In cooperation with Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University, the Management Research Network (MRN) is pleased to announce the The Tenth International Conference on Engaged Management Scholarship eJournal. This eJournal is available to all subscribers at no charge and contains abstracts of the meeting papers with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.

The EMS 2020 conference was designed to build and strengthen multi-disciplinary and applied research by managers and practitioner-scholars in a world facing escalating challenges in both academia and practice, especially during and after the COVID-2019 pandemic. The theme "Research That Matters in an Age of Disruption" highlighted the growing need for practitioner-scholars to address and understand ongoing disruptions created by pandemics, climate change, growing social inequalities, digital technologies and new realities of the geo-political environment. The conference gathered doctoral students, alumni, and faculty from executive DBA programs, as well as managers to accelerate engaged management research and evidence-based management. EMS 2020, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Engaged Management Scholarship conference, was hosted virtually by Case Western Reserve University (CWRU). The first EMS conference was held in 2010 at CWRU.

CWRU is a distinguished research university in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Established in 1995, the Doctor of Management (DM) program at the Weatherhead School of Management at CWRU was the first executive doctorate in North America with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research.
