San Diego State University management professor Alex DeNoble was recognized by the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) as a Justin G. Longenecker Fellow during the organization's annual conference earlier this month.

DeNoble, who serves as executive director of SDSU’s Lavin Entrepreneurship Center, is one of only 79 Longenecker Fellows recognized for outstanding contributions to the development, furtherance and benefit of small and medium businesses.

“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, who joined SDSU in 1983 and is currently a professor in the Fowler College of Business, is the recipient of numerous teaching and research awards and the founder of the California Entrepreneurship Educators Conference, which is held annually at SDSU.

“I am honored to be recognized as a Longenecker Fellow,” said DeNoble. “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.”
