EM SIG Consortium


AMA Entrepreneurial Marketing SIG Doctoral Consortium, San Diego, 1-3 Aug 2016; Deadline 1 May

This Doctoral Consortium is designed for doctoral students and new assistant professors (less than 3 years since receiving their degree). 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 Entrepreneurial Marketing SIG International Doctoral Consortium. This special interest group of the AMA has a long history of partnership with the annual Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Symposium. At this year’s Research Symposium, we are continuing this 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 San Diego, CA on August 1st, prior to the 29th Global Research Symposium on Marketing and Entrepreneurship. The deadline to submit applications is May 1, 2016. Please email your application materials to Fabian Eggers at fabian.eggers@menlo.edu. Ten fellows will be named and invited.

Consortium fellows selected for the consortium will have their Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Symposium fees waived, have complimentary meals during the official portion of the consortium and the symposium, and have their hotel room expenses paid up to $500. Note that the meeting begins on the morning of August 1st and the fees and expenses mentioned here apply only to activities associated with the Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Symposium. Fellows must be present during the entirety of the symposium.

Nominations should have the following attachments:

  1. A brief letter of support from established faculty (if a doctoral student is applying).
  2. A ONE page abstract or research plan from the nominee explaining his/her research interests in entrepreneurial marketing. This may be of recent or of planned research.
  3. The nominee’s curriculum vita, including dissertation topic if developed.

The nomination packets must be complete when submitted and 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.
