Hundreds of leading management and organization scholars will descend upon Philadelphia, and professors from Temple University’s Fox School of Business professors will be among them.

Philadelphia serves as the host city for the 74th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, which runs Aug. 1-5.

More than 25 Fox School professors will participate in the meeting in various capacities, such as presenters, panelists, and distinguished speakers. One of them is David Schuff, who serves as Academic Director of Fox’s Executive DBA program, will serve as a distinguished speaker for Saturday’s session titled, “DBA’s Critical Success Factors: Spanning Research and Practice.” TL Hill, Associate Professor of Strategic Marketing, will be a discussant on that same panel.

“The Academy of Management is a large, interdisciplinary conference. The wide range of faculty participating in the conference demonstrates the diversity of expertise within our school,” said Dr. Schuff, who’s also an Associate Professor of Management Information Systems.

Representatives from Fox School’s Strategic Management department expected to participate include: At “International Management Thought Leadership,” Associate Professor Susan Feinberg will be the distinguished speaker; Gerry F. Lenfest Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Mitrabarun Sarkar will participate in a talk titled, “Business Policy and Strategy Division Dissertation Consortium”; at “An Evolving Landscape: The Reconfiguration of Global Value Chain Activity,” Professor Ram Mudambi will be a discussant; at “CSR and Sustainability in Asia,” Associate Professor Nicolas Dahan will serve as chair; and Associate Professor Sheryl Winston Smith will chair “New Venture Learning Through Accelerators, VCs and Universities,” among others.

Alter Hall, home of the Fox School, is also slated to host a variety of events throughout the meeting, from doctoral consortia to a professional development workshop. Attendees are looking forward to showcasing the accomplishments and innovation of the Fox School.

“It’s exciting to share what we’ve done at Fox in launching the new Executive DBA program and to learn what others are doing,” said Dr. Schuff. “Research-intensive, practice-focused DBA programs are still a novel concept within business schools, especially in the United States. Taking an active role in the community of schools launching these programs is important to our program’s success.”
