (or a related field dealing with Latin American issues). While candidates in the dissertation phase of their Ph.D. programs are preferred, all candidates will be considered. In order to stimulate the exchange of ideas and provide the greatest level of commentary and guidance to students, the committee will restrict the number of participants.


The 2015 Doctoral Student Consortium faculty panel will feature a diverse group of distinguished and rising international business scholars who together boast a strong record of publications in top academic journals. The panel members have received numerous research awards, supervised doctoral students, and worked as editors or are members of editorial boards for top academic journals. (Note: the final list of panelists will be announced soon).
