Mentoring Doctoral Students

AGBA’s 2020 Doctoral Consortium will focus on mentoring doctoral students hailing from emerging countries. The faculty panel of the 2020 Doctoral Student Consortium will consist of accomplished and globally acclaimed scholars; who have a distinguished scholarly publication record, have served as editors of leading global journals, and/or have experience in supervising doctoral students across western countries such as US, UK, EU, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
 
AGBA’s 2020 Doctoral Consortium is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the world to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges of conducting business research, building a successful academic career in their fields, and to broaden their professional networks on the global stage.
 
Consistent with the developmental mission of AGBA, the consortium is open for Ph.D. students from all over the world, who would be attending its global conference in Turkey. Oneto-one mentoring to Ph.D., students would be provided on the third day of the conference on November 30, 2020.
 
Ideally, doctoral students should have a strong research idea or be close to completing a doctoral dissertation proposal, and be far enough away from finishing their dissertations so that they could make good use of feedback received from their doctoral mentors during the consortium.
 
Kindly contact AGBA’s President and CEO to schedule your mentoring session at least one month before our Turkish conference:
