    SAP Doctoral and Early Career Program on August 04, 2023 at AOM Boston 2023

    Call for Applications

    Organizers: Ashley Hockensmith, Daniel Gäckle, Jennifer Sloan, & Lorenzo Skade

    We are happy to announce that Strategizing Activities and Practices Interest Group (SAP IG) invites scholars to the upcoming SAP Doctoral and Early Career Program (ECP). Get ready for a compelling one-day event tailored to guide doctoral and early career scholars through the “academic jungle” of the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

    The ECP will be held on Friday, August 04, 2023, and it will span a full day of panels, workshops, roundtables, and networking opportunities. The day will bring together doctoral students and junior faculty, who are interested in SAP-related topics, methods, and conversations.

    The ECP goes above and beyond the traditional early-career consortiums, as it connects the workshops within broader SAP events and fosters the development of a supportive community of scholars.

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

    Where: Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston, 2023

    When: Friday, August 04, 2023

Additionally, the day will end with an exclusive Q&A session with this year’s patron Professor Davide Nicolini (Warwick Business School), followed by a seat at the official SAP Community Dinner. In this way, the day provides multiple opportunities for networking and professional development. Please note that an application to the program requires the commitment to participate in all of the scheduled activities.
