1. Questions or concerns you have about your profile?
I have finished my MBA back in 2011 so I'm kind of out of touch. I am trying to fix that by contacting some of my Oxford fellow alums in academia and working on a white paper with them this year (I will probably be third author). Will I still be considered too disconnected from academia for the top Canadian schools?
Any additional specific questions you may have: As a gay man I want to focus on sexual minorities in the work place. Although there is plenty of work on gender and race minorities, there is not as much work done related to LGBT discrimination, etc.
2. Is that a bad sign that very few researchers in Canada (or even globally) work in this area?
3. Would it come across as self serving that a gay man wants to study LGBT issues in corporations?
4. Would OB the best area for me to apply within a business school?
