IE Business School held its 4th Annual Doctoral Consortium on May 19, 2017. As a sign of the continued growth that it has experienced since its inception, the Doctoral Consortium featured 9 focused tracks, including Operations, Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Creativity/Cognition, Entrepreneurship, HR, OB, and Strategy. In addition, for the first time, travel grants were offered, which attracted the interest of a more internationally diverse set of doctoral students. The day began with a plenary session hosted by keynote speaker Prof. Erkko Autio of Imperial College, London, followed by the roundtable presentations in the various tracks. The day closedwith a Panel Discussion themed «Grabbing Research Funding Opportunities», including discussions from Professors Caterina Moschieri, Cristina Cruz, Kriti Jain, Luis Diestre, and Erkko Autio, moderated by Marco Tombetta.
The student organizing committee for the Consortium comprised Sreyaa Guha (Marketing) and Maude Praca (Entrepreneurship).
