Call for Applications

2015 Doctoral Consortium Workshop (November 12, 2015)



John McIntyre, Georgia Institute of Technology 


William Newburry, Florida International University

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2015

The Doctoral Consortium will focus on Ph.D. students in international business, marketing, sustainability, supply chain management, logistics, management, finance and accounting. The faculty panel of the 2015 Doctoral Student Consortium will include a number of accomplished and upcoming international business scholars who have an extensive publication record, have served as editors or are members of the editorial boards of leading academic journals, and have experience in supervising doctoral students.

The consortium will provide a unique opportunity for doctoral students to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges of conducting international business research and building a successful academic career in this field, and to broaden their professional networks. The Doctoral Consortium is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the world to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges of conducting business research and building a successful academic career in their field, and to broaden their professional networks.

Consistent with the developmental mission of AIB-SE, the consortium is open for first-year Ph.D. students as well as more advanced Ph.D. students who are in the dissertation phase. Ideally, students should have a strong research idea or be close to completing a thesis proposal, and be far enough away from finishing the thesis that they can make good use of feedback received during the consortium. 

The consortium will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2015.   Participants in the consortium will be transported by bus from the conference hotel  to the Savannah State campus arriving at 9:30,  following a brief tour, the consortium will begin at 10:00 until 12:30.  Participants will then join the participants of the new faculty consortium and X-Culture program for lunch provided by Savannah State.  Finally participants will be transported by bus to the conference hotel by 2:30 pm so you can participate in the afternoon special sessions and evening reception. Although each participant will be required to register for the 2014 AIB-SE Annual Meeting, there are no additional fees for participating in this consortium.

Please apply to the consortium through the AIB-SE 2014 Online Submission System.

Application Content Requirements:
