Mathew Joseph Emerging Scholar Award 2019 – Results announced!

The 2019 Who Went Where Survey is out!

We request all students in the job-seeking stage of their doctoral programs to complete the survey here!

This year we are encouraging all candidates who were on the job market regardless of the current status of their job search process to participate in this survey. Please consider finishing the survey even if you have not yet received a job offer, not yet accepted a job offer, or even if you have accepted a non-academic job offer. It will give future candidates a better idea of what to expect. More information on the Who Went Where Survey is available here.

Thank You for a fantastic 2019 Winter AMA!

Dear AMA DocSIG members,

Thank you very much for making 2019 Winter AMA a huge success!!

This year we had five events and all of them were simply amazing!

Many of us participated in our already classic Pay Your Own Way dinner and we all had a lot of fun celebrating friends’ successes. The Mentor Networking Breakfast broke attendance records for both faculty and students, and we almost run out of chairs! The Reception and after dinner with the Selling and Sales Management SIG were extraordinary. Last but not least, our First Winter Special Session on how to prepare for Summer AMA interviews was the talk of the Sunday!

The reason why all the events were a huge success is because of YOU. Thank you for participating in the events as you were able to – AMA DocSIG would not exist without you!

I also want to personally thank the AMA DocSIG team for putting so many hours into making all of this possible.

We also want to thank all the faculty members that took the time to not only come to the Mentor Breakfast, but also to our other events, as panelist or otherwise. We sincerely appreciate your unconditional support!
