Highlights of IACMR Events at AoM 2019

The IACMR-RRBM Responsible Research in Management Award Ceremony was held at the Independence West Room of Sheraton Boston Hotel on Sunday August 11.  This award recognizes scholarship that focuses on important issues for business and society, using sound research methods. Both this year’s and last year’s winners will be honored at the ceremony. Several winners discussed their research during the ceremony, and answered questions from the audience. We hope that this award encourages more work that is both high in social impact and backed by strong research.


The Kwok Leung Memorial Dissertation Fund grant award ceremony was held at the Independence West Room of Sheraton Boston Hotel on Sunday August 11.  It’s the 4th year to give the award.

David Zhu (Arizona State University) and Jia (Jasmine) Hu (The Ohio State University), Co-Chairs of the IACMR Research Committee, conferred the awards to three winners who were present, Jingxian Yao, Zhiyu Feng and Tingting Lang.
