Who is This Event For?

The 2023 Academy of International Business (AIB) Junior Faculty Consortium will be held on July 6, 2023 from 9am-12pm. The consortium is designed to facilitate and further the personal and career development of early-stage (post-PhD) 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. It will be held in person.

All junior faculty members who are active in research and teaching in the broad field of international business are invited to participate. 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.
