EIASM -  the European “Network of Networks for Researchers and Doctoral Students in Management”

EIASM might best be described as the central node of a set of networks bringing together Management scholars from throughout Europe - as well as enabling communication between Europe and other parts of the world. The member associations supported by EIASM facilitate access to and entry into the most dynamic circles of Management scientists in Europe.

EIASM's network currently comprises more than 50.000 registered members professionally involved in Management research and/or teaching.
