The Academy of International Business is organizing a Doctoral Consortium, which will be held in person in Warsaw, Poland on 6 July 2023.
The Consortium will provide a unique setting for doctoral students to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges and opportunities of conducting international business research and building a successful academic career in this field, and to broaden their professional networks. The format of the Consortium will facilitate a constructive and supportive discussion among the doctoral students and the participating faculty on conducting high quality international business research, managing the dissertation stage and the job search process, and successful entry into the academic career. In addition, students will receive concrete feedback on their individual current research projects as well as ideas and guidance for their future research agenda.
The most suitable candidates for the Consortium are Ph.D. students in international business who have completed their course work, are in the dissertation stage of their programs, and have a relatively clear idea about their dissertation research. While all such candidates will be considered, preference will be given to those who have defended their dissertation proposals.
Selection criteria will also include research potential of the dissertation topic and contribution to the disciplinary and geographical diversity of representation. In order to make the consortium an effective exchange forum, we will be restricting the number of participants to 40 and will emphasize quality and diversity in the selection.
The faculty panel of the 2023 Doctoral Consortium will include a number of accomplished international business scholars worldwide who have an extensive publication record, have served as editors or are members of the editorial boards of leading academic journals, have won numerous research awards, and have substantial experience supervising doctoral students.
Due to the kind support of AIB members, a limited number of travel grants are available for students in need of financial support to attend the Consortium. If you would like to apply for one of these travel stipends, please check the AIB 2023 Doctoral Student Travel Stipends page for further instructions.
