AOM International Management Division Doctoral Student Consortium 2019

The International Management Division will offer a Doctoral Student Consortium at this year’s Academy of Management Meeting in Boston, MA, on Saturday, August 10th, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The Doctoral Student Consortium is designed for current PhD students with an interest in international management as either the primary or secondary field of inquiry. We welcome participants from all stages of the PhD program to attend, regardless of whether you’ve only just recently joined or are close to finishing up.

The consortium will offer both structured and informal discussion between participants and faculty panelists on research, job opportunities, and early stage career strategies. A substantial amount of time will also be set-aside for dissertation development, featuring one-on-one feedback from faculty in small groups. This is both an excellent opportunity to get valuable feedback on your work, as well as a chance to network and get to know your fellow doctoral students, as well as leading scholars in the International Management field. 

Immediately following the consortium, participants will be invited to a “Meet the Editors” between 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. This session will provide a valuable opportunity to hear directly from Editors at some of the leading journals in the field of International Management. This session will be held jointly with the IM Division Junior Faculty Consortium.
