Family Enterprise Legacy Institute and the Telfer Research Office - Seminar with Johan Wiklund
Me-search : a path to relevant research with impact and meaning
***M.Sc. Students, this event can count towards one of the six mandatory Research Seminars Series needed to attend (MHS6991 or MGT6991).***
Many scholars are interested in increasing their chances of publishing their research in top journals. It is common to consider the issue AFTER the research has already been carried out. This is unfortunate. In this talk, I propose what I believe is a more fruitful way forward - me-search - an approach that can hopefully lead to a long-term successful and meaningful career.
