OB Doctoral Consortium at Academy of Management

The Organizational Behavior Doctoral Consortium is designed for students who are in the final year of their doctoral program (i.e., students who are currently on the job market and who have made significant progress on their dissertation/thesis research) and priority will be given to students who have made the most progress toward completing their Ph.D. program, but who have not yet defended their dissertations. The consortium will take place in-person at the Annual AOM conference on August 6, 2022 from 8:00AM - 6:30PM local time.

The consortium includes a mix of presentations, panel discussions, and interactive sessions designed to launch doctoral students into their academic careers. Faculty presentations, interactive panels with journal editors, and roundtable sessions include topics such as crafting the right academic job, succeeding at research and publishing, and preparing for effective teaching, as well as other related topics.

Consortium Tips

  1. There will be at least 3 roundtable sessions where you will have a chance to discuss presentation topics with a professor and several fellow students.
  2. Although the job market can be stressful, try to relax, have fun, and get to know your colleagues.

We look forward to welcoming you to the OB Doctoral Consortium at AOM!
