Looking for a MS in Media Management?
Check out the new program at The University of Miami: http://com.miami.edu/news/2017/11/01/master’s-program-created-for-media-management
We hope the fall semester is treating you well! The Media Management, Economics, and Entrepreneurship Division (MMEE) invites abstract submissions to be considered for presentation at the 2018 AEJMC Midwinter Conference. We are also starting to recruit reviewers for both midwinter and the national convention. Finally, we’re proud to announce the introduction of a new award to our division, the top reviewer award.
MMEE @ Midwinter
The University of Oklahoma will again host the 2018 AEJMC Midwinter Conference in the beautiful Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication on Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3, 2018. Look for something special this year – it will the 10th consecutive year for the Gaylord College at OU to host Midwinter!
This conference is a great opportunity for students and faculty to get initial feedback on their studies before the submission deadline for the national conference, and to get to present their research in an intimate, welcoming environment.
The deadline to submit to Midwinter is noon, Friday, December 1. Submit your abstracts of 600 to 800 words, excluding author information and references, to the AEJMC Midwinter conference via the new content management system. You’ll have to click the Sign Up Here link first, then select MMEE as your division when you submit. If you have any questions, please email MMEE Research Chairs, Ronen Shay email@example.com or Kelly Kaufhold firstname.lastname@example.org
Abstracts should give a clear sense of relevant literature, research objectives, methods employed, the stage of the research project and initial or expected findings and conclusions. Papers cannot be under review at other outlets (e.g., ICA). However, Midwinter submissions, even accepted papers, are eligible to be resubmitted to the national AEJMC conference April 1. The division will also honor the top paper at Midwinter.
Panel proposals are also welcome and we always need division members willing to serve as reviewers in December, and discussants and moderators in March. Please contact MMEE Research Chairs, Ronen Shay email@example.com or Kelly Kaufhold firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ll be available and are willing to help – thanks!
Review for MMEE!
We are on the lookout for reviewers for both midwinter and our national convention. If you are interested please fill out the form located at: https://goo.gl/forms/kqjnSUb2YiE7r49o2
We would also appreciate if you considered sharing this form with colleagues who you feel can judge papers on media management, economics, or entrepreneurship. They do not need to be a member of the division to review. Please note that individuals who submit papers to the division will not be eligible to review.
If you are not sure whether you will be submitting a paper this year, please consider volunteering anyway, as we can always remove your name later. As always, being a reviewer for MMEE does not prevent you from submitting or reviewing for other divisions.
Time for a new plaque…
We understand that completing a good review takes time, effort, and dedication. As a division, we are proud of the detailed feedback our submissions receive each and every year and want to encourage that level of quality on every review. It is with this in mind that we are happy to announce that we will be acknowledging the hard work of our dedicated reviewers by presenting a top reviewer award.
If you have any questions about midwinter, the new award, or volunteering to review, please reach out via email, or any of the official MMEE social media platforms using the hashtag #AskAboutMMEE
We love questions!

Please see below for an funded faculty development opportunity (Deadline: 10/23):
The Educational Foundation of the National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) offers two funded faculty development opportunities. We hope you will distribute this information to your faculty. A flyer is attached.
Our immediate deadline (October 23) is for the 2018 Faculty Fellowship; it allows faculty to attend the annual NATPE Conference and Market in Miami Beach, FL. Faculty with interests in media content, including news and entertainment programming and program development, advertising and promotion, social media developments, marketing or licensing content, implementing technology and content rights issues should consider applying for a fellowship.
NATPE provides hotel accommodation, most meals, registration, NATPE membership and a special faculty-only educational seminar. The online application is available here: https://www.natpe.com/education/programs
Also, encourage your faculty to plan ahead for a Summer 2018 Faculty Development Grant placement at a TV station, ad agency, production firm or other outlet to sharpen teaching skills. Summer grant recipients receive at least $500 per week during a summer placement at a media firm and travel funding, registration, meals and housing to attend the 2019 NATPE Conference.

Apologies for cross postings. Several email lists are being used to reach media management and economics scholars.
We are writing to ask you to complete a survey helping us understand university-industry collaborations in media management and economics.
We understand that you are busy, but would like your help in mapping the UIC situation in the field to develop an empirical basis for a general understanding of our community and to support development of strategies and practices that advance our collective interests. It should take 5-10 minutes of your time.
The results of this survey will be reported in the 2018 World Media Economics and Management Conference next May in Cape Town, South Africa.
Please click here to go to the survey:
Thank you for your valuable time and vital contribution!

1) Increase visibility of the division across AEJMC.
- Promotional division stickers at D.C. conference
- Participate in/lead AEJMC initiatives (e.g. be competitive in new “professional research relevance” awards)
- Encourage and foster MMEE member participation in AEJMC leadership positions outside the division (e.g. follow the leads of Amy Jo Coffey, George Sylvie, others serving on Standing Committees.)
2) Make a concerted effort to focus on membership promotion, recruitment and RETENTION
- Proactive outreach to expiring members
- Business school outreach
- 52% without a DIG- opportunity for recruitment
- Continued international expansion, new membership initiatives (agency focus), and entrepreneurship focus
3) Renewed communication focus
- Officer blog posts/greater population of division blog content
- Greater external visibility
Those are the three primary goals for the division for the year. Some of the organizational changes we made to the executive committee to help achieve these goals are we have two outstanding membership co-chairs this year since a lot of our efforts are aimed at membership (in the past we’ve had a single chair). We also have two research co-chairs this year instead of a research chair that oversees the main paper competition and a separate MidWinter conference chair. The goal is to better integrate the MidWinter and main conference research efforts, and allow for the addition of a separate paper call from our annual main paper call. As this is a trial run in this endeavor, the research chairs have been tasked with reporting back and making recommendations on this structure at the annual conference in Washington, D.C.
In recent years, we’ve added Facebook and Twitter pages and made the division blog our primary source of communication, with the Communications Chair tasked with the continual upkeep of these sites. The job is bigger than one person, however. Officers will be populating the blog with content, and of course, we welcome contributions from our members. Look for additional improvements in the way we communicate from our Communications Chair.
