AIB-LAT Doctoral Student Consortium
February 18 2016

On 18 February 2016, the Academy of International Business, Latin America
Chapter will host a Doctoral Student Consortium for advanced 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 professionals in their field of
study. The Consortium will facilitate constructive and supportive
discussion between and among doctoral students and faculty members on a
wide array of topics including but not limited to: conducting research in
the international business field, writing and completing successful
dissertations, and transitioning into a professional or academic career.
The Consortium will also provide feedback and commentary to those scholars
whose dissertations are still in progress.
The Consortium committee is seeking candidates who are Ph.D. students in
international business (or a closely related field) who have completed
their coursework requirements and entered the dissertation construction
stage with a clear research task. 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. Candidates will be selected based on
the following criteria: research feasibility and potential contribution to
the discipline, geographic diversity, and strength of proposal.
The 2016 Doctoral Student Consortium faculty panel will feature a diverse
group of distinguished and rising international business scholars who
together boast a voluminous record of publications. The panel’s members
have received numerous research awards, supervised doctoral students, and
worked as editors or are members of editorial boards for top academic
journals. (Note: addendums and changes are possible).
