International Management Division (IM) Doctoral Student Consortium (DSC) 2020

IM Division DSC Chairs

  • Elizabeth Maitland (Management School, University of Liverpool)

The International Management Division is offering a Doctoral Student Consortium (DSC) at this year’s virtual Annual Academy of Management Meeting on Wed, August 4, 2021.

The DSC is designed for current Ph.D. students, who have an interest in international management, as either their primary or secondary field of inquiry. We welcome participants from all stages of the Ph.D. program, regardless of whether you have only just recently joined, or are close to finishing.

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

On the same day as the Consortium, participants will be invited to a “Meet the Editors” session. This session will provide an invaluable opportunity to hear directly from Editors at some of the leading journals in the field of International Management. 

Submission instructions:
