Centre for Building Sustainable Value

10th Annual PhD Sustainability Academy

When: November 9-12, 2017
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 senior researchers championing path-breaking research on sustainability across multiple disciplines using diverse theoretical and methodological approaches. 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.

“The discussions were intense and stimulating! I think everyone came back from the Academy with a myriad of new research ideas as well as a set of new friends.” - Magali Delmas, ARCS President and 2014 PhD Sustainability Academy Faculty Mentor
"The promise: to get very generous feedback on your research, in a community that deeply cares about you, people and the planet. The cost: friendships for life." - Maja Tampe, MIT Sloan School of Management and 2015 PhD Sustainability Academy Fellow
