The Academy of Management (the Academy; AoM) is one of the premiere professional associations for scholars dedicated to creating and disseminating knowledge about management and organizations. Founded in 1936 by two professors, the Academy of Management is the oldest and largest scholarly management association in the world.[1] The Academy provides a forum for university management professors and management professionals to present and publish their original research and ideas. Due to the academic rigor and competitiveness to present at its conferences and to publish in its journals, the Academy of Management and its top-tier competitors serve as necessary forums for university professors to obtain tenure and other academic positions.



Upon registration, members of the Academy are granted complimentary memberships in 2 of its 24 divisions and interest groups; they may then pay an additional fee to join more. Each division has a unique focus in management issues and has its own governing officers. Currently, these divisions include the following:
Business Policy & Strategy, Careers, Conflict Management, Critical Management Studies, Entrepreneurship, Gender & Diversity in Organizations, Health Care Management, Human Resources, International Management, Management Consulting, Management Education & Development, Management History, Management Spirituality & Religion, Managerial & Organizational Cognition, Operations Management, Organization & Management Theory, Organization Development & Change, Organizational Behavior, Organizational Communication & Information Systems, Organizations & The Natural Environment, Public & Nonprofit, Research Methods, Social Issues in Management, Technology & Innovation Management.[2]


The publications of the Academy, which historically receive high Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) ratings,[3][4] include the following:

Current journals published by the Academy.

The three journals AMJ, AMP, and AMR were ranked in the top 40 business journals in the world by Financial Times in 2006.[5] Both AMJ and AMR are ranked in the top 10 in SCImago Journal & Country Rank under Business, Management and Accounting category[6]


The Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, held each year in August, is the largest annual gathering of management scholars in the world.[7] Attended by more than 6,000 people, the meeting provides a forum for sharing research and expertise in all management disciplines through invited and competitive paper sessions, panels, symposia, workshops, distinguished speakers, and special programs for doctoral students. Future meetings will be held in Montreal, Canada (2010), and San Antonio, Texas (2011) in August of each year.


Because the Academy covers management issues across many industries and in several management specialties (e.g. technology, HR, public & nonprofit, environmental), it has a diverse contingency of direct and indirect competitors.
