    2024 OMT Doctoral Student Consortium

    Academy of Management Annual Meeting
    Friday August 9, 2024

    Call for Nominations

    Nomination Deadline: May 10, 2024

    We are pleased to announce that the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division will once again hold its Doctoral Student Consortium as part of the Academy of Management (AOM) Annual Meeting. This year, the consortium is tentatively scheduled for Friday, August 9th. The consortium will be in person in Chicago, USA.

    The goal of this consortium is to orient doctoral students who are broadly interested in organizations and management as they enter the final phase of their doctoral programs. It helps them prepare and plan for the next step in their careers. We aim to help students make the most of their doctoral experience, advance and publish their research, find academic jobs, manage their early careers, and, perhaps most importantly, establish professional networks with colleagues who share research interests.

    The consortium will include a combination of the following (all on August 9th, 2024):

    ·        Keynote/panels on career development, finding a job, and discussions with journal editors;

    ·        Live roundtable discussions around research themes;

    ·        Opportunities to meet and chat with peers and faculty mentors, including an optional, informal reception on Thursday, 8th August, 2024.

    Around 24 faculty members have confirmed their participation in this event. Many have been editors for leading journals and won prestigious research, teaching, and service awards. They represent a range of career levels and geographies and will provide diverse perspectives. Confirmed faculty mentors include:

    Application Instructions

    The consortium is designed to allow for high levels of faculty-student interaction. In order to maintain a high faculty/student ratio, space for this consortium is limited. Interested students must be nominated by their schools and must be OMT members (either already or by joining now). Doctoral programs should aim to limit their nominations to one applicant. Schools/universities with multiple departments seeking to send students should coordinate their nominations. If they decide to nominate more than one applicant, they should rank them (due to space limitations, we may only be able to accept one applicant). Preference will be given to students who have progressed to the dissertation stage and are either on, or considering being on, the job market in the coming year.

    Nominations should include basic information about the nominated student (name, e-mail address, and university affiliation). They should also include confirmation that the student is (or will become) a member of the OMT division and that the student will complete doctoral coursework and comprehensive exams (or any equivalent milestone such as a proposal defense) by August 1, 2024.

    Applications are due by May 10th, 2024, and require the submission of the following information:

    1.    A brief letter from faculty advisor providing a general appraisal of the nominee, including an assessment of the nominee's progress toward a dissertation defense, expected defense date, and the subject of dissertation;

    2.    The nominee's CV (including research/teaching interests, publications, and/or working papers);

    3.    A 3-5 pages summary of a research project on which the nominee would like to receive feedback.

    Please name the files using the following convention: Last name_Document.

    Scholarships are available to support participants who lack budget/resources from their schools. To be considered, indicate your request for a scholarship when applying and provide a letter/statement from the faculty advisor explicitly stating that their institution does not provide funding for the AOM conference.

    Nominations should be submitted by the department representative via the following online form only (no email nominations, please):
    Please upload the letter, CV, and research project summary to the following Dropbox folder

    If you have any questions, please contact the organizers. We look forward to seeing you at AOM in Chicago!

    A big thank you to our generous sponsors for making the consortium possible.
