Then we would like to invite you to the EURAM 2014 Doctoral Colloquium!


Learn from leading management scholars!

Experienced management scholars will share their knowledge in doing research and being a researcher. Learning from those scholars and asking them all the questions you’ve always wanted to ask is a great opportunity to become part of the management research community. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about the tacit knowledge underlying a PhD process and to get useful insights on how to complete a PhD in a successful way.


Learn from each other!

The largest part of the colloquium is dedicated to the discussion of your papers in small groups –each supervised by an experienced senior researcher, many of them global thought leaders in their field. The aim is not that you shall give a “traditional” paper presentation, but to briefly outline your research and from that engage in intensive interactive sessions aiming at giving you advice and feedback for the particular questions you have. We will circulate the papers of each group member in advance to make sure that each one can read the papers of the others before meeting in Valencia.


Identify your way of joining the EURAM community of researchers!

You will get useful hints on how to become part of the EURAM Community of researchers. We will invite you to become part of our growing online community and tell you – as a prospective young academic – more about EECC, the European Early Career Community. Moreover, we are very happy to announce that representatives for EURAM Strategic Interest Groups (SIGs) will join in – not only with their scientific expertise – but also with information on the scientific development of EURAM that may be of great value for conference newcomers.


Express your talent and win the EURAM Paper Award for doctoral students!

Our scientific committee will select the winner of the EURAM 2014 Doctoral Colloquium Best Paper Award among all accepted submissions. This is an excellent opportunity to advance in your academic career!

Here and now – a teaser via the voice of Shehla Arifeen, from Lancaster University Management School (LUMS), UK:

Shehla says: The Doctoral Colloquium was also an extremely valuable way of acquiring new perspectives, as in addition to sessions by a range of speakers, the students – drawn from across Europe – were given mentoring in small groups of four to five students.

“We were allocated a faculty member of a European university who was our mentor over the two days. The quality of mentoring was excellent, as the mentor had done her homework, reading each paper in detail, and involved all the group members in looking at each of the papers critically, highlighting strengths and weaknesses. I have plenty of ideas to work on further. Other faculty who were part of the mentoring teams were also always ready to discuss one’s research.

“This was my first experience of representing LUMS outside the UK. It was a great learning experience for me, and provided a warm and supportive atmosphere for co-creation of knowledge. I would strongly recommend other students to take part in the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium.”
