Doctoral Workshop



The Strategic Management Society is pleased to announce our 8th annual Doctoral Workshop to be held Saturday, November 5, 2011, preceding the Strategic Management Society Conference in Miami, Florida. The Doctoral Workshop will be held at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, site of the SMS Conference.

Participation will be limited to 25 outstanding doctoral students and we are proud to announce that all will receive scholarships partially funded through the generous support of the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies. These scholarships will be offered through competitive entry and review of candidates for the Doctoral Workshop. In recent years, we have received three to four applications for each of the 25 available slots. The scholarships will cover costs of the Doctoral Workshop, with all meals including a Saturday evening reception and dinner, as well as the SMS Annual Conference Registration Fee.
