What is the Academy of Management?

  • AOM is a professional association for scholars dedicated to creating and disseminating knowledge about management and organizations. Since its beginning in 1936, the Academy has evolved from an organization of 10 members to an organization of 15027 members from 91 nations. 
  • Today, the Academy’s 21 professional divisions and three interest groups promote excellence in established management disciplines. Five U.S.-based affiliates, the Eastern, Midwest, Southwest, and Western Academies of Management and the Southern Management Association as well as two international affiliates, the Asia and Ibero-American Academies of Management, promote the exchange of ideas and provide collaborative opportunities for colleagues sharing a geographic area, language, or cultural identity.

How is the Academy organized, and what are its activities?

  • The Academy is a member-driven society, overseen by a voluntary Board of Governors with the aid of staff who help to coordinate members’ activities. 
  • Members collaborate and exchange expertise in 24 management disciplines represented by divisions and interest groups. 
  • Membership in two divisions or interest groups is included in the basic membership rate. Additional divisions and interest groups can be added for a nominal fee. Divisions provide disciplinary “home bases” for members with specific scholarly interests. 
  • They function like mini societies by encouraging scholarship, dissemination of information, and fellowship among persons of similar academic and professional interest. 
  • Interest groups are formed around emerging trends in management thought and research, unlike the divisions, which represent established bodies of management knowledge. The research focus of interest groups is in areas where members are beginning to make or are likely to make scholarly contributions.
  • Whereas the research focus of divisions is firmly rooted; members are clearly and regularly making scholarly contributions and the body of scholarship has an independent record in scholarly books and journals and in application to the management field. 

There are currently three interest groups in the Academy.
