Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are at the core of the BAM Community . SIGs enable you to connect, collaborate and communicate with your colleagues in a highly effective manner with leading edge thinking, research and teaching in your discipline. Each SIG has a range of activities and events that serve their membership, details of which can be found on individual SIG pages. SIGs are a particularly useful network for early career academics and doctoral students.

SIGS are run by BAM members for the academic community and are on the front-line of BAM's service delivery to members. We therefore think that active engagement with the SIGs is key to getting the most out of your BAM membership.

Keep reading below for more information SIGs. To find out about individual SIGs, use the links below and for SIG administrative documentation see the menu on the right.

What are SIGs?

Special Interest Groups are essentially networks of researchers that are interested in a particular area of business and management research. They hold events throughout the year and provide you with an academic forum for the discussion on relevant topics and a valuable source of mutual support.

Collaborative links are frequently established between SIGs and other relevant academic and professional groups, and interdisciplinary and international orientations are encouraged. Thus through its SIGs BAM can foster support for emerging areas of research, and BAM members gain opportunities to cross boundaries, develop new contacts and expand research communities. 


What do SIGs do?

SIGs are run by BAM members, for members, with support from the BAM office. They organise workshop and events on topics and themes relevant to thier research area, and take the lead in managing the academic programme at the annual BAM Conference through a variety of tracks. They also provide regular information about their activities for dissemination to the wider BAM membership via e-mail, the BAM Newsletter and the BAM web site. To view upcoming SIG events,please check individual SIG pages.
