Message from Division Chair


Welcome to the Critical Management Studies (CMS) Division of the Academy of Management. Critical Management Studies is characterised by scepticism concerning the morality and social and ecological sustainability of prevailing forms of organization. The Division promotes management research and education which is dedicated to interrogating relations of power and control and giving voice to marginal and oppressed voices. Our membership is highly international, comprising over 700 scholars, many of them doctoral students, working in over 45 countries.

There are several ways you can get involved with the CMS Division. You can find out about our latest conferences and events, news, competitions and awards, and how to join the CMS Division via these webpages. You can contribute to online discussions, share ideas and resources by joining our List and you can also follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and watch our videos on Youtube.

Please get involved and join other critical management scholars who are committed to challenging and transforming unethical and exploitative organizational practices.
