The International Management (IM) Division invites submissions for Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) at the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM 2024) held in person 9-13 August 2024 in Chicago, IL, USA. This year's conference theme is "Innovating for the Future: Policy, Purpose, and Organizations". This theme is particularly salient for the IM Division in light of the increased internationalization of innovation and R&D, the broad range of stakeholders multinational enterprises interact with, and IM scholars’ long-standing interest in how policy affects multinational enterprises and their subsidiaries.
The International Management (IM) Division of the Academy of Management brings together a global community of scholars researching and teaching management themes with a cross-border or cross-cultural dimension. These include the influence of the context (e.g., geopolitical and technological changes) on international management and the contribution of management to addressing global social and environmental challenges. Members of the IM community conduct research on themes such as:

Our goal for the PDWs is to provide participants with opportunities to enhance their professional and personal skills relevant to IM-related scholarship and teaching including macro and micro topics. With this in mind, we seek innovative, provocative, and exciting proposals that bring together an international community of scholars interested in enhancing research and teaching in the broad field of International Management.
The format for PDW sessions is highly flexible. PDWs may consist of workshops, panels, round-table discussions, training sessions, etc. -- meaningful interaction is the key. As such, PDWs provide opportunities to experiment, with respect to both content and format, that are typically beyond the scope of regular paper sessions. We seek creative and interactive proposals that promote scholarship or teaching and involve not only other AOM divisions, but also firms, not-for-profit organizations, consultancies, NGOs, and public sector organizations.
The PDW sessions will take place on Friday, August 9 through Sunday, August 11 2024 during the Annual Meeting. Please see the Annual Meeting website for additional information about the conference.
Submissions: If you are interested in organizing or being involved in a PDW in any way, please contact the IM Division's PDW Chair, Ilya Cuypers.
Final PDW submissions must be made through the AOM Submission Center website. The submission deadline is Tuesday, 9 January 2024 at 17:00 ET (GMT-5/UTC-5). This system will open early December 2023.
We look forward to hearing from you regarding exciting workshops for the 2024 Annual Meeting!
