The Global Business School Network (GBSN) invites management scholars and business school administrators to an interactive workshop at the Academy of Management (AOM) Specialized Conference—Advancing Management Research in Latin America. AOM  is the preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars. Their worldwide members are professors and Ph.D. students in business schools at universities, academics in related social science and other fields, and practitioners who value knowledge creation and application.

The purpose of the conference is twofold:

The GBSN workshop, happening on April 15th, will focus on developing management scholarship that is credible, and useful, in the Latin American context. This workshop will explore the kinds of research that matter to business and society in Latin America, as well as the resources and models that can support the research. A certificate of completion will be offered to participants in the workshop.

Whether you are presenting or discussing a research paper or not, there are many benefits to participating in the conference, including the opportunity to participate in this exclusive workshop presented in collaboration with the Global Business School Network, as well as meetings with journal editors, hackathons, and topical workshops.
