Chair: John McIntyre, Georgia Institute of Technology

The Doctoral Consortium will focus on Ph.D. students in international business, marketing, sustainability, supply chain management, logistics, management, finance and accounting. The faculty panel will include a number of accomplished and upcoming international business scholars who have an extensive publication record, have served as editors or are members of the editorial boards of leading academic journals, and have experience in supervising doctoral students.

The consortium will provide a unique opportunity for doctoral students to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges of conducting international business research and building a successful academic career in this field, and to broaden their professional networks. The Doctoral Consortium is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the world to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges of conducting business research and building a successful academic career in their field, and to broaden their professional networks.

Consistent with the developmental mission of AIB-SE, the consortium is open for first-year Ph.D. students as well as more advanced Ph.D. students who are in the dissertation phase. Ideally, students should have a strong research idea or be close to completing a thesis proposal, and be far enough away from finishing the thesis that they can make good use of feedback received during the consortium.

The consortium will be held on Thursday, October 26, 2017 from 9:00 am to 12:00 p.m., as part of the AIB-SE conference. Although each participant will be required to register for the Annual Meeting, there are no additional fees for participating in this consortium.
