The PhD Project Management Doctoral Students Association was created on August 11, 1997 in Boston, Massachusetts as a system of support and a national network for African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Native Americans in the process of pursuing doctoral degrees in Management at universities in the United States of America.

Members of the association voluntarily assume a responsibility to offer moral support and encouragement to African-American, Hispanic-American, and Native American Management doctoral students as they pursue their degrees and take their place in the teaching and research profession. The members serve as mentors to new doctoral students as they enter the association. They act as mentors to their students upon attainment of a teaching position. Additionally, members maintain the highest standards of scholarship in their profession.

In addition to the Native Scholars series, I have been working with the NMSU Native American Business Student Association as an advisor as they prepare for their job interview competition at the American Indian Business Leaders conference in Phoenix, Arizona, from March 31 to April 2nd. I will also be manning the table for the PhD Project at this conference. If any of you happen to be near Wildhorse Pass Hotel at that  time, stop by to visit!

As we all know, the PhD Project mission extends beyond simply adding more faculty of color within business schools, we should also serve both as role models for our students and as credible scholars among our peers. The Indian Resource Development Program at NMSU is sponsoring the Native Scholars Series here to promote work by American Indian researchers at the university. I am the series first presenter. More information is available here:

Hello MDSA members,


Please find information on CARMA's upcoming Methods workshops this summer.  I have already registered and hope to see some of you there! 


I am pleased to send you information about our upcoming Summer Short Courses Plus Program on management and organizational research methods topics being hosted in May of 2011 by the Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) at Wayne State University. These courses will be offered at one of our partner schools, Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.  As you will see below, the topics of these nine Short Courses include introductory and advanced structural equation methods, multilevel analysis, multilevel theory and measurement, meta-analysis, social network analysis, survey design/data collection using the internet, testing interactions with linear regression, and grounded theory methods and analysis.  And, this year our Short Courses Plus Program will also include panel sessions, tutorials and Ask the Expert sessions.
CARMA is an interdisciplinary center with a management/organizational emphasis that is now celebrating its thirteenth year of operation.  More than 1,000 faculty and students from universities throughout the world have attended CARMA Short Courses since the summer of 2004.  Also, nearly 300 different universities have participated in the CARMA Consortium Webcast and International Video Library Programs since 2005.  More information about CARMA and the events below can be found at our website:
Overview of Courses and Instructors
Each short course in the Short Courses Plus Program will last two and a half days. They include an equal balance of lecture and hands-on experience with an emphasis on the application of the method. We have a very talented set of instructors for our Short Courses who will help you not only learn the technical details of the research method or analysis technique you will be studying, but they will also help you understand how it is being applied in management and organizational research.  Our instructors include several former editors and current editorial board members of top management journals.

If any of you are interested in social network analysis we invite you to come to the LINKS Center workshop this summer. We've got a pretty good lineup of teachers this year and fulltime students pay only half price. The largest session is capped at 50 participants, so try to register early if you can. The deadline is May 15 and there's a 20% early-bird discount for registering before April 15. Hope some of you can come. Here's the link:

I am extremely excited to report that my very own cohort member Brandon Ofem and some of his colleagues from the University of Kentucky have just received notification that they were awarded a $458,553 grant for their research entitled " The Cognitive and Relational Drivers of Organizational Action and Innovation: A Study of Economic Development Organizations in a Persistently Distressed Region." I'm sure if you want to know more about this collaborative effort between several departments and disciplines within and external to UK, Brandon would be glad to talk to you about it. Send him a shout out when you get a chance.
