EAA Job Market, IE Madrid, November 2-3

Posted by SALVADOR CARMONA - Sep 04, 2018

Building Bridges between Young Talent and Academic Institutions: The EAA Job market for accounting academics will take place at IE Business School in Madrid on November 2-3 2018.

The Talent Workshop website is at https://eaa-jobmarket.ie.edu/ and you can see a video of the event at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRj-rjpMrkk&feature=youtu.be.


Institutions of higher learning witness increasing mobility of PhD students and faculty. In addition, to short-term initiatives aiming at providing placement for PhD students and faculty for one semester and/or an academic year, an increasing number of universities and business schools enforce non-inbreeding policies on their PhD students. In turn, the wide implementation of these policies has brought about significant increases in the long-term mobility rate of faculty across countries and regions. Although the Internet provides a helpful venue to advertise opening positions as well as expressions of interest, there is still room for improvement. Combining the strengths of the web and face-to-face initiatives, the Management Committee of the EAA agreed to launch the third edition of its job market, a Talent Workshop, for accounting academics.
