4th edition of the Medici Summer School: June 24-29, 2012

We are pleased to announce the organization of the 4th edition of the Medici Summer School in Management Studies for doctoral students and young researchers which will be held in Florence, June 24-29, 2012. The 2012 Medici Summer School in Management Studies will focus on Creativity, Status and Legitimation.

The goal of the Summer School is to bring together leading strategy and organizations scholars to explore these and other issues during the week we will be together. A typical day will feature a faculty member presenting the gist of the research during the morning and working with student participants in the afternoon to flesh out and develop key questions, both theoretically and empirically. This will be done by: 1. Exposing students to the cutting edge of research in this area. 2. Sharing with students some of their own recent work on related topics. 3. Offering their best advice on how to tackle complex questions of both theory and research on creativity, status and legitimation. Part of each day will be devoted to student presentations of their own ideas and relevant research projects so that feedback from peers and from faculty can be elicited. Each faculty member will be in residence at the School for at least a few days, allowing ample time for one-to-one sessions, knowledge sharing, and networking opportunities.
