Melbourne Business School Events and Information Sessions 2022 Melbourne Organisational Behaviour Conference

2022 Melbourne Organisational Behaviour Conference

Melbourne Business School
10 - 100

This event has been postponed until later in the year. Please check back to this page for when the new date is announced. 

You are invited to the inaugural Melbourne Organisational Behaviour (MOB) conference!

With eight business schools spread across the city, Melbourne is a hub for exciting research in Organisational Behaviour (OB), Human Resource Management (HRM) and related disciplines. Despite the potential of this OB/HRM community, cross-institutional collaboration and knowledge exchange is not always fully realised. This conference aims to nurture the Melbourne OB/HRM community and increase connectivity, knowledge sharing and research collaboration between scholars.

We think that 2022 is a particularly good time to host this inaugural conference. Due to pandemic-related travel restrictions and budget cuts, many of us have missed out in-person conferences. The MOB conference helps to fill this gap, providing the benefits associated with in-person conferences (e.g., in-depth feedback, networking, social events), without the drawbacks (only modest fees to cover catering costs, less travel time, no accommodation costs, lower carbon footprint).

The one-day conference will include paper presentation sessions, a paper development session, discussion panels, methods workshops, and of course closing drinks.

Registration for this event will be available in mid-January. The current listed fees are an estimate with the final amount to be confirmed when registrations open. 

Full line up of speakers to be announced closer to the event.
