Our mission extends beyond conventional academic discourse, aiming to sculpt a nurturing ground for scholarly development, collaboration, and innovation in the vast expanse of management research.

We aim to spotlight and support outstanding research by doctoral students in various domains of management, including but not limited to Operations Management, Entrepreneurship, Finance and Accounting, Economics and Public Policy, Information Systems, Marketing, Organizational Behavior, Human Resources Management, and Strategy. By doing so, we encourage a tradition of rigorous and impactful research.

The conference is dedicated to enabling direct engagement between upcoming researchers and distinguished academicians from both national and international borders. This interaction aims to provide doctoral candidates with critical feedback, enabling them to refine their research with an eye toward publication and broader dissemination.
One of our core objectives is to cultivate an environment conducive to collaborative efforts among researchers from diverse institutional backgrounds. We believe that interdisciplinary and cross-institutional collaborations are pivotal in advancing management research, addressing complex problems, and fostering innovation.
Reflecting the multifaceted nature of management research, the conference welcomes submissions across a spectrum of methodological approaches, including analytical, empirical, quantitative, qualitative, and conceptual studies. This inclusive approach ensures a rich, varied discourse capable of advancing the frontiers of management knowledge

Through these objectives, the Doctoral Research Conference 2024 seeks to cultivate a vibrant community of researchers, foster innovative research, and contribute significantly to the global body of knowledge in management sciences.
