AOM member Julian Birkinshaw has been named the next Dean of Ivey Business School. His five-year appointment is effective 1 August 2024.
Birkinshaw joins Western from the London Business School in the U.K., where he’s held a variety of posts for the past 25 years, most recently as Vice-Dean.
A Fellow of the British Academy, Strategic Management Society and the Academy of Management, Birkinshaw holds honorary degrees from Copenhagen Business School and the Stockholm School of Economics.
When he decided to advance his studies in business, he was keen to study in North America, “the home of the MBA.”
“Doing my MBA at Ivey was very formative. I loved it,” Birkinshaw said. So much so that he remained at Western to pursue his PhD in business administration. His doctoral work saw him place as a finalist for the Richard N. Farmer international
business award in 1995 and as winner of the Barry M. Richman award in 1996.
It also marked Birkinshaw’s beginnings as “a believer in innovation and agility,” key aspects he believes business firms ─ and business schools ─ should embrace to stay relevant in a time of rapid change and disruption.
