Formed in 2011, the SEI Consortium is an initiative of faculty from Europe's leading business schools, including London Business School, HEC Paris, Bocconi University, Copenhagen Business School, Imperial College London, and ETH Zurich to help advance the research frontier and stimulate the academic labour market. To this end, it supports an annual faculty workshop and a Doctoral Consortium. For these events, it brings together faculty from a broad range of European institutions.
The SEI Doctoral Consortium provides doctoral students at European universities with a unique opportunity to present their dissertation-stage research to, and receive developmental feedback from, leading strategy, innovation, and entrepreneurship scholars, including the editors of many of the top journals in the field. Ample opportunities for informal mentoring and networking will be provided outside the formal student presentations, including coffee breaks, lunches, and dinners.
