OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
This year's OMT / MOC Doctoral Consortium was organized by Eva Boxenbaum (Mines ParisTech), OMT Division Rep-at-Large, Shelley Brickson (Illinois-Chicago), MOC Division Rep-at-Large, Frances Fabian (U. of Memphis), MOC Division Rep-at-Large, and Peer Fiss (U. of Southern California), OMT Division Rep-at-Large.
More than 20 faculty volunteered their time and expertise. And 45 doctoral students from around the world participated after being selected from an exceptionally large pool of nominees. The event started Thursday night with a cocktail hour and dinner at Restaurant Avila in Park Square, Boston.
Friday's agenda kicked off with a keynote on engaged scholarship by Majken Schultz (Copenhagen Business School); She kindly stepped in with two days notice to replace Mary Ann Glynn, who was held back by family illness. The keynote was followed by dissertation roundtables where 15 OMT and MOC scholars gave feedback to groups of three doctoral students. Prior to lunch, we heard from Gerry Davis (U. of Michigan) on the publishing process. After lunch, Renate Meyer (WU Vienna) spoke on the topic of being an organizational researcher in Europe, followed by Colin Fisher (Boston U.), who provided an insider’s guide to the US job market. In mid-afternoon, the Doctoral Consortium joined up with the Junior Faculty Consortium for teaching roundtables, organized by David Touve (Washington and Lee U.), Chair of the OMT Teaching Committee.
Colin Fisher has kindly made his slides and his original 2009 job package available on the 2012 OMT / MOC Doctoral Consortium Google Site.
This event received a helpful sponsorship from Emerald.
