The Strategic Leadership & Governance and Behavioral Strategy Interest Groups are jointly offering a three hour Ph.D. Candidate & Junior Faculty Professional Development Workshop. The aim of the workshop is to provide a venue for mid- and senior-career faculty to share their experiences and advice for success early in an academic career.
