Doctoral Consortium

Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium provides executive doctoral students working on their dissertation research an opportunity to share and develop their research ideas, explore issues related to research in future careers, and build relationships with other executive doctorate students from around the world. To be eligible to participate in the consortium as a presenter, you must:

The Doctoral Consortium will consist of presentations and reviews of ongoing research work by the participating students in small groups with other students and faculty, keynote presentations by participating faculty, and panels.

The Doctoral Consortium will be held the day before the Engaged Management Scholarship Conference on Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Participants will also be invited to create a poster summarizing their work for the poster session held during the main conference.

Doctoral Consortium Fellow Eligibility

Participation in the Doctoral Consortium is by application only. Each student selected for the Consortium is expected to attend all Consortium meetings and activities on Thursday, September 6, 2018, as well as the Engaged Management Scholarship Conference (September 7-9, 2018). Candidates who are not able to make this commitment to the Consortium and the Conference should not apply.

Executive doctoral students currently working on research that is leading to their dissertation work are eligible for submission of application. Students who will have completed their dissertations by December 2018 will not be accepted. Prospective candidates should also note that the Doctoral Consortium is designed as an intensive personal development experience and, therefore, participants should not bring guests to the Doctoral Consortium.

Students who are selected to participate in the Consortium will be given later instructions on how to prepare their research papers for presentation during the Consortium.

Doctoral Consortium Fellow Selection process

Selection to the Engaged Management Scholarship Doctoral Consortium will be based on:


The cost of attending the Doctoral Consortium is an additional $100 to cover the cost of breaks and lunch. All accepted students to the Doctoral Consortium will also be required to register and pay for the full conference.
