Haring Symposium


The 2023 Haring Symposium, hosted by the Kelley School of Business, will be held on April 14 and 15, 2023 on the beautiful campus of Indiana University, Bloomington. The Haring Symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their latest research, receive detailed, constructive feedback from their peers, and network with students and faculty from other leading universities. Participation is by invitation only.

Present research in a professional meeting environment.

The Marketing Department at Indiana University created the Albert Haring Symposium for Doctoral Research in Marketing with the objective of contributing to the research development process of emerging scholars in our profession. The Symposium is designed to provide doctoral students in marketing with a forum to present and discuss their research in a professional meeting environment. 

The Symposium has traditionally included representatives from the Big Ten schools. However, over the last several years we have been delighted to enlarge the circle of participating schools to reach beyond the Big Ten. Since 1971, the Haring Symposium has brought over 900 doctoral students to IU Bloomington. In addition, we have had the valuable participation of over 400 faculty members sharing their insights on a variety of areas.


Registration is open to invited participants only. 

About the Haring Symposium

The Symposium was initiated in 1971 to honor then retiring Professor Albert Haring. Dr. Haring, a past president of the AMA and outstanding scholar in the areas of sales management, channels, and credit, devoted the majority of his long career to the personal and professional development of doctoral students in Marketing. As we prepare to host this year's Annual Haring Symposium, we are very gratified that the event’s long term success continues to honor this gentleman who contributed enormously to our profession.
