    The International Management (IM) Division is offering a Doctoral Student Consortium (DSC) at this year's Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management on Sunday, August 6, 2023. The Consortium will be a full day in-person event hosted by Northeastern University. In addition, the IM Division is offering each PhD student who has been admitted to the DSC a stipend, covering their AoM conference registration fee. Places in the DSC are limited; the deadline to apply is June 10, 2023.


    The Doctoral Student Consortium is designed for current PhD students, who have an interest in international management, as either their primary or secondary field of inquiry. We welcome participants from all stages of the PhD program.

This is an excellent opportunity to receive valuable feedback on your work, as well as a chance to network and get to know your fellow doctoral students and leading scholars in the International Management field. Participants will also be invited to a "Meet-the-Editors" session later on the same day.
