Advancing Management Research in Latin America is AOM’s 4th specialized conference and our very first conference in Latin America–a unique region for management research. With ties to 33 countries stretching from Mexico to Peru, LATAM provides a relevant setting for management research and its application, making it a perfect setting for our specialized conference. Through its rich history, culture, and various socioeconomic and political conditions, Latin America provides a perfect background for advancing management research.

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to meet with colleagues that share interests in learning more about LATAM and have access to sessions and activities that will provide great cultural insights. Attendees will also experience Mexico City, the biggest metropolis in the region and with an exciting cultural, gastronomic and artistic scenery. IPADE Business School, a leading business school in the region, will host the event in a beautiful colonial-style building inserted in the middle of the city. The conference theme will provide intellectual insight, awareness of diversity in management practices, and promote scholarly conversations on a global scale.
