Career Achievement Awards

Nominate your mentors, collaborators, and inspirations


Every year, the Academy of Management recognizes outstanding individuals, who have made significant contributions to the field of management through their service, research, innovative teaching methods, breakthrough developments, and more over the course of their career.


Have you noticed the leadership of a colleague or peer who fits the above description? AOM invites you to share your recognition for these distinguished individuals and their accomplishments with a 2024 Career Achievement Award (CAA) nomination.


AOM members are welcome to submit their nominations to the Career Achievement Awards Committee, who read each submission with careful consideration. Award winners have come from various backgrounds and from an array of experience around the world, each with their own unique contribution to the field of management.


“For me winning the award is beyond special. It’s recognition from AOM of the multiplicity of ways that we can make a difference... I think it says to people who are like me, that might be a little different than the mold, that you can make a difference.”

-Mary Crossan, winner of the 2023 Distinguished Educator Award
