Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium is a three-day forum for PhD students from INSEAD and Wharton to present their research and foster collaboration across institutions and disciplines. In the spirit of academic diversity, submissions from all INSEAD and Wharton doctoral programs are invited.

The Consortium includes student presentations, keynote presentations, and panel sessions led by INSEAD and Wharton faculty. Effort is made to give accepted students the opportunity to meet with faculty members either in-person or via video-conference. The Consortium also includes social events both on campus and off-site.

From Wharton, we have Anna GAO, Xufei LIU, and aya SHCHETKINA. Initial planning and date selection will occur shortly. Details will be shared with all PhD students in the coming months.

Testimonials from Consortium Participants

“The Alliance has been awesome for making friends, getting feedback, and making internal deadlines external. I have benefitted from data collaborations and discussions with INSEAD students, as well as learning from faculty from both campuses. Grateful for the opportunity & look forward to continued WINSEAD exchanges!” Chris Bruno, Wharton PhD Student, Multinational Management and Strategy

“This consortium provides me an amazing opportunity to share my research, to receive valuable feedback, and, more importantly, to connect with my future colleagues in academia on the other side of the Alliance. I strongly recommend the Doctoral Consortium to everyone at both schools.” Xinwei Li, INSEAD PhD Student, Finance

The 12th Annual Doctoral Consortium (2023)

The 12th Annual Doctoral Consortium was held in November 2023 on INSEAD’s Singapore campus. The conference was a great success and offered Wharton students an opportunity to present and discuss their research in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment as well as to exchange ideas with the INSEAD PhDs in their field. Participants also received feedback from several faculty from both schools.
