Pre-Proposal PhD Consortium

This consortium will take place on Saturday, November 23 from 8 am – 12 noon. Lunch is included.

Who Is The Consortium For?

The Doctoral Student Consortium for Pre-Proposal Defense Students at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Decision Sciences Institute is designed specifically for doctoral students in the early stages of their Ph.D. program. The Consortium provides an environment in which doctoral students can learn more about succeeding in their doctoral program, managing time successfully, finding a dissertation topic, finding an advisor, entering the academic profession, and participating in and getting the most out of the Decision Sciences Institute and its activities. The Consortium will include interactive discussion sessions aimed at these goals. Our mission is to help you make the most of your doctoral program and establish professional networks with colleagues who share similar research interests.
