OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
2017 OMT Doctoral Student Consortium
Academy of Management Annual Meeting Atlanta, Georgia August 4, 2017
Call for Applications
Deadline: April 30, 2017
We are pleased to announce that the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division will once again hold a Doctoral Student Consortium as part of the pre-conference activities at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting. Designed just for OMT members, the goal of this consortium is to help doctoral students who are broadly interested in organizations and management as they enter the final phase of their doctoral programs and prepare for the job market and future careers. We aim to help you make the most of your doctoral program, advance your research, consider how best to publish your research, find a job in the academic or professional world, manage your early career and, perhaps most importantly, establish professional networks with colleagues who share similar research interests.
The consortium includes panel presentations, discussion sessions, and workshops aimed at these goals. It has been designed to allow for high levels of interaction between faculty and students. We have a group of distinguished faculty participants from different career stages and countries, these including:
In order to maintain a high faculty/student ratio, space for this consortium is strictly limited, and interested students must be nominated by their schools and must be OMT members (either already or by joining now). Due to space constraints, doctoral programs should nominate one applicant. Universities with multiple departments seeking to send students are advised to coordinate their nominations. Preference will be given to those students who have progressed to the dissertation stage and are either on the job market or considering being on the job market in the coming year. The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2017.
Applications should be e-mailed by the department representative who nominates the student to the two consortium organizers listed below. It should include the following in the body of the e-mail:
Please attach three supporting items to the e-mail:
Students selected to attend the Consortium will be informed personally.
Please note that the Doctoral Consortium begins with an opening reception dinner on the prior evening of Thursday August 3, and ends on the afternoon of Friday August 4, 2017.
We look forward to seeing you at the AOM in Atlanta!
