Professor David Storey, OBE has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy. Professor Storey is Emeritus Professor of Enterprise, Department of Strategy and Marketing at the University of Sussex Business School.
The British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences. Every year, the Academy elects a limited number of new Fellows from across the disciplines of humanities and social sciences, through a very rigorous process. In 2022, 85 Fellows were elected to the Fellowship. Of these, 52 Fellows were from 24 universities across the UK. Only two of these Fellows are working in the subject area of Business and Management.
Professor Storey is a leading researcher, expert and author in entrepreneurship and small business. His work is regularly published in multiple business journals, and he acts as a consultant for governments and organisations around the world.
Professor Storey said: “I am honoured to join the British Academy’s Fellowship. My scholarly work examines the factors influencing the creation, growth and exit of new and small firms. Of these, my prime concentration has been on government and financial institutions.”
Professor Steven McGuire, Dean and Head of the Business School said: “I’d like to congratulate David whole heartedly on his Fellowship of the British Academy. This is a fantastic recognition of his research and academic achievements. It is also the first Academy Fellowship awarded to a faculty member of the Business School since it was created.”
