4. Doc SIG Special Session - “Campus Visits: A Discussion of Do's and Don'ts”
You've been invited for a campus visit. Now what? For many doctoral students at Summer AMA, an invitation to present their research and interact with faculty at a prospective school is the next step in their academic path. This session is designed to offer Ph.D. students and candidates insights into the campus visit experience from two perspectives:
Junior faculty perspective
Dr. Robin Soster (Assistant Professor at the University of Arkansas) and Dr. Ali Besharat (Assistant Professor at the University of Denver) will share their advice on what to expect and how best to prepare for your campus visit.
Senior faculty perspective
Drawing from their extensive experience evaluating candidates, Dr. Katherine (Kay) Lemon (Accenture Professor and Chair of the Marketing Dept. at Boston College) and Dr. Mark Houston (Professor of Marketing Eunice and James L. West Chair of American Enterprise at TCU) will discuss what they look for in a candidate.
Together, the panel will share with you the top 5 Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to campus visits. We invite you to join us for what will surely be an insightful and beneficial discussion for Ph.D. students at all stages in their training.
The session will conclude with a review of the most recent Who Went Where survey trends from the Doc SIG Vice Chair of Research, Hillary Mellema (Kent State University).
When: Sunday, August 11th from 3:15 to 4:45.
We hope these events listed above will add value and enjoyment to your Summer AMA experience. See you in Boston!
