Welcome to EIASM's Autumn 2021 Newsletter

Dear EIASM Friends,

We hope you have enjoyed a rejuvenating summer break and that this newsletter finds you
and your loved ones in good health and good spirits!

We are infused with hope to experience face-to-face activities as soon as possible, and new forms of normality, because while we have all been able to adapt globally and carry out our missions in remote mode, we strongly aspire to return to more human relationships. As you will discover in our upcoming activities, some EIASM events have already been switched back to in-person mode.

Another academic year is dawning!
e will be starting it with the 50th Anniversary Celebratory EIASM Academic Council Meeting 
to be held online this week on Thursday September 9th and Friday September 10th 2021.  

The annual EIASM Academic Council Meeting provides an important opportunity to bring together representatives of the member Schools and Universities as well as major sister Association representatives – to develop a shared approach towards advanced studies in management, and discuss what we can do together better and what EIASM can do differently. This forum will be fundamental in defining the future directions of our new environment!

After the success of its launch last spring, the EIASM Webinar Series Season #2 will start soon, in mid-September 2021! 
Cooperation is a must: we have enhanced the benefits for Universities of being 
EIASM Academic Council members – if your institution is not yet a member, just take a look at the advantages of being part of this fabulous community!

Doctoral education and PhD support in these uncertain times are fundamental mainstays. In order to better master the changes in our environment, the EIASM Board wishes to conduct surveys relating to changes in needs and preferences in matters of management doctoral education. These studies should allow us to determine which types of courses and network activities doctoral students need and prefer after their COVID-19 experiences with online courses…
If you would like to help us with this survey process, please spare a few minutes of your time to answer the survey – which you will find by clicking on one of the following links:

– You are a doctoral student

– You are a PhD supervisor:

– You are the head of a doctoral school:  

We all must strive to be agile and flexible in the services we are offering, to adapt to the future we will share. At EIASM we believe that this is an opportune time for cooperation, supportive logic, and exchanges of good practices and collective thinking – to maintain, sustain and enhance European research activities in Management. You will discover in this newsletter the services we have developed and adapted to reach these specific needs.

As always but especially in these uncertain times, the EIASM Board and Staff remain fully at your service. EIASM remains an integral service hub for developing and sustaining collaborative networks of European management scholars and institutions. Never hesitate to contact us for the development of your projects.

THIS WEEK: 50th Anniversary Celebratory EIASM Academic Council Meeting

The 2021 EIASM Academic Council Meeting will be held online – on Thursday & Friday, September 9-10, 2021.  

This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of EIASM and will be reaffirming our mission to foster and support innovative, rigorous, responsible and impactful research in management, governance and related disciplines!

This annual meeting of the EIASM Academic Council provides an important opportunity to bring together representatives of the member Schools and Universities to develop a shared approach towards advanced studies in management. Doctoral Education has always been central to the mission of the EIASM and is, more than ever, critical to the development of knowledge in Europe. Together our program of EDEN seminars, EIASM workshops and conferences have pushed the boundaries of management research for doctoral students and faculty. The format and program of doctoral events continues to evolve in response to the interdisciplinary character of today’s "Grand Challenges" and the need for rigorous evidence based research and outcomes. More recently, responsibility and sustainability have become central to Management Education as stakeholders rise to the challenge of satisfying both their corporate goals and societal responsibilities. So what next? What can we do together better and what can EIASM do differently?

These strategic questions will be the focus of the 2021 Academic Council meeting agenda. Indeed the title of the first session on Thursday afternoon September 9th is EIASM’s role in Management Research and PhD Education: Navigating Interdisciplinarity and Grand Challenges!

Thursday afternoon will close with a session dedicated to the 4th EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award, to be presented  to Prof. Ingmar Björkman, from Aalto University School of Business, who as the special guest of our Academic Council meeting will give a speech on "Building an Impactful Business School: Interdisciplinarity in Action".

In addition, a panel group discussion on Friday morning September 10th will address Doctoral Education in Management: Needs & Requirements for 2050, on the basis of surveys currently carried out among PhD students, supervisors and heads of doctoral schools. 

We believe the agenda of the 2021 EIASM Academic Council Meeting provides an opportunity to explore and plan specific activities for Academic Council Members and the EIASM community to enhance the experience and impact of Doctoral Education and Advanced Studies in Management. (Reports will be made available upon request.)

EIASM Launches Two New EDEN Doctoral Seminars

► Doctoral Seminar on Meta-Analysis for Management Research
October 18-21 2021 – Bremen, Germany
Application Deadline: September 19, 2021

In collaboration with VHB-ProDok the support programme for doctorates in business studies in German-speaking countries, EIASM is pleased to announce the launch of a new Doctoral Seminar on Meta-Analysis for Management Research scheduled to take place in Bremen, Germany, on October 18-21, 2021.

This semiar deals with methods for conducting a meta-analysis. The purpose is to train the participants to conduct and publish a high-quality scientific meta-analysis within the broad field of management research. The seminar will cover the entire meta-analysis research process, from problem formulation, literature search, coding of the effects, analysis, to reporting and publishing the findings. The emphasis is on knowledge and skills needed to conduct a meta-analysis, not only on the statistical details. All steps of the meta-analysis process (including the statistical analyses) will be demonstrated and practiced in assignments during the workshop. In addition, all topics will be illustrated by means of actual meta-analysis examples. Participants will be informed about relevant literature (textbooks and journal articles) and software supporting meta-analysis projects. In particular, most analyses will be demonstrated using R; in particular the package metafor.

Credits: 6 ECTS
