SUMS 2nd Annual Doctoral Conference

Sheffield University Management School is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual Doctoral Conference.

After a very successful inaugural conference in 2017 we are pleased to announce that the 2nd conference will take place on Wednesday 12th September 2018.

At the conference SUMS doctoral students will present their research and receive feedback from fellow PGR students and members of academic staff.

Format of the Day

The conference will commence with an opening plenary and will be followed by sessions streamed by division and/or research centres. PGR students will be presenting to subject specialists within their division. The conference will count as a component of the new Doctoral Training in Management module for PGRs who started in 2017 onwards. However we strongly request that all PGR students attend and present their research.

All presenters will be allocated a 15 minute slot. Within this 15 minute slot, there will be 10 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions.

The conference will include a keynote from an eminent academic followed by a social event to round off the day.

Submissions for the conference are now closed.  Thank you to all those students that have submitted an abstract for inclusion at the 2018 Conference.


If you are a PhD student due to commence studies in 2018 and would like to attend the conference please complete the booking form.
