EDAMBA 2008 ANNUAL MEETING & GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Newcastle University, U.K.
August 31 – September 2, 2008
Building Research Capacity through Doctoral Education
The European Doctoral Programmes Association in Management and Business Administration (EDAMBA) and Newcastle University Business School are delighted to invite you to the EDAMBA Annual Meeting and General Assembly to be held in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK on August 31 – September 2, 2008.
This year’s annual meeting will place doctoral education in the context of one the most important issues facing business and management education worldwide: the maintenance and expansion of its research capacity.
Part of this arises from the demographic profile of Business School faculty, which means that many schools are likely to face severe difficulties in recruiting the desired number of appropriately qualified staff.
At the same time, Business Schools are under increasingly intense pressure to deliver on a variety of fronts—including income generation, executive education, undergraduate student satisfaction—which have in some way to be achieved without sacrificing the research capability that is necessary for academic credibility and staff retention.
Added to this are demands for a greater degree of engagement with business and for research to be more relevant to the concerns of managers and policy-makers. In all of this, the extent and nature of doctoral-level education plays a key role, and the annual meeting will offer participants the opportunity to discuss the many issues faced by doctoral programmes in the challenging years ahead.
