The Management and Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (MOBTS) is a professional organization for individuals who teach courses in management and organizational behavior. The society was founded in 1974 and incorporated in 1981 as the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (OBTS), updating its name to MOBTS in July 2017. MOBTS is dedicated to promoting excellence in the teaching of management and organizational behavior. The mission of MOBTS is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, information, and materials among its members, as well as to promote the improvement of teaching and research in the field of management and organizational behavior.
Membership in MOBTS is open to individuals who are involved in the teaching of management and organizational behavior, including academic professors, instructors, and graduate students. The society holds an annual conference in the United States, where members can present their research, participate in panel discussions, and network with other professionals in the field. Similar scope conferences are held annually in Australia/New Zealand (MOBTS Oceania), and globally (International MOBTS).
MOBTS also provides opportunities for members to collaborate on teaching and research projects, as well as to participate in professional development workshops and training sessions. The society also publishes two journals, the Journal of Management Education (JME) and Management Teaching Review (MTR), which provide a platform for the publication of original research on teaching and learning in management and organizational behavior, as well as teaching techniques. JME is ranked as a "B" in the Australian Business Deans Council's (ABDC) journal ranking list.
The Management and Organizational Behavior Teaching Society is a valuable resource for individuals who are committed to advancing the field of management and organizational behavior through education and research.
