Call for papers

Trans-Atlantic Doctoral Conference is an annual event held exclusively for doctoral students from leading business schools in North America and Europe to provide a unique opportunity to meet fellow students and discuss their current research.

Presentations are divided into seven subject areas:


- Accounting

- Economics

- Finance

- Management Science and Operations

- Marketing

- Organizational Behavior

- Strategy and Entrepreneurship


In cases when your school is not on the invitation list, you still can join the conference given that we have received your sponsorship letter from a London Business School faculty.


This conference has been organised and hosted by London Business School since 2001 and has grown consistently in its size and reputation among doctoral students in top business schools. The specific goals of this conference are to:

- Facilitate the exchange of research ideas on an international level

- Help prepare PhD students for a career in one of the world’s top business schools

- Encourage the development of scholarly networks
