Taking Academics out of Theirs Comfort Zone: About oikos Academies - Interview with Klaus Weber

Klaus Weber, Associate Professor of Management & Organizations at the Kellog School of Management at Northwestern University, sat down with Student Reporter Lindsay Shafer and discussed his views on oikos' unique program of giving Ph.D. students a platform to discuss their research with with peers and Academy faculty. While it is still important to go to larger conference and network with people in your field, doing what you do, it is also important to meet people who can give you a different view of your research. As Klaus says, the oikos program is so unique because of its "deliberate goal to develop young researchers" through small group interaction. We also discussed doctoral student and advisor relationships and how to choose the best advisor for your research. Please listen and let us know what you think about the oikos Young Scholars Academy model.
