Early-Career Consortium

Entrepreneurship Division Call for Applicants

Early Career Development Consortium Academy of Management Annual Meeting

Vancouver, BC

Friday, August 7, 2020

The Entrepreneurship Division will sponsor an Early Career Development Consortium (ECDC) during the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Vancouver, BC. This consortium is specifically designed to meet the needs of those scholars who are early in their career such as tenure-track assistant professors and ABD's. The Consortium will take place on Friday, August 7 during afternoon hours. Following the consortium, there will be a joint reception with participants from the entrepreneurship doctoral consortium. Admitted applicants are expected to participate in the entire program.

Leading entrepreneurship scholars will provide practical advice to help early-stage academics manage the pre-tenure phase of their career. Specific topics include building a successful research pipeline, navigating the publication process, and developing a reputation within a given field. The session will be highly interactive (small group discussions, personalized Q&A, etc.), involving a number of different mentors and speakers including Jean Clarke (Emlyon Business School), Stephanie Fernhaber (Butler University), Greg Fisher (Indiana University), Sam Garg (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology), Alex McKelvie (Syracuse University), Jeffrey McMullen (Indiana University), Rob Nason (Concordia University), Maija Renko (University of Illinois, Chicago), Ute Stephan (King's College London), Siri Terjesen (Florida Atlantic University), Trent Williams (Indiana University), and Matt Wood (Baylor University). 

This year's consortium is chaired by Desirée Pacheco (Portland State University) and Rob Mitchell (Colorado State University).  The consortium will be limited to 30 participants and qualified applicants will be admitted on a first come basis.

Applications are currently being accepted for the 2020 AOM Entrepreneurship Early Career Consortium. To apply, send the following items as email attachments to Desirée Pacheco (pacheco@pdx.edu) with "ECDC" in the subject line.
