The co-chairs of the 3rd EIBA DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM in 2014 are:
The number of student participants at the annual John H. Dunning Doctoral Tutorial (JHD-DT) is strictly limited to ten (as this EIBA doctoral event involves a considerable amount of faculty feedback and discussion, etc.); therefore, the current one-day format cannot accommodate more students.
For the 3rd consecutive year, the European International Business Academy (EIBA) is running the Doctoral Symposium in conjunction with the Annual Conference. The 2014 Doctoral Symposium will take place at Uppsala University, Sweden, on December 11, 2014, prior to the start of the 40th EIBA Annual Conference, December 11-13, 2014. (NOTE: All students participating in the Doctoral Symposium are required to attend the EIBA Annual Conference immediately following the Symposium; this is a mandatory requirement, and there is a special conference registration fee for student delegates.)
Students who participate in the Symposium will present a short paper about their thesis proposal. Further details on the format for this presentation will be given to participating students.
The first objective of the Doctoral Symposium is to provide an opportunity to doctoral students in International Business to discuss their research plans and their work in progress with a carefully selected range of specialist international faculty in the field of International Business (IB). The second purpose is to enable doctoral students to become acquainted with the international EIBA network of experts and colleagues working in the field of IB. The core faculty for the Symposium are people who lead in their field of research. They are chosen for their willingness and expertise to provide constructive comments and help to you in your doctoral research. The Symposium is not competitive, i.e., there is no competitive judgement of thesis proposal merit.
We encourage applications from doctoral students who are at any stage in their research, early, mid-way, or nearing completion. The only condition for acceptance at the Symposium is that the research falls within the domain of International Business.
We welcome applicants coming from schools that do not, as yet, have established IB faculty research groups, and who have a strong potential to benefit from participation in the Doctoral Symposium.
Should you be interested in this event, you are urged to send :
by September 1, 2014
As a guide, applicants should divide their 3-page abstracts into the following sections in roughly the proportions shown below, however, you should feel able, using your judgement, to vary these proportions to reflect the stage of your research (e.g., research design may not yet be determined):
We also encourage you to add, at the end of your abstract, two to three points setting out the problems you face, or specific questions for the faculty, to enable them to be of the most help to you.
Participation in the 2014 EIBA / EIASM Doctoral Symposium is open only to those students whose papers have been selected and accepted for presentation at the Symposium this year (i.e., this is a closed pre-conference event, by invitation only), and who have registered to attend the entire 40th EIBA Annual Conference at Uppsala University in Sweden.
