The 2017 Irish Academy of Management (IAM) Conference is being hosted by Queen’s Management School, Queen’s University Belfast, from the 30th August to the 1st September, 2017. 

Conference Theme: ‘Ireland 2017: Facing the business and management challenges of a Post-Brexit World’.

2017 will be a challenging year for Ireland as the ramifications of the UK’s Brexit decision become clear. Reflecting on Brexit and other systemic events such as the US Presidential Election, the 2017 IAM Conference will examine how business and management research can contribute insights to help businesses, managers, and policy makers respond. We invite papers that explore pertinent areas such as marketing, innovation and change management however, we also welcome papers across the spectrum of business and management disciplines and studying diverse industry sectors that may be particularly susceptible to global change events.

In light of the conference theme there is an opportunity for contributions to reflect how business and management research can respond to contemporary global challenges in a way that links theory to practice. With the increasing importance of ‘impact’ as a measure of academic research in Business Schools we therefore welcome papers that show how research has helped to improve, for example, the competitive position of firms and/or industrial sectors or has helped to shape policy decisions.

Submission details and further information about the conference can be found on the conference website. A Doctoral Colloquium will also form part of the conference and we welcome submissions from PhD students at all stages of their doctoral studies.

Abstracts will be double peer-reviewed. More information is available on the conference website:

We look forward to welcoming you to Belfast!
