When: November 21-24, 2013
Where: Spencer Leadership Centre, London, Canada

The PhD Sustainability Academy, co-hosted by the Ivey Business School and Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS), convenes 15 promising PhD students and 5 senior researchers. Each student receives intensive feedback on their research project. The participants and faculty members represent a range of management disciplines and methodologies. This Academy represents one of the foremost learning and networking events for students researching social and environmental issues.

"It's true: This is NOT vacation for a week. And it is not for the faint-hearted. In all truthfulness, it is the most intense and honest feedback I have ever had - bar none. The time is dedicated to scholar boot camp and the range of backgrounds is very enriching. Research in sustainability can be a lonely venture, but I found my people at the PhD Academy.
