    Social Entrepreneurship Doctoral Seminar

    Offered by IMD

    June 8-13, 2024

    August 4-9, 2024

    Two week-long intensive social entrepreneurship doctoral seminars will be offered by IMD and led by Sophie Bacq and Tom Lumpkin next summer: the first one during the week following the Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference in Munich, Germany-June 8-13, 2024-and the second one during the week preceding the Academy of Management meeting in Chicago, IL-August 4-9, 2024. 

    This one-of-a-kind doctoral seminar provides an in-depth survey of the core concepts and primary literature in the social entrepreneurship domain, as well as guidance for critical thinking and development as a social entrepreneurship scholar. Since 2010, the seminar has been offered every year to an international audience in locations around North America, Europe, and Africa.


    For more information, please go to the following website: sedocseminar.org 


    Students will apply and be admitted based on their qualifications and letters of interest. A maximum of ten students will be admitted (including 1-2 slots for faculty who may be interested). Students will be expected to read approximately 50 academic journal articles and prepare discussion questions and notes prior to the intensive seminar. During the months immediately following the seminar, students seeking course credit will be asked to write an article for submission to a journal and/or academic conference. As such, the course will meet the contact hours and scholarly requirements to qualify as a 3-hour doctoral level credit course, equivalent to 6 ECTS.

    The seminar is also open to faculty who would like to pursue social entrepreneurship research and study the domain in greater depth.

    Collaborations originating from relationships formed during past seminars have generated articles published in Academy of Management Annals, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, and International Small Business Journal, and numerous conference presentations. 


    To learn more and request information about applying for the seminar, go to sedocseminar.org. The deadline for applying is FEBRUARY 1, 2024.
