Wednesday, September 10, 2014
Oklahoma State University’s Ph.D. in Business for Executives
program and the Watson Graduate School of Management will host the Fourth Annual
International Conference on Engaged Management Scholarship in Tulsa from Sept. 11-14.
Nearly 200 scholars and practitioners from across the world will participate in the
conference organized yearly by the Executive Doctorate in Business Administration
Council (EDBAC), which has broad international representation of executive doctoral
Ramesh Sharda, interim vice dean of the Watson Graduate School and director of OSU’s
Ph.D. in Business for Executives
program, successfully campaigned in June 2012 to bring this year’s conference to
Oklahoma State. Previous conferences have been hosted in Cleveland, England and Atlanta.
“We are proud to host this conference here at Oklahoma State. EDBAC’s decision to
let us host the conference speaks well about our young and growing executive doctorate
program,” Sharda said.
The International Conference on Engaged Management Scholarship has been established
as a central venue for the advancement and sharing of research bridging the knowing-doing
gap in business.
The conference will include faculty, administrators and students from many executive
doctorate programs around the world. It will feature keynote speakers from industry
as well as academia, panel sessions, and research presentations and posters.
The conference will begin with a doctoral student consortium on Thursday, Sept. 11.
A social event will be held at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa to showcase Oklahoma
history and art to the worldwide attendees.
The conference is open to all scholars and practitioners who are actively involved
in practicing engaged management scholarship, but preference will be given to participants
from executive doctorate programs. It is the premier international meeting place for
students, alumni, faculty and managers involved in professional business doctorate
programs around the world.
