OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
2015 OMT Doctoral Student Consortium Academy of Management Annual Meeting Vancouver, Canada August 7, 2015
Call for Applications
Revised Deadline: April 30, 2015
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, and, perhaps most importantly, establish professional networks with colleagues who share similar research interests.
The consortium will include a variety of panel presentations, interactive discussion sessions, and workshops aimed at these goals. It has been designed to allow for high levels of interaction between faculty and students. 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). Faculty participants include:
Due to space constraints, doctoral programs should nominate one applicant. Universities with multiple departments seeking to send students need 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, 2014.
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:
Three supporting items should be attached to the e-mail:
Students selected to attend the Consortium will be sent a registration code that will allow them to register online.
Additional information about the OMT Doctoral Consortium will be available on the OMT website.
If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact the OMT Doctoral Consortium organizers Mark Ebers --

N.B. Please note that the Consortium begins with an opening dinner on the evening of August 6 and ends at 5:30 pm on August 7, 2015.
We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver!
