Session theme: Why should DBA and PhD students join BAM?
The aim is to enable doctoral researchers to be confident, successful, and excited about their doctorial journey choices. This space is about being open and having innovative minds come together to learn, share, and network in a safe environment.

We are curious minds, that strive for success and recognition. We will be confident through discussion, knowledge sharing, and celebrating success. As per the doctoral researcher’s definition.

To share information that will help inspire doctoral researchers to thrive in their doctoral journeys. Knowing what matters as a doctoral researcher is key to having a successful research journey.
