Dean of our School of Business is conferred with national fellowship

The Dean of the our Business School has been given a prestigious award in recognition of the contribution her work makes to society.

Professor Zoe Radnor, who was appointed the first Business School Dean at Leicester last year, has achieved the distinction of a Fellowship of the Academy of Social Sciences.

Fellows are drawn from academics, practitioners and policymakers across the social sciences. They have been recognised after an extensive peer review process for the excellence and impact of their work through the use of social science for public benefit. This includes substantial contributions and leadership in various fields, including higher education, social, economic and environmental policy, government, law, charitable foundations and think tanks.

Before joining the University, Professor Radnor, who is also Professor of Service Operations Management, worked in some of the top business schools in the UK. Her Fellowship recognises her contribution to social science research.

Professor Radnor joins an illustrious group of distinguished academicians at the University of Leicester who have now been awarded fellowships of professional bodies in their disciplines.
