Doctoral Consortium Information

Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium


October 1, 2021

Taormina, Sicily, Italy


The Doctoral and Junior Faculty Consortium is a workshop for current and recently-graduated Ph.D. students. ​


We welcome participants from all over the world and given the challenges we have all endured over the last year, the AMA Global Marketing SIG aims to offer generous travel stipends to support current and recently-graduated doctoral students who attend and present at the consortium and celebrate the return to in-person conferences.


Please submit your application via the EasyChair conference management system by July 15, 2021.

The goal of the Consortium is to provide a supportive discussion on topics such as 1) trends in international marketing research, 2) publishing international marketing research in top journals, and 3) managing your career to be a high-impact researcher and educator.


In addition, participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their current research projects as well as ideas and guidance for their future research plans.


​The consortium will consist of a combination of panel discussions with leading scholars in the field and small group research feedback sessions.
