In the quest for greater global recognition and meeting the changing expectations of the key stakeholders many business schools in the developing economies have been laying greater emphasis on research in the recent years, demanding higher research outputs from their faculty members and attempting to improve the quality of the doctoral program. However, these attempts have met with sporadic success owing to various reasons. The academic leadership of these schools continue to face many hurdles and are in search for effective solutions. Recognizing that improving scholarship by enhancing research capacities is one of the most critical challenges facing the business schools in the developing countries, the Academy of International Business is organizing a workshop on strengthening the doctoral program and improving research culture in the developing country business schools, which will be held on Saturday, June 27, 2015 from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm.
All academic leaders (directors / deans / faculty) responsible for enhancing research capacities, promoting a research culture and leading the doctoral programs in the business schools of the developing economies are invited to participate.
The workshop is being structured to provide lots of opportunities for interaction among directors, deans and senior scholars around the globe to share ideas and best practices, discuss and brainstorm and come up with an agenda for collaborative actions that are likely to be useful in improving the research environment and culture, strengthening the doctoral programs, enhancing the research capacities and enhancing the quality research output in the business schools of the developing economies.
The faculty panel for the workshop includes distinguished management scholars and administrators with extensive research and academic leadership experiences in leading business schools around the world (please note additions and changes are possible to this list):
