Traditional business models are under increasing pressure, from changes in the market place, rapidly developing innovation and divergent buying patterns. The most successful businesses are those that are willing to embrace change and adapt to the world around them. But where there is change, there is the need for reflection and planning. In business this process is often focused on the all-important business model; the blueprint for an organisation and a road map for success.
In response to the increasing demand for business model innovation, Cambridge Judge Business School is launching its new online programme, the ‘Beyond Innovation: Business Models for Transformative & Competitive Advantage’ programme. The programme launches on 16 October and will offer business leaders around the world the opportunity to access the insights and expertise of Cambridge Judge Business School.

Stelios Kavadias, Director of the Entrepreneurship Centre:
