Doctoral Consortium

August 28-30, 2013

Doctoral students in business-to-business programs from universities around the world are welcome to participate in the IMP 2013 Doctoral Consortium. The three day event will be divided between seminars (on marketing theory, analytical and case research techniques, and paper writing) and student presentations.

The aim of the IMP Doctoral Consortium is to create a forum for deep, informal discussions between Ph.D. students interested in IMP research and experienced IMP researchers. Additionally, a primary goal of this year’s consortium is to bring traditional IMP European-based doctoral students together with B2B marketing doctoral students from the United States, Asia and South America to begin the development of global research networks that will investigate all aspects of B2B marketing around the world.

The IMP Doctoral Consortium takes place August 28-30, 2013; i.e., during three days immediately prior to the main IMP conference held August 31 – September 2, 2013.

  • Research area
