The consortium will cover a number of important topics including current and future research themes in strategy, thesis development, and getting published in top journals.
Doctoral students in the proposal/dissertation stage will have the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from senior scholars in the field during in a thesis development workshop. Doctoral students who do not wish to present their research are still invited to apply; however, preference will be given to more advanced students. The application deadline for students wishing to present their work is September 15th, 2022. The application deadline for attendees not presenting their work is November 1st, 2022.
Applications are done online through the conference website. For further information about the consortium, and to apply, please visit the consortium website at: Doctoral Consortium Webpage. www.isc.org.il

The Consortium will be comprised of three components.
- "Current and future themes in Strategy" – panelists will present their views of emerging "hot" topics in the general management field, and students will be invited to suggest ideas and jointly speculate how they may play in the wider audience of strategy research.
- "Getting published in top journals" -- a panel discussions aimed at conveying to students some proven techniques of (1) framing research questions, (2) research design, (3) packaging, (4) dealing with editors and reviewers.
- "Thesis Development workshop" – a select group of doctoral students will have an opportunity to present their research and receive guidance and commentary from senior faculty. Selection for this workshop is highly competitive. (the doctoral consortium will be offered at no charge to all attending students).
Application and admission
We will prioritize doctoral students whose research is at the dissertation proposal stage. Doctoral students who do not wish to present their research at the thesis development workshop are still invited to apply and attend the doctoral consortium. Only those students wishing to present their research will be required to submit an abstract and a nomination letter. The dissertation ideas should be sufficiently developed to allow for a clear presentation of the theory and research design but leave significant room for revision based on comments received at the consortium. A nomination letter by a faculty member relating to the state of the applicant’s dissertation research is required as part of the application process. Students attending the doctoral consortium must register to the ISC. Student discount rates apply.
To apply, please visit the doctoral consortium page of the ISC website at http://www.isc.org.il/, complete the application form and upload the following documents:
- An updated Curriculum Vita.

- A nomination letter from a supervising faculty member attesting that the student is in good standing and referring to the progress of the applicant’s dissertation research.
The application deadline for students applying to the Thesis Development workshop is September 15, 2022. Acceptance notification will be sent in late September.
