Doctoral Consortium

felipe borini

Responsible: Prof. Dr. Felipe Mendes Borini


The SemeAd Doctoral Consortium invites doctoral students to submit their Academic Doctoral Thesis proposals in the following areas: Public Administration; Entrepreneurship; Organizational Strategy; Innovation Management; Organizational Studies; Socioenvironmental Management; Finance; People Management; and Marketing.

Since last year, we have had a new area for submissions focused on Professional Doctoral Thesis proposals. If you are studying for a professional doctorate, submit your proposal by indicating the area “Professional Doctorate,” independently of the thematic area.

All submissions will be examined by the Coordinator of the Consortium and by the Leaders of each one of the areas of the Doctoral Consortium. The most appropriate submissions will be chosen. The jury will be composed of professors, who will present suggestions and reflections on your proposal.

It is important to highlight that submissions follow the SemeAd timetable. However, doctoral students with approved and enrolled proposals will be invited to submit (optional) a more up-to-date version of their project one month before the date of the jury. We are doing this as we know that throughout the submission period up to presentation the doctoral student is working on improving their project. So, we offer the opportunity for the doctoral student to submit the closest version to the current one for examination by the jury.
