    Call for applications (1st July)

    For the 5th time in a row, the Strategy-as-Practice Interest Group (SAP) is inviting scholars to the SAP Doctoral and Early Career Program (ECP). While AOM will be going virtual this year, that doesn't mean that we are not committed to assuring participants a compelling one-day event specially tailored to guide doctoral and early career scholars who are interested in researching SAP-related topics and methods.

    The ECP is expected to be held on Friday, August 7th, and is planned to consist of virtual panels, workshops, roundtables and networking opportunities.

    What: SAP Doctoral and Early Career Program (1-day)

    Where: Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management 2020

    When: Scheduled to be on Friday, August 7, 2020

    Who: Doctoral students, post-docs and junior faculty

    Preliminary program: This year's program will include three carefully chosen Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) to enhance participants' SAP-related knowledge and provide opportunities for engaging similar minds. Additionally, it will include private mentor-mentee feedback sessions with assigned mentors, creating an invaluable networking opportunity for junior scholars. In this way, the day provides multiple opportunities both for networking and for professional development despite being virtual.

    Please note that an application to the program requires a commitment to participate in all of the scheduled activities.

    This year's preliminary program:

    • Welcome to the ECP
    • PDW: Digital strategizing
    • PDW: International Early Academic Careers
    • PDW: Qualitative Analysis Boot Camp
    • Remarks of the patron (Professor Eero Vaara)
    • Mentor-mentee feedback session

    Application: The deadline for the application is July 1st. To apply, please send your application to and include information on yourself, your career stage, your research project and it's fit with SAP (if applicable), and why you want to take part in the program. Space is limited to 20 participants.
