The SMS will hold a Doctoral Workshop on June 13, 2019, preceding the SMS Special Conference in Frankfurt. Attending doctoral students will be accepted through an application process.
The main objectives of the Doctoral Workshop are to foster interaction among leading faculty scholars and doctoral students on various aspects of research and on preparing for a professional career in academia. The doctoral student participants will broaden their academic network with senior faculty from around the world and develop a better understanding of the particularities of the academic career.
Applicant preference for this workshop will be given to doctoral students whose interests and research to date relate to the focus of the SMS Special Conference in Frankfurt, Hits and Misses: Strategic Decisions in an Uncertain World. Leading researchers in the field will bring their experience into the discussion to further develop participants’ insight into the key themes of this conference.
The format of the workshop will be a combination of presentations by and interactive discussions with a panel of senior international faculty.
All current doctoral students interested in participating in the workshop are invited to submit one file in the Application Box that includes their Curriculum Vitae (highlighting work corresponding to the conference theme) and a description of their planned dissertation research (maximum 3 pages, single spaced).
