If the United States constitutes the cradle of doctoral studies in management, the programs that aim at professional managers have developed rapidly in Europe over the past 10 years, especially in the UK and in France. Scholars in management now look all over the world to define their research questions, to share their findings and to implement in various types of organizations the recommendations that emerge from their work. This sixth edition of the world forum for doctoral studies in management dedicated to professionals was held in Paris for the sixth edition. It has allowed US participants to cross the Atlantic Ocean, both literally and figuratively. It has generated stimulating exchanges and hopefully collaborations between researchers from various continents. Indeed, we also aim at looking towards Australia, Africa and Asia, especially China, as these programs develop in these areas as well, based upon different research traditions. The participation of researchers from all continents has enabled us to grasp various meanings of research, notably through its geopolitical and cultural dimensions.
