The Academy of Management by Scott Scarborough

Since its original meeting of 10 scholars, the Academy has expanded to serve more than 18,000 members in 110 countries. The Academy caters to the interests of each member through 24 professional divisions and interest groups focusing on such topics as conflict management, health care management, and research methods.

Membership is open to anyone interested in the field of management, including scholars at universities and professionals in business, government, and nonprofit positions. Learn more about the organization by visiting http://www.aomonline.org.
