Junior Faculty/Doctoral Students Consortium

Are you a doctoral student? Are you a junior faculty (just completed your PhD) who is just starting your academic career? If so, consider attending the Junior faculty/Doctoral Students consortium. We are planning an exciting session that covers a variety of topics relevant for the African context. We are currently taking applications for the 2018 Africa Academy of Management (AFAM) Doctoral Consortium to be held at the AFAM annual meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on January 3th.

This workshop is geared toward Junior faculty/ doctoral students with the intent of helping participants to navigate the collection of issues (career, research, teaching, practice) that begin to emerge in the Junior faculty and doctoral student stages. At these stages, it is important for students and faculty to begin to reflect on research that shows the contribution of Africa to the global management community.

The theme of the Consortium is Developing High Performing Scholarship. So, the discussion and sessions will be oriented toward guiding participants to consider conceptual and empirical work that enriches the global management field by addressing interesting questions from the African context.

There is no charge for the Consortium. However, interested participants must be selected by the Chair of the Consortium.

Highlights of this year's Consortium include:

  • A session by Editors of the Academy of Management Journal.
  • A research feedback session with leading scholars.
  • A variety of panels and discussions about publication in high quality journals, effective teaching, managing ones career,
  • Networking with leading faculty and fellow faculty/doctoral students
  • Career development and career choices
  • A panel meeting with major journal editors
  • An informal after-session social on January 3th.
