The Fowler College of Business at San Diego State University announced that management professor Alex DeNoble was recognized by the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship for his expertise in the field of entrepreneurship education.
DeNoble, executive director of SDSU’s Lavin Entrepreneurship Center, was named one of 79 Longenecker Fellows, who have “made an outstanding contribution to the development, furtherance and benefit of small and medium businesses,” according to an announcement Thursday from the university.
Founded in 1981, USASBE is a national organization whose stated mission is “advancing entrepreneurship education through bold teaching, scholarship, and practice.”
“For over 30 years, Dr. DeNoble’s role in building outstanding academic programs, his research and his unwavering advocacy has led to his expertise in the field of entrepreneurship education,” said Patrick Snyder, executive director for USASBE. “Dr. DeNoble’s recognition as a Longenecker Fellow serves as the culmination of the respect and admiration he has earned from his industry peers.”
DeNoble is the founder of the California Entrepreneurship Educator’s Conference which is held annually at SDSU.
DeNoble, who has been an SDSU faculty member since 1983, said it “is truly humbling to join the ranks of the other Fellows whose work I’ve long admired as some of the very best entrepreneurship academic leaders in the world.”
