UIC/MEIG Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Interface Symposium

Entrepreneurial marketing topics are rarely integrated in mainstream marketing doctoral coursework and readings. In 2007, the UIC Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies, E.M. Kauffman Foundation, and American Marketing Association’s Marketing-Entrepreneurship SIG invited doctoral students from around the world who were studying marketing and entrepreneurship to attend the UIC Symposium on the Marketing Entrepreneurship Research Interface. Over a dozen doctoral students, many from outside the United States, attended the Symposium held at George Washington University. The success of this event encouraged the Symposium organizers to develop and integrate a special colloquium for the doctoral students at the 2008 Symposium, with a special focus on "International Marketing Entrepreneurship," coordinated by the Swedish Business School at Örebro University. The 2008 Colloquium was extremely successful, leading to a 2009 colloquium.

The Kauffman Foundation and the Marketing and Entrepreneurship SIG invites doctoral students and new assistant professors to gather and discuss emerging issues in the area, just prior to the American Marketing Association Summer Educators’ Meeting. This second Colloquium will be held at the University of Illinois at Chicago. International scholars will be invited to address various issues of relevance to young researchers.

These presentations will be held in the opening afternoon of the Annual UIC Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Symposium, and integrated with the rest of the Symposium program.

Doctoral students and new assistant professors are invited to this Colloquium. Fellows will be provided complimentary admission to the Symposium, all Symposium meals, and a small stipend to offset a portion of their airline/hotel expenses.
