DCU Business School hosted its annual doctoral colloquium on November 25th 2016.
PhD students from the various groups within DCU Business School – HRM/Organisational Psychology, Management, Marketing, Economics, and Accounting and Finance – participated in the exciting full-day event.
Following a welcome address by the Director of Doctoral Studies, Dr Janine Bosak, this year’s Doctoral Colloquium kicked off with an excellent key note presentation entitled ‘Finding your home as a scholar’ by Professor Anne Huff who recently joined DCU Business School and who is a former President of the Academy of Management. Anne provided invaluable advice to PhD students in terms of how to publish their research and establish themselves as writers and members of a scientific community.
The rest of the morning was filled with scholars showcasing their research with these sessions being facilitated by members of the DCU Business School faculty, Dr Eric Clinton, Dr John Connolly and Dr Janine Bosak.
After a networking lunch in 1838 Restaurant, our PhD students had the choice to attend one of two excellent workshops. Dr Teresa Hogan and Dr Steven Kilroy delivered a workshop entitled “From PGR4 top PGR8: Workshop on the final stages of the PhD” while Eoghan McConalogue gave a workshop on “Working with long documents”.
The event ended with a networking coffee, where students had the opportunity to exchange experiences related to their research and get insightful tips from fellow PhD students and staff members. In short, the 2016 doctoral colloquium was a wonderful event to which numerous colleagues and students kindly contributed to – in particular Margaret Galuszynska – and a sincere thanks goes out to all of them.
