Your Tenure Package: How Do Letter Writers Read and Evaluate It?

Saturday, October 24, 2020 
Time 14:00 - 17:00 UTC
Sponsored by: Competitive Strategy Interest Group

When business schools evaluate a junior professor for tenure, the school typically seeks letters from several prominent individuals in the junior scholar’s area of research.  This half-day workshop is intended to help assistant professors and late-stage doctoral candidates understand and prepare for the tenure process.

The first half of the workshop will feature presentations by prominent senior faculty who have written tenure letters.  They will describe the letter writing process, explain how they evaluate a tenure package and provide advice for junior scholars.  

The second half of the workshop will feature small roundtable discussions where junior scholars will describe their intended research program and receive feedback and advice from the senior scholars.  

This workshop is hosted by the Competitive Strategy Interest Group, and it is open to all conference attendees. Attendees that would like to participate in roundtable discussions should submit an application by September 2.
