International Management Division
2020 Virtual Junior Faculty Consortium (JFC)
(Deadline Extended to July 25, 2020)
The International Management Division will conduct a virtual Junior Faculty Consortium (JFC) during this year's virtual Academy of Management Meeting on Saturday, August 8, 2020 (specific time details will be updated as the virtual meeting program is developed).
The JFC is designed for junior colleagues who have defended their dissertation in the last 1-5 years and are facing the challenges of building successful academic careers in the field of International Management (IM). It will provide the unique opportunity for junior faculty to engage in conversation around the key issues of career, research, publishing, teaching, and service with leaders in our field from around the world. The senior faculty panel includes deans and administrators, editors and editorial board members, distinguished scholars and educators, as well as successful mid-career colleagues who will offer their insights and advice on these important issues. Through a combination of structured panels, round table discussions, and informal interactions, we will tackle the questions of risks and opportunities of choosing a career in IM, getting tenure, building a scholarly reputation, developing a research/publishing strategy for greater impact on the field, and maintaining a healthy balance between research, teaching, and service.
The Consortium will conclude with a "Meet-the-Editors" session where, together with the Doctoral Student Consortium, participants will hear directly from the editors of the leading journals in the field of International Management.
