Welcome to EIASM's end-of-October 2019 Newsletter

The new academic year for the European Institute started off with the 3rd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award presented to Prof. Peter Buckley (Leeds University Business School) at the EIASM Academic Council Meeting (ACM) held at VSE in Prague on the 23rd of September 2019.

EIASM firmly believes that interdisciplinarity is the key to ensuring that theory-building, empirical research, education and institution-building in Management integrate knowledge and progress in an era of increasing specialization. An interdisciplinary approach is essential for further developing Management as a field that is able to advance theoretically, provide rigorous and relevant knowledge for students and practitioners, and ultimately help to deal with the grand and highly complex challenges of contemporary society.

Fall is the perfect season for discovering our new EIASM 2020 portfolio of events – dedicated on the one hand to doctoral education with the EIASM EDEN Program, and on the other hand to faculty development and networking with the EIASM Workshops and Conferences – each of these events providing deep disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary knowledge, thanks to the involvement of their respective chairs and established scholars.

Do enjoy and partake of the many benefits of our EIASM events as well as those of our sister associations!
