Each year, the ICSB World Conference hosts a pre-conference Doctoral Consortium. At the Consortium, doctoral candidates in the field of small business and entrepreneurship can present their research, receive feedback on their scholarship, and meet experienced faculty.

The Doctoral Consortium also provides new researchers and more advanced scholars with an opportunity to share their ideas and experience. The Consortium offers doctoral candidates a chance to network with people in their field.
