Doctoral Consortium

The Service Special Interest Group (SERVSIG) of the American Marketing Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the 29th SERVSIG Doctoral Consortium, preceding the Frontiers in Service Conference, hosted by Maastricht University.​ The consortium will begin with a welcome reception on Wednesday, June 14th, and will continue with full day sessions on Thursday, June 15th at Maastricht University.

The consortium is designed to help doctoral students and new faculty succeed in their careers.
