About the IM Division

The International Management Division of the Academy of Management focuses on content pertaining to the theory, research, and practice of management with a cross-border or cross-cultural dimension.

Major topics include: the cross-border management of operations, including multi-country, multi-unit, strategy formulation and implementation; evolving forms and management practices in cross-border business; the cross-border differential impact of cultural, social, economic, technological, political, and other institutional forces on strategies, organizational forms, and management practices; the international competitiveness of firms, industries, and nations; and comparative management studies involving two or more countries.

Dear IM Division Members,

As you are aware, after two years of meeting virtually, we are having our first Hybrid AOM 2022 Conference, which means we can meet in person, while offering an extensive virtual format for members who prefer to engage online. This year’s conference theme of “Creating a Better World Together” is very timely and appropriate as we stand at a critical moment in history. Climate change, the Covid-19 pandemic, food insecurity, inequality, and other key challenges threaten our way of living.

Program Chair Grazia Santangelo and Professional Development Workshop (PDW) Chair Nandini Lahiri have been working hard at building the IM Division’s conference program. We are extremely grateful for their work. Nandini’s efforts have led to an IM Division PDW program which will feature selected PDWs and our division’s Doctoral Student Consortium (co-chaired by Anna Lamin and Mirko Benischke), Junior Faculty Consortium (co-chaired by Elizabeth Rose and Irina Surdu-Nardella), Paper Development Workshop (co-chaired by Srividya Jandhyala and Markus Taussig) and “Meet-the-Editors” session (chaired by Ilya Cuypers). Grazia had the huge job of putting together our division’s scholarly program which includes symposia and paper sessions, covering a vast array of topics that comprise our field of International Management. The scholarly program highlights include sessions featuring nominees for best paper awards and finalists for the D’Amore-McKim Northeastern University Best Dissertation Award. In addition to enjoying paper presentations and engaging with the other friendly IM Division members, join us for some informal discussions in the traditional IM Division Thought Leadership Café. Our thought leaders, Klaus Meyer (Ivey Business School) and Rosalie Tung (Simon Fraser University), will share their views on the evolution of the IM field and related opportunities and challenges for research.
