Reconnecting With Humanity: Marketing’s Role in Promoting Responsible Technology While Serving People
Given the polycrisis that the world faces and newly emerging challenges, it is incumbent upon marketing academics and practitioners to continue guiding individuals, businesses and societies around the world to better prepare for an uncertain future driven by accelerated advances in different forms of technology. The influence of technology-powered marketing and its intersection with the global economy, geopolitics, socio-cultural issues and human behavior warrant exploration into transformative research that has potential for implementation in responsible business practices.
The 2024 AMA Summer Academic Conference will demonstrate the responsibilities of marketing to promote innovative, sustainable, inclusive and equitable technology-based offerings that advance the quality of life for humanity and the earth.

A World Disrupted: Marketing’s Role in Understanding, Adapting and Transforming the Business Ecosystem
The world has faced exceptional uncertainties recently, including the ongoing pandemic, regional conflicts, economic volatility, and supply chain disruptions. These uncertainties are compounded by the accelerating climate crisis and a growing sense that social and political discourse is fracturing globally. Practitioners, consumers, and other stakeholders are challenged to adapt and thrive economically, psychologically, and socially amidst these challenges. Marketing has a special responsibility in helping the world navigate the current environment toward a more harmonious future. The 2023 AMA Summer Academic Conference invites research that highlights the role of marketing in advancing our understanding of the complex challenges at hand and in shaping resilient business ecosystems that can respond proactively, equitably, and sustainably.

A Note About Academic Placement
After observing the 2022 Fall Rookie Job Market and transition to online (Zoom) interviews, the AMA Academic Council sought to understand the challenges and best practices to improve the market moving forward. To do so, we surveyed 2022 job market candidates and engaged a taskforce of faculty with extensive recruiting experience. We encourage you to read the statement from the AMA Academic Council on following best practices for universities and job market candidates.
Presented by leading experts, these 75-minute workshops are focused on emerging research and teaching techniques and tools. View the workshops.
