On January30th 2015, DCU Business School successfully hosted its annual doctoral colloquium.
In total, 35 PhD students in the field of HRM/Organisational Psychology, Management, Marketing, Economics, and Accounting and Finance attended this exciting full-day event. Following a welcome address by the Director of Doctoral Studies, Dr Janine Bosak, the audience which consisted of PhD students and faculty members enjoyed the encouraging key note presentation entitled “Making your way in Academia” by Professor David Collings, Professor of HRM and Winner of this year’s DCU President Research Award.
The stimulating atmosphere carried over into the coffee break where PhD students had the opportunity to network with other students and faculty members. Afterwards the attendees split up into subgroups by academic field and PhD students had the opportunity to listen to and comment on the work presented by fellow PhD students. These sessions were facilitated by members of the DCU Business School faculty (Professor Colm O’Gorman; Professor Ronan Powell; Dr Malcolm Brady; Dr Janine Bosak).
It was exciting to see the variety in research questions, utilised methodologies, and the data collected, which in return triggered a lot of questions and an interesting discussion in the rooms. Following a nice lunch in the DCU restaurant 1838 the students had the choice to attend either the workshop “Literature and PhD Structure: Reviewing Organising and Organising Reviews” (Dr Brian Harney) or the mock viva “Preparing for and Handling the Viva” (Dr Steven Kilroy; Dr Janine Bosak).
Finally, a key element of our PhD programme is industry relevance and employability and therefore the final lecture was focused on “Negotiations and Dispute Management in Research Teams”, delivered by Dr Jan Bosak, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer of Elix Aviation Capital Limited.
The DCU Business School Dean of Research, Professor Colm O’Gorman then provided the closing address. The success of the doctoral colloquium was a team effort and would not have been possible without the help and contribution of numerous colleagues and students, in particular our new research administrator Margaret Galuszynska. Many thanks to everyone for making this a very special day!
