ESADE is an academic institution that inspires and empowers individuals and organizations to develop innovative forms of socially responsible leadership, with the aim of building a better future.

Business schools are assuming an increasingly important role.

Our institutions have a responsibility to educate global leaders and provide them with economic and business understanding in terms of legitimacy and social impact, cultivating entrepreneurship and encouraging the creation of more sustainable business models.

The Assembly this year takes on special significance, as the conference theme emphasizes the importance of building bridges of cooperation, taking advantage of the globalization process to establish stronger links between institutions and strengthen them so that these develop and acquire the skills needed to grow in an increasingly global world and they can better serve their communities.

CLADEA is a great platform to promote various forms of learning and collaboration between academics and institutions as well as the key organization to strengthen the network of Latin American schools, so they are increasingly relevant in the global academic environment.

We therefore express to our deluded commitment to make your stay in Barcelona it very helpful, from all points of view.

Doctoral Colloquium

The Doctoral Colloquium is developed in the framework of the Annual Meeting of CLADEA, whose goal is to provide doctoral students the opportunity to share and discuss their research with a panel of distinguished scholars of international renown.

The doctoral colloquium consists of a set of concurrent sessions, organized according to the theme of the approved work, during which doctoral students present their dissertation proposals. The panel members will provide guidelines and suggestions that will help identify the strengths and weaknesses of these proposals, to improve the content and prepare for the final defense of the thesis before its courts. Equally important, the symposium will allow doctoral students meet professors from prestigious universities and their authorities involved in the assembly each year CLADEA.

Doctoral projects received for the Doctoral Colloquium will be subject to a process of anonymous review by an international jury, which will select the works. Accepted papers will become part of the aforementioned concurrent sessions for presentation to a distinguished panel.

After the presentations, approximately fifteen minutes each, the panel members will discuss the mission and discuss the conceptual and methodological aspects of each job and the performance of the candidate. The panels will be composed by distinguished professors with extensive experience as a member of editorial boards, courts and thesis authors of publications. Participants to the meeting are also invited to the Colloquium and can contribute their comments to the objectives of this important academic activity.
