The co-chairs of the 34th EIBA / EIASM JOHN H. DUNNING DOCTORAL TUTORIAL IN INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS (2020) are:
Lars Håkanson, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
The first objective of the EIBA / EIASM John H. Dunning Doctoral Tutorial in International Business (JHD-DT) is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students in International Business (IB) to discuss their research plans and works-in-progress with a distinguished international Faculty. A secondary purpose is to acquaint them with an international network of professionals linked to the IB field and EIBA. The core faculty of the Doctoral Tutorial is composed of leading scholars in International Business.
The number of student participants accepted for the annual Doctoral Tutorial is limited to ten (as this EIBA doctoral event involves a considerable amount of faculty feedback and discussion; therefore, the current one-day format cannot accommodate more students). Please note that attendance to the whole tutorial is mandatory and participants are required to have their cameras on during the whole event. The doctoral thesis with the most potential (as selected by the Faculty immediately following the event) is awarded the EIBA Best Doctoral Thesis Proposal in International Business Award, consisting of a certificate and money prize.
Please note that all accepted students participating in the doctoral events must be duly & fully registered for the EIBA 2020 online conference – this is a mandatory eligibility requirement. The JHD Doctoral Tutorial and DVDB Doctoral Symposium are closed and complimentary pre-conference sessions intended for fully-registered PhD student participants who have duly applied for and been accepted to one of the EIBA doctoral events.
ATTENTION: Submissions not accepted for the Doctoral Tutorial may be considered for the Doctoral Symposium; however, there is no implied guarantee of acceptance for any EIBA doctoral event – the respective organisers reserve the right of making final decisions.
The 34th John H. Dunning Doctoral Tutorial (JHD-DT) for International Business doctoral students is being organized in conjunction with the 46th Annual Conference of the European International Business Academy (EIBA) to be held online on December 10-12, 2020.
The 2020 JHD-DT will take place virtually on Friday, December 10, 2020, on Day 1 of the EIBA 2020 Online Conference. The 2020 Doctoral Tutorial is being co-chaired by Jean-François Hennart and Gabriel R.G. Benito.
Applications for participation need to be sent by September 14 using the template described below. The ten selected participants will then be asked to submit an updated ten-page version of their thesis proposal by November 16, 2020 following the guidelines listed below. (All accepted students participating in this event must also be fully registered for the EIBA 2020 conference – this is a mandatory requirement.)
An award will be presented to the participating student with the most promising thesis proposal at the 2020 JHD-DT. (Click HERE to view the complete list of previous JHD-DT award winners.)
We are particularly keen to encourage applications from doctoral students who, although not yet being close to having completed their thesis, are already at an advanced stage and have developed a clear idea of the theories, methods, and 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 their thesis. (Those in the early stages may be interested in applying instead for the Danny Van Den Bulcke Doctoral Symposium.) We particularly encourage applicants from schools that do not as yet have established IB faculty research groups.
by September 14th, 2020
Applicants should divide their three-page abstracts into the following sections – in roughly the proportions shown below as a guideline:
NOTE: If your thesis is made up of several papers, it may make sense to introduce the theme and then to focus on one of the papers so that you can provide sufficient details.
NOTE: The September 14th deadline has passed – it is therefore no longer possible
Guidelines to participants of the Doctoral Tutorial for the preparation of their paper and presentation.
You will have 20 minutes to present. Your PowerPoint presentations should therefore consist of a maximum of 10 slides.
We strongly advise to divide the 10 pages of your paper and the 10 slides of your presentation into 6 sections as follows: (1) the central research question addressed (including a brief statement of the topic, and of the issue or problem that motivates the research) [1 page or 1 slide]; (2) theory, literature review, and hypotheses [2 pages or 2 slides]; (3) research design: method (qualitative, quantitative or mixed) and rationale for choosing this method; dependent variable and main independent variables; data sources; and analysis techniques [3 pages or 3 slides]; (4) expected results and summary of the evidence of the study thus far (including any preliminary findings) [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 (including any specific questions for the faculty panel) [1 page or 1 slide].
