Application Deadline: February 10, 2012

The Academy of International Business is organizing a Junior Faculty Consortium, which will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2012 from 8:00 am to 4 pm.

All junior faculty active in research and teaching in international business are invited to participate, although preference will be given to those who have been involved in international business teaching and/or research for no more than three years.

The 2012 consortium is being organized by John Mezias (University of Miami). The consortium is being structured to provide lots of opportunities for interaction between junior faculty and senior scholars on the faculty panel, and among junior faculty present in a round table format. There will also be an opportunity for junior faculty to discuss their research programs or specific research projects, with other junior and senior faculty members in small groups.

The faculty panel for the Junior Faculty Consortium will include several distinguished scholars from around the world. A tentative program and a list of faculty panelists will be made available in early 2012.

Submission Requirements:

Please note that space in the program is limited to guarantee the desired level of interaction and learning. To apply, please send an e-mail message (with “AIB Junior Faculty Consortium” in the subject line) to , stating your interest in attending, by February 14, 2012. Please also include the following two documents in the message, for distribution to other participants:

  2. A one-page description of your international business research program, or of a paper or project in process (which you would like input on).
