  • Consortium Organizers:

Who is This Event For?

All junior faculty members who are active in research and teaching in the broad field of international business are invited to participate. In order to make the consortium an effective exchange forum, we will be restricting the number of participants to 40 and will emphasize quality and diversity in the selection. Preference will be given to those who have been involved in teaching and/or research for no more than three years.

How is This Event Structured?

The 2021 Academy of International Business (AIB) Junior Faculty Consortium will be held virtually on June 27, 2021.

Note that there are two separate but similar sessions held for participants in different time zones (Asia and the Americas, with Africa and Europe in between and with the ability to attend either). Participants will be assigned to one of the sessions based on their time zones (but African and European students may wish to alert the organizers to their preferred session in their application). All JFC participants will also have the opportunity to join participants in the Doctoral Consortium for two joint panel discussions on “Ethics in Publication” and “Meeting the Editors”.

A tentative schedule for consortium participants in African/European and Asian time zones is as follows:

  • 11am – 2pm UTC/GMT: Junior Faculty Consortium Session (View Local Time)
  • 2pm – 4pm UTC/GMT: Ethics in Publication/Meeting the Editors (View Local Time)

A tentative schedule for consortium participants in American and African/European time zones is as follows:
