    Entrepreneurship Division Call for Applicants

    Early Career Development Consortium, Academy of Management Annual Meeting

    Join the Entrepreneurship Division for this year's Early Career Development Consortium (ECDC) during the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Chicago. We are currently planning on holding this in person only consortium on Friday, August 9th (exact timing may be subject to change based on the Academy's Scheduling). 

    The consortium has two main components.

    1)     Main consortium session (9.00 AM – 1.00 PM) on August 9th  

    2)     Evening social (~5:30PM).

    The Early Career Development Consortium (ECDC) is specifically designed to meet the needs of those scholars who are early in their career such as tenure-track assistant professors (pre-tenure packet submission). As a part of the application process, we solicit topics / questions that are top of mind among participants to maximize the customization of the program to your needs.

    The format for the consortium is intimate and interactive (small group discussions, personalized Q&A, etc.), where we pair small groups of attendees with mentors. Leading entrepreneurship scholars (serving as mentors) will interact with participants, guiding the discussion that will include practical advice to help early-stage academics manage the pre-tenure phase of their career. The goal of this format is also to allow participants to ask specific questions, meet with and interact with individuals in their similar situation, and develop relationships with other participants that (we hope) will continue to be beneficial as they move through their careers. Some examples of specific topics include: building a successful research pipeline, navigating the publication process, and developing a reputation within a given field.

    We will have mentors with deep expertise in entrepreneurship as well as those who operate at the intersection.

    The consortium is chaired by Magdalena Cholakova (Rotterdam School of Management) and Marcus Wolfe (University of North Texas).

    Applications are currently being accepted for the 2024 AOM Entrepreneurship Early Career Consortium. To apply to the consortium, please complete the following form. We are accepting these immediately and will continue receiving applications up to May 30, 2023.

    If you have any questions, please contact Magdalena Cholakova (cholakova@rsm.nl).

    Thank you!
