About TADC

What is the Trans-Atlantic Doctoral Conference 2020?
The Trans-Atlantic Doctoral Conference 2020 is the 20th conference in the series of annual doctoral conferences hosted by London Business School since 2001. Each year, the Trans-Atlantic Doctoral Conference provides a venue for doctoral students from top business schools in North America and Europe to exchange  research ideas with each other. 

How is the Conference program scheduled? Is it organised by subject areas? 
Presentations are divided into the following seven subject areas: (1) Accounting; (2) Economics; (3) Finance; (4) Marketing; (5) Management, Science and Operations; (6) Organisational Behaviour; and (7) Strategy and Entrepreneurship. You can choose the stream most relevant to your topic on the application form.

Will London Business School arrange and/or pay for my stay in London during/before/or after the conference? 
London Business School will provide for shared accommodation in a nearby hotel for a maximum number of three nights (14th, 15th, and 16th May) for conference participants. Please note that no accommodation will be provided for participants from London-based schools. Participants will need to arrange and pay for any additional nights themselves.

Who will be the audience? 
Other PhD students from top business schools in the United States and Europe will be the principal audience. As this is a ‘peer-to-peer’ Conference, faculty will not attend the student presentations. Meet-the-faculty lunch (or drinks reception for some disciplines) will take place giving you the opportunity to find out more about research in your subject area at London Business School.
