The AAM was mooted by Professor Emeritus Mohamed Sulaiman, who was then the first president of AAM. It was officially established on June 18, 1994 through the initiatives of a group of Asian academics from various institutions. AAM provides an avenue for academicians to disseminate and share ideas on the latest business and management related areas. It seeks opportunities for collaboration among members to promote awareness and interest in the field of management.

A forum for the discussion of Asian-related businesses was established, leading to the birth of AAM Conference. The first AAM conference was organized from 7th till 8th of December 1995 to advance theories and practice of management in Asian countries. Concurrently, the first issue of the Asian Academy of Management Journal (AAMJ) was launched.

This chapter is of part AAM’s aim to expand its presence in Asia.  AAM Indonesia has organized many activities since 2008 particularly in supporting international conferences in Indonesia.
