IJSSE Doctoral Consortium on Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management
The IJSSE Doctoral Consortium on Entrepreneurship and Small Business Managegment represents a unique opportunity for doctoral students to present their thesis proposals and obtain useful insight into how their work can be improved and progressed as well as an opportunity for bouncing ideas off on experienced faculty.
The workshop also facilitates the exchange of research experiences and new ideas in the fields of entrepreneurship and small business. The IJSSE Doctoral Consortium is truly a meeting place for both new and experienced researchers from all over the world and an ideal place to network. At IJSSE we encourage students from all over the world to apply.
The consortium will be organized around key challenges and questions offered by the participants. Senior faculty will be assigned to the specific topics to offer advice and experiences. The best project proposal will be awarded a prize of $200.
Doctoral candidates interested in attending and presenting their research proposal (not the result of completed research) should send an abstract, including information on when they commenced their Ph.D. study and when they expect to complete.
The abstract should be organized according to the following guidelines: it should explain (i) the topic and research questions of the research, (ii) the theoretical background, (iii) the proposed methodology, (iv) expected contribution to the field, and (v) three key challenges and questions you would like to discuss at the doctoral consortium.
Please Note - students need not present a paper at the Conference itself to participate, although this is encouraged. The conference fee includes one year’s full membership in IJSSE.
