Join us for the 2024 ANZAM Conference
University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia
Tuesday 3 to Thursday 5 December 2024

The 37th ANZAM Conference is hosted by the Faculty of Business and Law, University of Wollongong. Our theme, “Celebrating Management Research, its Impact and Future”, is an opportunity to share the meaningful impact and contributions of management research to organisations, communities and society.


In addition, it seeks to explore and challenge the status-quo and future of management research and practice in an increasingly transparent moral landscape. This conference challenges all management scholars to consider an innovative future for the field based on the impact our discipline has had over the intervening years and the challenges ahead.


We encourage you to consider and address the question: “What is the impact of management research on organisations and how will this shape the future of management research?”

ANZAM acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet and work, and all Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and New Zealand. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ continuing connection to land, place, waters and community. We pay our respects to their cultures, country and elders past present and emerging.


ANZAM recognises the unique role of Māori as Tangata Whenua and embraces Te Tiriti o Waitangi recognising Māori as tino rangitiratanga of Aotearoa/New Zealand while embracing the three guiding principles of the Treaty – Partnership Participation and Protection. We endeavour to implement bicultural policies and practices that incorporate and value Māori cultural concepts, values and practices.
