    STR Managing Your Dissertation Workshop
    Pre-registration Deadline: July 15, 2022


    The STR Managing Your Dissertation Workshop will be offered as a pre-conference activity (in person) for doctoral students in strategy at the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management on Aug 6 2022, at 12:30PM - 4:15PM PT (UTC-7) in Seattle. The workshop is open to all doctoral students. The workshop offers practical advice to advanced doctoral students on completing their dissertations and transitioning to their first academic positions. Pre-registration from students is required.

    The workshop will be conducted in an informal setting where students will be able to interact with faculty and other students in small groups. The finalists for last year's STR Outstanding Dissertation Award share the coordination of the workshop. These finalists are: Stephen Downing (PhD National Chiao Tung University), Harsh Ketkar (PhD Michigan Ross), Hyunjin Kim (PhD HBS), Arianna Marchetti (PhD INSEAD), and Almantas Palubinskas (PhD Whitman School of Management). The format of the PDW will mix plenary presentations by senior faculty followed by Q&As, and breakout discussion groups led by last year's finalists for the STR Outstanding Dissertation Award. The following is a partial list of faculty members who have agreed to participate in the workshop: Seth Carnahan (Olin Business School), Jin-Su Kang (National Chiao Tung University), Maria Minniti (Whitman School of Management), Ithai Stern (INSEAD), and Dennis Yao (HBS).

    If you are a doctoral student in strategy, you are encouraged to attend. Small group discussion will allow for interaction of people at similar stages. Topics to be covered include: (a) managing a dissertation committee, (b) considerations on research design, (c) practical and technical issues associated with data collection, (d) seeking a job and preparing the job talk, (e) writing and defending the dissertation, and (f) carving up the dissertation into papers for publication.

    Interested doctoral students should pre-register at https://lbs.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9nayYxOvux55jQW. The deadline to pre-register is July 15, 2022. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. If you have any questions, please contact Arianna Marchetti (amarchetti@london.edu).
