DIGs: Your Home Within AOM


Since its founding in 1936, the Academy of Management has evolved from an organization of 10 members seeking to advance the scholarship of management science, to one with thousands of members representing the interconnected scholarship of 26 diverse management disciplines embodied in our professional Divisions and Interest Groups (DIGs). Individually and collectively, the DIGs are a primary means through which much of the scholarly work of the Academy is accomplished. Importantly, DIG membership takes on significant value in the Academy as members find their intellectual homes in one or more of these unique groups.


Powered by the commitment, passion, and ingenuity of volunteers, DIG programs truly are created by members, for members. DIGs provide valuable service to members year-round, offering opportunities to connect, learn, volunteer, and socialize with their peers. Whether you are looking for topical webinars hosted by leading scholars, teaching or research resources recommended by those who share your professional interests, mentoring support for your professional journey, or simply a community to stay abreast of the latest calls for papers and workshop offerings, your DIG has what you are looking for.

Your DIGs are waiting for you, so start building your community today!

AOM Member Directory

Did you know that a current membership grants you access to AOM's Member Directory? The Member Directory is one of the best networking tools available to members. Find colleagues by name, geographic location, or institution. You can also get up-to-date AOM and Division and Interest Group membership statistics, and view where membership lies across the globe.

Non-members can access statistics, but membership is required to access the directory.

The Doctoral Student Development Program (DSDP), a benefit for student members of AOM, has been joined by more than one-third of those eligible, all of whom now have online access to the comprehensive video library of the Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis, or CARMA. It's a valuable member benefit for doctoral students, research assistants, project leaders, manuscript authors, and editors.
