For the 25th consecutive year, a Doctoral Tutorial for International Business students will be organized in conjunction with the Annual Conference of the European International Business Academy (EIBA). The 2011 Doctoral Tutorial will take place in Bucharest, Romania on 8 December 2011, immediately before EIBA's Annual Conference, 8-10 December 2011. (All participating students are required to attend the EIBA Conference.)
The first objective of the Tutorial is to provide an opportunity to doctoral students in International Business to discuss their research plans and their work in progress both with a distinguished international faculty and their colleagues. The second purpose is to get them acquainted with the international EIBA-network of experts and colleagues working in the field of International Business. The core faculty for the Tutorial is composed of leading scholars in the field of International Business. (The names of this year's faculty will be announced as soon as possible after the submission deadline.)
The students who are selected to participate in the Tutorial will be requested to present a short paper about their thesis proposal. Participating students are required to also attend the EIBA Annual Conference, immediately following the Tutorial. There is a special registration fee for students. An award of 1000 EUR will be presented to the student with the most promising thesis proposal. You can see the complete list of previous winners HERE.
We are particularly keen to encourage applications from doctoral students who, although not yet being close to having completed their theses, have already developed a clear idea of the data they will use (or are in the process of collecting), and of their intended research design. That is, we welcome especially applications from doctoral candidates who are mid-way through the process of research for their thesis.
However, despite the above preference, we strive for a mix of students at different stages of thesis preparation. We are also keen to encourage applicants from schools that do not as yet have established IB faculty research groups, but again with the aim of ensuring a reasonable mix of participants from different backgrounds for the tutorial.
Since the number of participants is strictly limited, if you are interested in this event, you are urged to send :
by September 1, 2011
a three-page abstract of the doctoral research currently being undertaken (Times Roman 12 font, single line spacing, 3-page limit including any figures or tables)
your CV in which you are kindly requested to mention:
- the number of months (years) you have been working on your doctoral thesis
- the name of your main thesis advisor
We recommend that applicants divide their 3-page abstracts into the following sections in roughly the proportions shown as a guideline:
(1) the central research question addressed (to include a brief statement of the topic, and of the issue or problem that motivates the research) [10%];
(2) theory and literature review [20%];
(3) research design, data and methodology (to include hypotheses in the case of quantitative methods, and the methods of measurement and the generative questions that will guide grounded theory building in the case of those using qualitative methods) [30%];
(4) expected results and summary of the evidence of the study thus far (to include if applicable an outline of any preliminary findings) [20%];
(5) expected contribution and its significance to scholarship in the IB field [10%]; and
(6) conclusions, and remaining concerns or problems to be overcome [10%].
The deadline (September 1st, 2011) is over. Therefore it is no longer possible to submit.
|GUIDELINES FOR THE FINAL PAPERS & PRESENTATIONS
Guidelines to participants of the doctoral tutorial for the preparation of their paper and presentation.
Papers should be a maximum of 10 pages (10 point Times New Roman, 1.5 line spacing) (excluding bibliography). PowerPoint presentations for the Doctoral tutorial itself should consist of a maximum of 10 slides. We strongly advise students to divide their 10 pages and 10 slides into 6 mandatory sections as follows: (1) the central research question addressed (to include a brief statement of the topic, and of the issue or problem that motivates the research) [1 page or 1 slide]; (2) theory and literature review [2 pages or 2 slides]; (3) research design, qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods (rationale, data collection and analysis techniques) [3 pages or 3 slides]; (4) expected results and summary of the evidence of the study thus far (to include an outline of any preliminary findings if applicable) [2 pages or 2 slides]; (5) expected contribution and its significance to IB scholarship [1 page or 1 slide]; and (6) conclusions, and remaining concerns or problems to be overcome (to include any areas in which help would still be useful, and any questions for the faculty panel) [1 page or 1 slide].
The EIBA / EIASM Doctoral Tutorial is open only to the students whose papers have been selected and accepted for presentation this year, and who have agreed to attend the 37th EIBA Annual Conference in Bucharest.
The Tutorial will take place in the Board room, first floor of the Academy of Economic Studies, 6, Romana Square, district 1, Bucharest.
