    Greetings from the Midwest Academy of Management!

    We would like to cordially invite you to submit your current and in progress work and to join us at our annual meeting this fall in Moorhead, Minnesota.  This year, you could get to experience "North of Normal!" Moorhead is part of the Fargo metro area spanning three cities, Fargo, West Fargo, and not so "far to go" is MOORHEAD!

    Will you join us?

    The deadline for submissions is – MAY 31st!



    Hosted by Concordia College – Offutt School of Business (Moorhead, MN)

    October 24-26, 2024



    Conference Theme:
    Ideas, Actions & Outcomes


    An idea can change the world. And as management scholars and practitioners, our strength is in generating innovative ideas as part of our research and teaching efforts. A promising idea mobilizes us to take action to bring it to fruition. And finally, our actions produce outcomes that are assessed and evaluated. During this time of reflection, "what if" questions, recommendations, and suggestions typically lead to new, improved, or revised ideas and ways of thinking. This recursive process enables us to make an impact for the betterment of society. For this year's Midwest Academy of Management conference, we invite all members of the academy – researchers, educators, practitioners, and students – to submit papers and proposals that will challenge and motivate us to a) be more innovative, b) share ways in which actions have been taken to advance new ideas, and c) share valuable knowledge and lessons learned to generate new ideas to be explored in the future.

    Deadline for submissions – May 31, 2024 @ 11:59 PM

    Acceptance decisions will be made by early August 2024.

    Program Chair:

    Shontarius Aikens (saikens@cord.edu)
