Doctoral Internationalization Consortia

The Doctoral Internationalization Consortia are a series of consortia in the functional areas of business sponsored by the Centers for International Business Education and Research at Duke University, Purdue University, University of California - Los Angeles, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Washington. The purpose of these consortia is to provide doctoral students in all functional areas of business an international perspective regarding the major issues and research questions that are related to their disciplines. The consortia will bring doctoral students together with prominent faculty whose traditional areas or research has not been international in scope, but who have recently internationalized their work. Students will attend talks conducted by faculty members as well as participate in group discussion sessions in which international research agendas are develop

Student Participants
Twenty-four students from quality institutions are selected to participate in the Consortium.*  Those selected will be outstanding students who have not concentrated on the international dimensions of the subject. To qualify, students should be at an intermediate stage of their doctoral program, (i.e., beyond the first year, but not yet at the dissertation stage). Students will be selected on the basis of two major criteria:

  1. Academic qualifications and recommendations, and
  2. Major areas of interest within the discipline.
