Doctoral Consortium

DSI 2022 – 53rd Annual Meeting of the Decision Science Institute
Resiliency and Adaptability for a Better Global Future

Who is the consortium for?

The DSI Doctoral Consortium provides a unique opportunity for current Ph.D. students to learn about the academic job market process and what life is like as a faculty member. Attendees will hear from an esteemed group of junior and senior faculty members who will share experiences and tips for successfully navigating these formative years. Attendees will also have an opportunity to network with fellow Ph.D. students.

The program will include:

  • Presentations by senior faculty on publication strategies in OM/SCM journals.
  • A session on how to craft an impactful research agenda.
  • A session on teaching tips and tricks and how to effectively engage with students in global settings.
  • A session on “professionalism in academia,” including how to transition from a doctoral student to a full-time faculty, manage competing objectives, manage time and set priorities, and establish relationships with industry and professional organizations.
  • Networking opportunities.
