Junior Faculty Consortium

Sponsored by Boeing Institute of International Business, Saint Louis

Chair: Aya Chacar (Florida International University) and JT Li (Hong Kong

Application Deadline: February 15, 2016

The Academy of International Business is organizing a Junior Faculty
Consortium, which will be held on Monday, June 27, 2016 from 9:00 am to 4:30
pm, at the AIB Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

All junior faculty active in research and teaching in international business
and strategy are invited to participate, although preference will be given
to those who have been involved in teaching and/or research in international
business and strategy for no more than three years.

The consortium is being structured to provide lots of opportunities for
interaction between junior faculty and senior scholars on the faculty panel,
and among junior faculty present in a roundtable format. There will also be
an opportunity for junior faculty to discuss their research programs or
specific research projects, with other junior and senior faculty members in
small groups.

The faculty panel for the Junior Faculty Consortium includes distinguished
international business scholars with extensive publication records and
experience (the list will be finalized and posted here soon).
