This year there were 12 subject categories, sponsored by a selection of Emerald journals. The Awards were open to those who had completed examination requirements for a doctoral award between 1 October 2007 and 1 October 2010.
As the quality of submissions was again exceptionally high in all categories, the judges have had a difficult task deciding whom should be awarded these prestigious accolades. In addition to the overall winner, a number of Highly Commended Awards and Special Commendations have been bestowed across all of the various categories. Details of all award winners, listed by category, can be found below.
A cash prize of €1,500 (or currency equivalent) is awarded to the Winner of each category, as well as a certificate and the prospect of an offer of publication in the sponsoring journal, either as a full paper or an executive summary, at the Editor’s discretion. All Highly Commended Award and Special Commendation winners will receive certificates.
Both Emerald and the EFMD are exceedingly proud to support and reward such high-quality research. We wish the winners, and indeed all the applicants, success in their future academic careers. Further updates, including presentation photos and publication details, will appear here as information becomes available.
