The ItAIS and MCIS Junior Faculty and Doctoral Consortium (JFDC) aims to support doctoral students and researchers at the early stage of their careers in the fields of Business, Management, and Information Systems in order to develop effective career plans based on their personal and professional goals. More specifically, the JFDC has three primary objectives:
The program includes parallel panels, workshops, and plenary sessions. Students and early-stage researchers will be split into small groups according to the nature of the research strategy they are adopting and their career stage in order to promote collaboration.
