CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The 8th EURAM Early Career Colloquium continues a tradition of successful colloquia in seven European cities with bringing it to Africa. Co-hosted by two leading institutions of higher management education, the venue of this exciting interface-event will be in the twin-towns of Rabat and Salé, Morocco’s capital region.
The main objective of this colloquium is to offer a platform for early career management scholars from Europe and Africa, who will experience the proven blend of informal get-together, discussion on professional challenges, expert advice, and paper development session (including the option for submission of revised manuscripts to a dedicated EECC track at the EURAM 2017 in Glasgow).
The theme of the EECC in Rabat-Salé is “Impact”. Talks and interventions of our mentors and experts as well as group discussions will focus on and challenge dominant strategies of assessing, simulating, and actually exerting influence in academia and beyond.
