The Center for International Business Education and Research at The George Washington University (GW-CIBER), housed at the School of Business, successfully completed its fourth Summer Doctoral Institute (SDI) for research and study on “Institutions, the State and Development.” The program, launched in summer 2008, provides leading doctoral students from across the United States an opportunity to conduct research in collaboration with GW faculty experts.
During the program, which ran from June 1 through July 27, participants were housed together on the GW campus to promote interaction and the development of a scholarly community. The location also allowed the students take full advantage of Washington, D.C., experts and resources in conducting their research.
The nine PhD students in this year’s program represented a broad range of doctoral areas of study, including political science, organizational behavior, management strategy, international affairs, industrial engineering and public policy. Each of the doctoral students was paired with a GW faculty mentor for a two-month research project to produce a coauthored article for a top-tier journal in their discipline on the GW-CIBER theme of “Institutions, the State and Development.” Four GWSB faculty participated in this year’s SDI program: Hein Bogaard, assistant professor of international business; Liesl Riddle, associate professor of international business & international affairs, and associate dean of MBA programs; Jorge Rivera, associate professor of strategic management & public policy; and Jennifer Spencer, associate professor of international business and director of GW-CIBER.
