The 2017 Academy of International Business Junior Faculty Consortium will be held on July 2, 2017 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

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

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 roundtable 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 2017 Junior Faculty Consortium includes distinguished international business scholars with extensive publication records and experience.
