Dear IACMR community,
We are pleased to announce the successful completion of this workshop. We had a total of 15 professors from thirteen leading business schools in Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, France, USA, Spain and Japan. This workshop involves a four and a half days’ intensive study of the philosophy of science issues in social science research, how progress occurs in science, the role of values in scientific activities, and the challenges in management research, concluding with a discussion of the idea of responsible science in business and management. We also discussed how to teach this course to doctoral students so that our future scholars will live up to the responsibility of pursuing ‘responsible science’– research that generate credible and useful knowledge to improve management and business practices for a better world.
We plan to offer a Professional Development Workshop at the 2018 IACMR conference in Wuhan. Information about application to these activities will be available in due time.
Healthy, happy and lucky,
