Doctoral Colloquium

“Beyond Excellence: Integrating AI for Sustainable Business Innovations”

The Doctoral Colloquium of the International Conference on Business and Information (ICBI) has provided local and international doctoral students the opportunity to present their work and engage with their peers and faculty members that is relatively informal but allows for a high-quality intellectual interaction. Experienced management scholars will share their knowledge about undertaking doctoral research and pursuing a career that embraces research. Learning from those scholars and asking them all the questions you have always wanted to ask is a great opportunity. Do not miss this opportunity to learn about the tacit knowledge underlying a doctoral process and to get useful insights on how to complete a doctoral in a successful way and how to develop a career trajectory transitioning out of your doctorate.


  • Exchange and Expand: Exchange knowledge, expand your networks and generate conversations with the leading scholars in business management and organisational studies.
  • Collaborate: Collaborate with your peers, participant speakers and mentors.
    • You can participate in the inaugural session of the ICBI 2024 and learn from a Keynote Speech.
    • You can benefit from workshops specially designed for the doctoral colloquium participants.
  • Connect: This is your opportunity to showcase your research and your scholarly mission to different audiences and to network with renowned scholars in the field and other doctoral students of local and international universities.
