Dear EDAMBA Member

On behalf of the President, Dimitris Assimakopoulos, and the EDAMBA Executive Committee, I have the pleasure to invite you to the 2023 General Assembly of the European Doctoral Programmes Association in Management and Business Administration.

Exceptionally this year, we have scheduled 2 General Assembly meetings to take place online. This is because the General Assembly is asked to vote on amendments of the EDAMBA statutes. In accordance with Article 7 of the Statutes, we wish to notify you of the date and time for both assembly meetings. 

The first Extraordinary General Assembly meeting will take place on Monday September 4, 2023 at 15.15 while the second General Assembly is scheduled for Monday September 4, 2023 at 15.30.  .

Venue: online
