Doctoral Day Faculty of Business and Economics

Tuesday 15 October 2024


Doctoral Day 2024

The Doctoral Day event is yearly organized by the Faculty of Business and Economics in co-operation with the  Executive PhD programme of the Antwerp Management School. During the last edition, 17 October 2023, we welcomed over 150 PhD-students, as well as their research supervisors, interested Master students and invitees for the thirteenth edition of this research day.

This scientific gathering offers PhD students a platform to present their doctoral work and receive comments from a discussant. The Doctoral Day is also meant to offer opportunities to 'meet and greet' and exchange ideas with fellow students, faculty, and Master students. Finally, the annual Doctoral Day wants to contribute to the visibility of the growing research environment of the Faculty of Business and Economics. 

Amongst the submitted papers, the Best Paper Award Committee selects three papers that will be presented during the Doctoral Day, after which the Committee decides who receives the Best Paper Award.

The 2024 edition of the FBE Doctoral Day will place Tuesday 15 October 2024 at the Cloister of the Grauwzusters. 

Best Paper Award

After a first selection made by the session chairs, the Best Paper Award selection committee shortlisted three papers which were presented during the Doctoral Day. Afterwards, the Best Paper Award Committee deliberated which paper was awarded. Congratulations to Dries Van Doninck for winning the Best Paper Award for his paper 'We’re in this together? Investigating the link between organizational identification and chronic stress in the face of uncertainty in the public sector'.

For the 2023 edition, the committee consisted of  Prof. Dr. Tom Van Caneghem, Prof. Dr. Barbara Briers, Prof. Dr. Kim De Meulenaere, Prof. Dr. Elsa Leromain, Prof. Dr. Philippe Nimmegeers and Prof. Dr. Steffi Weil (chair).
