    Call for Registration and Submissions

    Session Attendance – By Invitation / Pre-Registration ONLY

    Practice-oriented doctoral students face a unique set of dissertation challenges. Often seeking to either solve a specific business problem or close the theory/practice gap, the goal nonetheless centers on the creation of relevant and impactful research.

    A specially designed practice-oriented workshop will take place on August 5 during the AOM 2023 in Boston. This session will begin with an overview of the challenges practice-oriented doctoral students face across the dissertation process phases, and then will allow registrants to receive feedback on your dissertation project from experienced practice-oriented academics.

    Interested practice-oriented doctoral students are encouraged to submit a prospectus template of their doctoral dissertation work-in-progress (see submission information below).  During the session, each registrant will receive specific feedback on their submission from attending scholar-practitioners and practice-oriented university professors. The session will close with advice and guidance for all attendees on those elements presented and considered in an outstanding practice-oriented dissertation.

    Registration Process

    Registrants must be currently enrolled in a Practice-oriented Doctorate programme AND have successfully defended your thesis proposal.

    Registrants must also hold a currently valid AOM membership AND have registered to attend the Annual Meeting.

    Applicants must complete the following template to submit their application – by the submission deadline of 1 July 2023:


    NOTE: Participation in the Consortium is by invitation only, with space limited to 20 students

    • If more than 20 applications are received, participants will be selected based on the quality and the potential scholarly literature and/or practice contribution of the submission. 

    Agreement to have your paper’s topic, literature review and research methodology shared among a small group for discussion purposes by the workshop facilitators is required – no level of confidentiality will be guaranteed to participants as part of the discussion.

    If your proposal is accepted, you will receive further instructions.  There is no additional cost to attend this PDW (other than the AOM Annual Conference registration).

    PDW Proposal Submission Hard Deadline: 1 July 2023

    We look forward to hearing from you!

  • HR Division Scholarship Program

    The HR Division, with support from the Academy of Management (AOM), offers a scholarship program to ease the financial burden of members seeking to attend the Academy of Management Conference. The program provides for a limited number of scholarships to cover the conference registration fee for recipients in need, eliminating concerns about financing and reimbursement for this cost. Please note that scholarships will not cover additional conference attendance costs and cannot be applied to annual meeting registration fees that have already been paid.

    1. Have paid the annual Academy of Management membership fees for this year.
    2. Be a registered member of the HR Division at the time of application.

    After establishing eligibility based on the above two criteria, priority will be given to:


    • Applicants who have not previously received financial support from the HR Division
    • Doctorate students
    • International faculty
    • Applicants who will be participating in an HR Division sponsored session (e.g., PDW organizer, panelist, consortium attendee, discussant, paper/symposium presenter)


    To apply, complete the HR Division Scholarship form available at: https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9BtRbWgkh9NkIRM. The application deadline is June 15th, 2023.
