This workshop will bring together academic leaders responsible for enhancing research capacities, promoting a research culture and leading doctoral programs in business schools in emerging economies. Deans, Directors, Deputy Deans, Research Directors and Department Chairs of business schools committed to such endeavors are welcome to attend.
The workshop will explore means to achieving excellence in research at the local and global level by:
Enhancing academic leaders' understanding of how to develop and improve their faculty's research capacity in a manner that is highly relevant in local and global contexts;
Providing a forum for exchange of ideas, best practices and challenges among participants and panelists; and
Building networks among participants and panelists for exchange of expertise, faculty, and doctoral students.
The RCW will include panel discussions on opportunities and challenges that business schools with more limited resources face and an exchange of best practices developed and adopted by participants' business schools. It will also provide consultative forums to help attendees design practical plans to build and strengthen viable and relevant research programs in resource-constrained business schools. The RCW is especially relevant for business schools in emerging economies that want to help their faculty become more research active or take their research to the next level. All are welcome, and we particularly invite participants from the Middle East, Africa and Asia, given the location of this year's workshop.
