The International Management Division will offer a Paper Development Workshop at the forthcoming Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, August 5, 2017 from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm.

The purpose of this PDW is to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their current research papers in the field of international management.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a group discussion facilitated by one or more senior scholars familiar with the topic and/or methods used. Furthermore, senior faculty members will provide detailed feedback to authors, including suggestions on how to improve their papers. Please note that, to ensure a high quality of interaction, space will be limited.
