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,

Welcome to the International Management Division website as we are in the beginning of preparations for the 2023 AOM Annual Meeting in Boston from August 4 - 8, 2023 on the theme: Putting the Worker Front and Center. Program Chair Nandini Lahiri and Professional Development Workshop (PDW) Chair Klaus Meyer are already working hard at building the IM Division’s conference program. Please look for more information on the meeting over the next couple of months, but for now, please plan to submit your papers, symposia and PDW proposals, and please plan to review for the conference.

Right now, I would like to recognize everyone who contributed to AOM’s first hybrid conference in Seattle this past August. It was great to meet back in person for the first time since 2019, although many still joined virtually. The 2022 conference theme of “Creating a Better World Together” was very timely and appropriate given the multitude of events facing the world right now.

I particularly wanted to thank Program Chair Grazia Santangelo and Professional Development Workshop (PDW) Chair Nandini Lahiri who were the central players in building the IM Division’s conference program. We are extremely grateful for their work. Nandini’s efforts led to an IM Division PDW program which included 20 PDWs that had their primary sponsorship from the IM Division, of which 16 focused on research and 4 on teaching. In addition, the IM Division co-sponsored another 38 PDWs organized by other divisions. The PDW program featured 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). Thank you everyone for your efforts in support of the PDW Program.

Grazia had the huge job of putting together our division’s scholarly program which included symposia and paper sessions, covering a vast array of topics that comprise our field of International Management. The program featured 250 Divisional papers in 78 sessions, plus 22 IM-led symposia and two showcase symposia. Scholarly program highlights included sessions featuring nominees for best paper awards and finalists for the D’Amore-McKim Northeastern University Best Dissertation Award. In addition, the program included opportunities for some informal discussions in the traditional IM Division Thought Leadership Café, led by Klaus Meyer (Ivey Business School) and Rosalie Tung (Simon Fraser University). A second thought leadership was organized by Alex Settles on the Ukrainian crisis. Showcase symposiums included “Value Creation and Appropriation in the Post-Pandemic Era” and “Researching National Innovation Ecosystems: Institutions, Infrastructure, and Firms”.
