The International Academy of Management had its origins in the first international management congress held in Prague in 1924 at the initiative of President Jan Masaryk.
At the congress, CIOS – the World Council of Management (Conseil International de l’Organisation Scientifique) was founded. CIOS established the International Academy of Management in 1958. The Academy is now independent of CIOS.
Its objectives are:
- To honor excellence in management through the election to Fellowship of individuals who have made an outstanding international contribution to the science and art of management.
- To provide a forum for the exchange internationally of knowledge and experience so as to contribute to the advancement of the science and art of management and thus to human progress.
