|AIB-LAT 2017 Annual Meeting||Lima, Peru, March 8-10, 2017|
AIB-LAT Doctoral Student Consortium
March 8th, 2017
Chair: José Ernesto Amorós,EGADE Business School, Tecnológico de Monterrey
On March 8, 2017, the Academy of International Business, Latin America Chapter will host a Doctoral Student Consortium for advanced doctoral students interested in Latin American affairs who wish to develop and expand their research skills, enhance their particular research agenda, and network with like-minded students and professors in their field of study. The Consortium will facilitate constructive and supportive discussion between and among doctoral students and scholars on a wide array of topics including but not limited to: conducting research in the international business field, writing and completing successful dissertations, and transitioning into a professional or academic career. The Consortium will also provide feedback and commentary to whose dissertations are still in progress.
The Consortium committee is seeking candidates who are Ph.D. students in international business (or a closely related field) who have completed their coursework requirements and have entered into their dissertation construction stage. While candidates in the dissertation phase of their Ph.D. programs are preferred, all candidates will be considered. In order to stimulate the exchange of ideas and provide the greatest level of commentary and guidance to students, the committee will restrict the number of participants. Candidates will be selected based on the following criteria: research feasibility and potential contribution to the discipline, geographic diversity, and strength of proposal.
We´ll design the 2017 Doctoral Student Consortium faculty panel precisely analyzing the received proposals. The panel will be constituted by a diverse group of distinguished and rising international business scholars who together boast a voluminous record of publications. The panel members generally have received numerous research awards, supervised doctoral students, and worked as editors or are members of editorial boards for top academic journals.
