WELCOME TO SMA


Doctoral Consortium (forthcoming)

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

ABOUT

The SMA Doctoral Consortium is a day long program that will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7, as a virtual event.

Doctoral Consortium Fellows (participants) experience unique learning and networking opportunities designed to help future marketing academicians succeed. Doctoral Consortium Fellows work together with top marketing scholars in professional development and career planning sessions that incorporate research, teaching, and service.

Doctoral students attending the consortium come from leading universities across the United States and abroad. The success of the program is evident by the number of Doctoral Consortium Fellows that return year after year to offer insight and advice to new Fellows. The Doctoral Consortium is in keeping with SMA tradition, offering the attention, hospitality, and warmth that typify our organization.

The registration cost of the Doctoral Consortium is $39. After October 15, the registration fee is $59.

In order to be considered as a SMA Doctoral Consortium Fellow, students first must be nominated by one of their university’s doctoral faculty members. Third and fourth year students will benefit most from participation. Nominations must be sent directly via email to the consortium chairs listed below.  Once a nominee is confirmed as eligible, the next step is for the student to complete the registration form and pay the registration fee (payable to the Society for Marketing Advances). The form provides directions for payment.
