Junior Faculty Consortium Fast Facts

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 the 2022 Junior Faculty Consortium. Although preference will be given to those who have obtained their PhD no more than three years ago, the consortium aims to be as inclusive as possible.

How is This Event Structured?

The 2022 Academy of International Business (AIB) Junior Faculty Consortium will be held on 6 July 2022 from 8:15 am to 4:00 pm EDT. The consortium is designed to facilitate and further the personal and career development of early-stage (post-Ph.D.) academics whose research touches, at least in part, on international or comparative business broadly defined.

The consortium will provide plenty of opportunity for interaction, both among junior faculty participants and between the junior and senior faculty. There will also be time for junior faculty to discuss their research program and/or a specific research project, and teaching development and career plans. The consortium will feature panels with Q&A to learn from senior faculty, and breakout sessions in small groups comprised of both junior and senior colleagues.]

Depending on circumstances, the consortium may be held partially online. Details and any adjustments will be provided accordingly.
