The Academy of International Business is organizing a Junior Faculty Consortium, which will be held on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 from 9:00 am to 4:30 p.m.

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 2013 consortium is being organized by Udo Zander, Stockholm School of Economics. 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.

A tentative program will be made available in early 2013. The faculty panel for the Junior Faculty Consortium includes distinguished international business scholars with extensive publication records and experience, Deans of business schools, and AIB Fellows (please note additions and changes are possible to this list):

Udo Zander, Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden (Chair)
Ingmar Björkman, Aalto University, Finland
Nakiye Boyacigiller, Sabanci University, Turkey
Dana Minbaeva, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
