The Department of Management is strongly represented at the world’s leading management conference; the Academy of Management Meeting, to be held in Vancouver, Canada, in August 2015. Thousands of competitive papers have been submitted and about 50% are accepted for presentation at the conference.  Our department is represented in several divisions.

Furthermore, three papers authored by colleagues from our department are selected to appear in the Best Paper Proceedings. Based on positive reviewer feedback and evaluations by division and programme chairs, the proceedings select the top 10% of the papers from the overall conference programme into this prestigious publication.

Franziska Günzel-Jensen and Morten Rask have their paper: ”You cannot live of love alone – the interrelation of legitimacy and effectuation in nascent markets” selected by the Entrepreneurship division. Sarah M.L. Krøtel and Anders R. Villadsen’s work:  “When does public sector socialization lead to turnover? The role of organizational privateness” is selected for the proceedings by the Public Non-Profit division. While, in the Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) division, Michela Beretta’s paper entitled “Why do ideas get selected? Idea selection in an online ideation platform” was selected.

In addition to the papers accepted and selected for best paper proceedings the department is represented at various Professional development workshops. And finally, Lars Frederiksen serves in the management team for the TIM division. The TIM division has more than 3000 members and is among the largest divisions at the academy. Together with about 20 international colleagues Lars Frederiksen and Jennifer Woolley (Santa Clara University, CA. US) are organizing and delivering the division’s annual doctoral consortium including about 40 doctoral students.
