Submission Deadline Extended — January 2, 2015

Hello and happy holidays from the Dalhousie Journal of Interdisciplinary Management!

We’d like to thank all the students who have submitted articles to DJIM so far. We are looking forward to working with you all!

It has come to our attention that some Faculty of Management students who hoped to submit to DJIM were unable to do so because they had not yet been able to get feedback on their papers from professors. Because we want to make submitting to DJIM as accessible as possible, we have decided to EXTEND the submission deadline until January 2.

Please check out this blog post about submissions (https://djimblog.wordpress.com/2014/12/04/djim-submission-requirements/#more-665) and feel free to contact DJIM (djim@dal.ca) if you have any questions.

Welcome Sydni, Incoming Public Relations Co-Chair!

IMG_7143Hi! I’m Sydni Kind, a student in the Juris Doctor/MBA combined program at Dalhousie.  A born and raised Calgarian, I moved out to Halifax to pursue my degree.  I recently graduated with a Commerce Degree from University of Calgary, majoring in Marketing and minoring in Political Science.  I love studying at Starbucks, drinking green tea, and (attempting) to snowboard during Calgary’s never-ending winters.  I also enjoy travelling — mostly road trips, and I’m pretty obsessed with finding lighthouses! I’m excited to be a part of DJIM, developing our social media and marketing outlets to keep everyone informed of what’s going on!

Say Hi to Claire, Incoming Editorial Chair!

DSCN1307Hi!  My name is Claire Dionne and I am in the Master of Library and Information Studies program.  I am originally from Ottawa, where I have lived my whole life until I came to Halifax in the fall.  I have a Bachelor degree in lettres françaises (French literature) with a minor in theatre from the University of Ottawa.  I am a proud franco-ontarian and I love going to the theatre, reading, dancing, and playing ultimate frisbee.  I have worked in editing in a number of capacities in the past, and I am thrilled to be an Editorial Chair on DJIM!  Looking forward to working with everyone on this year’s issue!

Welcome Dirk, Incoming Special Projects Chair!

DirkOrange[2]Hi! My name is Dirk Xanthos, and I’m the incoming Special Projects Chair.  I’m originally from Australia, where I completed a Bachelor of Commerce with majors in Accounting and Finance.  After working for almost 10 years in the accounting field, I decided to change paths and pursue my passion for environment related issues.  I’m happy to be at Dal doing the Master of Resource and Environmental Management, working toward a career I can truly enjoy.  I believe strongly in the importance of quality research and as such, am excited to be part of DJIM!
