Business School to host Ph.D. recruitment fair and conference

The University of Miami Business School will host the Miami DocNet Conference on Monday, Oct. 14.

Participants will hear admissions directors, faculty and students from some of the best business schools worldwide speak about the opportunities and advantages that come along with having a Ph.D. in business.

DocNet is a global consortium of business Ph.D. programs that grants doctoral degrees in business administration and economics. According to its website, the organization’s purpose is to “promote doctoral education in business throughout the world” by educating students about potential careers. With a variety of different perspectives, this event allows participants to network with people who may have careers they would like to pursue.

Nan Yang, a professor of management at the Business school, is one of the three professors speaking on the panel.

“I am very excited to hear from the students that are interested in applying and I’m looking forward to hearing the different perspectives of the Ph.D. applicants,” said Yang.

Associate accounting professor Miguel Minutti-Meza and associate professor of marketing Caglar Irmak will join Yang on the panel as well as the student Ph.D. candidates Melina Vosse, Matthew A Phillips and Benjamin Borenstein.

The event begins with registration taking place from 4:30 – 5 p.m, followed by the faculty and Ph.D. student panel from 5-6 p.m. At 6 p.m, there will be a recruitment fair, which ends at 8 p.m.
