EDAMBA, the European Doctoral Association in Management and Business Administration Annual Meeting 2016 has the title “Beyond academic outputs? Research and multiple doctoral career progression paths in business and management“. Should doctoral education create knowledge capacity that has a direct impact on policy, practice, and society? What type of specific training should be part of a doctoral studies curriculum? As more doctoral students are pursuing careers outside academia, a question also arises whether traditional doctoral programmes are preparing them for such careers in industry, government, and the non-profit sector.
The purpose of this two-day annual meeting is to find answers to some of these questions by bringing together doctoral program directors, academics, business leaders, and doctoral students to reflect on the rapidly changing landscape of doctoral research, training, and careers in business and management.
