    Tuesday, August 3 – Wednesday, August 4, 2021 

    9:00 AM-12:00 (noon) EST 


    The 2021 Virtual New Doctoral Student Consortium (NDSC) is currently accepting registrants for its Professional Development Workshop (PDW) at the AOM Virtual Annual Meeting. Established in 1997, the NDSC is the only cross-disciplinary AOM Annual Meeting event designed specifically for first and second-year doctoral students, as well as those considering the doctoral path. Open to members of all AOM divisions, this interactive session is designed to integrate participants into the AOM academic community and to provide a foundation for excelling in doctoral life. This year, the NDSC is embracing the opportunity to go online and connect new doctoral students in a virtual format. The NDSC will run across two days: 

    • Tuesday, August 3rd: 9:00am-12:00 (noon) EST Session ID# 11182 
    • Wednesday, August 4th: 9:00am-12:00 (noon) EST Session ID# 17413 


    Sessions will include:  

    • Informational presentations on topics such as succeeding in a doctoral program, publishing research, and managing an academic career  
    • Networking opportunities with fellow doctoral students and established scholars in small breakout groups during the consortium 
    • A chance to meet doctoral students from around the world with similar research interests and backgrounds - creating a sense of community within the larger AOM conference  


    The deadline to register online is June 24th, 2021.   

    • Pre-registration is required for this workshop as space is limited to 110 participants. 
    • We recommend registering as soon as possible as spots have filled up very quickly in the past.
