2016 Annual Meeting

2016 EDAMBA Annual Meeting
University of Kent, Canterbury, UK
August 21-23, 2016

Beyond Academic Outputs?
Research Impact and Multiple Doctoral Career Progression Paths in Business and Management

Assessing the impact of academic research has been an important recent development in the higher education sector. The driving force behind such a development is the belief among policy makers that publicly funded research must at least have some direct, tangible benefit for society.

Notably, this way of thinking about research has increasingly influenced perceptions about the nature of doctoral studies in business and management. It has raised, for example, the question whether doctoral education should focus exclusively on creating academic knowledge to be published in peer reviewed journals.  Should doctoral education instead create knowledge capacity that has a direct impact on policy, practice, and society? In this case, what type of specific training should be part of a doctoral studies curriculum? As more doctoral students these days are pursuing careers outside academia, a question also arises whether traditional doctoral programmes are preparing them for such careers in industry, government, and the non-profit sector.

The purpose of this two-day annual meeting is to find answers to some of these questions by bringing together doctoral program directors, academics, business leaders, and doctoral students to reflect on the rapidly changing landscape of doctoral research, training, and careers in business and management.

Registration Fees: £300 (includes Welcome Cocktails, Conference Dinner and Conference Lunch)
