    Social Entrepreneurship Intensive Doctoral Seminar

    August 2-7, 2020

    A week-long intensive social entrepreneurship doctoral seminar will be offered by Professor Tom Lumpkin this summer during the week preceding the Academy of Management meeting in Vancouver, BC, Canada-August 2-7, 2020.  The seminar provides an in-depth survey of the core concepts and primary literature in the social entrepreneurship domain, and guidance for critical thinking and development as a social entrepreneurship scholar. Since 2010, the seminar has been offered annually to an international audience in locations around North America and Europe. Professor Lumpkin will be joined in teaching the seminar by Professor Sophie Bacq, Indiana University. 

    For more information, please go to the following website: 

    Students will apply and be admitted based on their qualifications and letters of interest. A maximum of ten students will be admitted (including 1-2 slots for faculty who may be interested). Students will be expected to read approximately 50 academic journal articles and prepare discussion questions and notes prior to the intensive seminar. During the months immediately following the seminar, students seeking course credit will be asked to write an article for submission to a journal and/or academic conference. As such, the course will meet the contact hours and scholarly requirements to qualify as a 3-hour doctoral level credit course.

    Collaborations originating from relationships formed during past seminars have generated articles published in Academy of Management Review, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, and International Small Business Journal, and numerous conference presentations.
