GRAMO DOCTORAL TUTORIAL IN MANAGEMENT & ORGANIZATION 2022

The Graduate School of Management and Organization (GRAMO) doctoral tutorial is held October 5-6 2022. The tutorial is co-organized by University of Turku & Åbo Akademi together with Kataja’s GRAMO graduate school in M&O.

While doctoral tutorials in the field of M&O have a long tradition, in the last years, they have not been organized. In 2021, the GRAMO professoral board decided it was time to launch the annual tutorial tradition again, and in so doing, re-create a Finnish scholarly community in the field of M&O.

The objective of the tutorial is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students in the field of M&O to present and discuss their work and to learn how to review and provide feedback to others. Perhaps most importantly, though, this is an opportunity to get to know colleagues from across the Finnish universities, be it PhD students or faculty members, in the spirit of networking and learning.

Doctoral students from all Finnish universities are welcome to submit either (1) their research plan or (2) a paper in the field of management & organization. Submissions from early- to late-stage PhD researchers are welcome, as are both early-stage, work-in-progress and more advanced papers.
