The Faculty Fellowships Program is designed to support innovative and thought-provoking research from management education leaders. The Institute offers year-long $50,000 faculty fellowships for research at the fellows’ home institutions. More information is available at http://www.gmac.com/faculty.
The Doctoral Student Fellowships Program is designed to support doctoral students and beginning faculty to help them in their careers and support the field of management education. The Institute offers year-long $20,000 doctoral student fellowships for research at the fellows’ home institutions. More information is available at http://www.gmac.com/doctoral.
Past recipients of grants and fellowships have used the funds to study a variety of topics, including factors that influence new MBAs to switch careers, the relationship between work experience and performance in business school, and factors that influence career success among women with MBAs.
Last year nine projects were awarded a total of more than $450,000 in funding for 2007 by the Institute. The winning proposals, representing 12 universities in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, were selected from among 76 applications rigorously reviewed by a committee of outside faculty.
