This Doctoral Consortium is designed for new assistant professors (less than 3 years since receiving their degree) and doctoral students. New assistant professors researching the interface of marketing and entrepreneurship are encouraged to self-nominate themselves for this Consortium.

The conference committee is pleased to invite established faculty to nominate doctoral students who are researching marketing and entrepreneurship to the American Marketing Association Marketing and Entrepreneurship SIG International Doctoral Consortium. This special interest group of the AMA has a long history of partnership with the annual UIC Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Symposium. At this year’s Research Symposium, we are continuing this new consortium tradition of encouraging and guiding doctoral students who are considering or are researching the intersecting domains of marketing and entrepreneurship. This consortium will be held in Chicago, August 5-7, 2009. The deadline to submit applications is June 1, 2009. Please email your nominations to Glenn S. Omura at

Consortium Fellows selected for the consortium will have their Symposium fees waived, have complimentary meals during the official portion of the Consortium and the Symposium, and have their hotel room expenses paid, for August 5th and 6th at the Symposium hotel. Nominations should have the following attachments:

  1. A letter of recommendation from established faculty (if a doctoral student is applying).
  2. A letter of interest from the nominee.
  3. The nominee’s curriculum vita, including dissertation topic if developed.

The nomination packets will be reviewed for acceptance by the Consortium Chairs.

The Research Symposium will have a portion of its official program reserved for participation by the doctoral consortium students. It should be observed that this event is separate from the annual AMA Marketing Doctoral Consortium and the attendance of a doctoral student at this event will not lead to disqualification from the regular Marketing Doctoral Consortium program.
