Julian Birkinshaw has been elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Management, in recognition of his contributions to the science and practice of management. Julian is the first Faculty from LBS to be elected to this prestigious role in the Academy.
Established in 1936 with 10 members, the US-based Academy of Management today has 19,000 members from nearly 120 countries. Its 25 professional divisions and interest groups promote excellence in established management disciplines.
Julian Birkinshaw is Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship and Deputy Dean for Executive Education and Learning Innovation at London Business School. His main area of expertise is in the strategy and organisation of large corporations, specifically issues such as innovation, corporate entrepreneurship, strategic agility and headquarters-subsidiary relationships.
The AoM Fellowship adds to Professor Birkinshaw’s other fellowships in the British Academy, the Academy of Social Sciences and the Academy of International Business. He has been also awarded Honorary Doctorate degrees by the Stockholm School of Economics (2009) and Copenhagen Business School (2018).
“I am truly honoured by this award,” said Julian Birkinshaw. “Fewer than ten of the current Fellows are based outside North America, so I am looking forward to helping increase the visibility of LBS and other European business schools in the Academy."
