Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium program seeks to help Information Systems doctoral students in the middle part of their doctoral studies (i.e., after their first year of the program) or later part of their doctoral studies (i.e., entering the job market within the next year) to develop an effective career plan based on their personal and professional goals. The consortium has three primary objectives:

  1. Provide networking opportunities for students with peers and faculty
  2. Help students strategize about their research, teaching and career plans
  3. Prepare students for the job market.

The program includes six faculty panels, three for the Senior Doctoral Students and three for the Mid-Stage Doctoral Students track. Panels focus on managing the dissertation and research program, teaching responsibilities and competencies, and career planning. In breakout sessions after each panel, small groups of students will discuss the panel topic with their faculty mentors and fellow students. The intent is for students to apply the panel topic to their personal and professional goals, with input from faculty mentors and peers. We will wrap-up with a discussion of how the lessons might be applied while also achieving an effective work-life balance.
