NYU’s Stern School of Business, one of the country’s top business schools, invites talented scholars who are underrepresented in our academic community and who are completing their PhD in 2021 to apply to participate in our inaugural Diverse Pathways in Academia, to take place January 23 and 24, 2020. This all-expense paid trip to New York City will provide psychology and sociology doctoral students with insight and guidance on pursuing a career as a business school faculty member. Participants will come out of the program better prepared to enter and navigate the faculty job market, and will learn about business school as an academic option.
Many of our faculty members hold doctorates in fields such as psychology, sociology, statistics, mathematics, computer science and other non-business subjects. They have found a stimulating and satisfying academic community at Stern. For example, psychologists and sociologists contribute findings of great relevance and importance to the study and practice of management by conducting research on topics such as identity, emotions, groups, diversity, judgment and decision making, person perception, and a wide range of other topics. Others, specialists in judgement and decision making, cognitive psychology and social psychology, use their knowledge and training for research on marketing, including consumer behavior and decision-making.
