Divisions and Interest Groups

Divisions and Interest groups (DIGs) reflect a broad range of member interests within 26 management disciplines. They provide collective relationships among members within a particular subject area who share similar aspects of research, interests and professional scholarship. Each DIG offers a specific range of services, educational sessions and social events at the Annual Meeting. DIG websites offer resources such as professional development opportunities, recognition programs, and member communications specific to each DIG.


  • Divisions focus on established bodies of scholarship and have a unique intellectual contribution to the field.
  • Divisions are comprised of members who regularly make scholarly contributions applicable to the management field through firmly rooted research recorded in scholarly books and journals.

Interest Groups

  • Interest Groups focus on emerging trends within distinct bodies of scholarship.
  • Interest Groups are organized around trends not represented within the Divisions and represent an area to which AOM members are beginning or likely to make scholarly contributions.
