The Academy of Management (AOM) recently awarded OU management professor Dr. Theodore Brown Sr. a plaque for "Outstanding Leadership and Service To The Academy," for his contributions as Caucus Program Committee Chair during its 2012 conference in Boston, MA, where its theme was "The Informal Economy.”
According to Brown, the conference registered its largest attendance with over 11,000 scholars from approximately 78 countries. He was also invited to serve as a second-term chair, for the 2013 AOM Conference in Lake Buena Vista, Florida; its conference theme will be "Capitalism in Question."
Additionally, Dr. Brown was selected to attend the upcoming AOM Africa Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, in January 2013. “The Africa Conference is capped at 450 people, whereas the AOM has over 20,000 members in 103 countries,” he explained.
"The purpose of this conference is to bring Africa's unique capabilities and needs to the attention of the world's organization and management scholars and, at the same time, to provide an opportunity for interested colleagues to collaborate and to work on the many interesting theoretical and practical problems presented in Africa."
Brown is a 1998 cohort and 2005 graduate of Andrews University, with a Ph. D. in Leadership with an emphasis in Financial Management, where he also serves as an Adjunct Professor of Leadership.
