DCU Centre for Family Business PhD Scholars to attend Global Entrepreneurship Research Conference
PhD scholars from the DCU Centre for Family Business, Catherine Faherty and Vanessa Diaz, have been awarded to attend and present at a globally recognised, highly competitive entrepreneurship conference this June.
Ms Diaz and Ms Faherty were 2 of 25 doctoral students worldwide invited to participate at the annual entrepreneurship Doctoral Consortium. Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference (BCERC) attracts more than 350 entrepreneurial scholars who convene annually for the three day conference, which will be held in Boston, Massachusetts this year.
Over 220 papers are presented each year and Ms Diaz and Ms Faherty will present their paper at the conference and share their research interests at the doctoral consortium, held in conjunction with the conference.
Ms Faherty and Ms Diaz submitted their doctoral consortium application and paper abstract in 2014. The consortium unites future entrepreneurship educators and scholars with established leaders and researchers in the field.
Ms Diaz had this to say upon hearing the news:
“I am truly honoured to be selected to participate in the 2015 Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference Doctoral Colloquium. I feel privileged to be given the chance to share my research at the world’s leading Entrepreneurship research conference. This is an invaluable opportunity for my academic career and I hope to promote the quality of research carried out at the DCU Centre for Family Business.”
Ms Diaz’s PhD topic focuses on long-term orientation in family businesses and Ms Faherty’s PhD topic is on innovation in family businesses. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the conference, having been founded by Babson College in 1981. The conference and consortium take place between 10th and 13th of June, 2015.
