BAM Annual Conference

Every year at varying locations throughout the UK, BAM holds a lively Conference in September, which is preceded by the Doctoral Symposium and the Professional Development Workshops. The Annual Conference is the cornerstone event for the wider business and management research community and provides an excellent opportunity to network and gain valuable feedback on the full and developmental papers presented from fellow peers and more senior academics in a friendly, vibrant, supportive and intellectually stimulating environment. The BAM2017 Conference is being held at the University of Warwick on 5th– 7th September and we welcome you to attend.
