The Administrative Sciences Association of Canada (ASAC) is a professional body that brings together all those interested in research, teaching and management practices. Originally founded in 1957, the Association of Canadian Schools of Commerce and Business Administration had a mission to promote and improve higher education in commerce and business as well as provide a forum for scholarly research. In 1977 the association changed its name to ASAC and by the mid-1980s, was on par with associations such as the US Academy of Management.
Today ASAC offers a collegial membership and international conference with twenty interdisciplinary tracks where senior and junior academics, students and business professionals come together to innovate organizational management. ASAC provides a stimulating framework for sharing ideas and building interdisciplinary and inter-industry links for its members, who come from Canadian and international post-secondary institutions related to the business world and other associated fields, as well as companies in the private and public sectors.
