Sept. 20, 2012 - PRLog -- The British Academy recently elected Professor Julian Birkinshaw as a fellow. Prof Birkinshaw was rewarded and recognised for his extensive research on international management, strategic management training, and management innovation. He is also the Deputy Dean at London Business School and the co-founder of the Management Lab (MLab). Julian has also published several books one of which is titled Reinventing Management for managers wishing to create an organisation “that is truly fit for the future.”

The British Academy is the UK’s national body for the humanities and social sciences. The academy recognises and supports contributors from the UK and abroad that have made a significant impact to the humanities and social sciences. There are currently only 900 scholars representing the best. A range of subjects within the field are covered including: philosophy, history of art and music, law, and psychology. The criterifon is academic distinction in the field mainly shown through research and publications. The Academy’s council comes up with a list of nominations and fellows are then elected during the Annual General Meeting in July.  

Professor Birkinshaw is the third fellow to be selected from London Business School after Hélène Rey and Richard Portes. Speaking on the fellowship, Julian said, “It is a terrific honour to be elected to the Fellowship.  The field of management only has about six Fellows, yet it accounts for around 20% of academics in the social sciences in the UK.” He continued to say that this is a great opportunity to spread the influence of management training studies within the UK academic industry.

Newly recruited fellows contribute in sustaining the Academy’s activities. President of the Academy, Sir Adam Roberts said, “Their presence in the Academy will help it to sustain its support for research across the humanities and social sciences, and to inspire public interest in these disciplines.”
