Cambridge Judge Business School leverages the power of
academia for real world impact
The School is in the business of the transformation of individuals, of organisations and society. What does that mean in practice? It means we work with every student and organisation at a deep level, identifying important problems and questions, challenging and coaching people to find answers, and creating new knowledge.
We bring forward the latest thinking from academia and professional practice, and apply our combined knowledge to specific business situations to turn this thinking into action.
We believe in encouraging and supporting people to create new products and businesses, pursuing goals for intellectual gain and contributing to social enterprise. And we achieve excellence in the quality of our research insights and our educational engagement, developing knowledge both for its own sake and to help others make a difference.
Research underpins all that we do at Cambridge Judge Business School and our research programme combines the highest international academic standards with the practical needs of business and society.
The School has a world-class faculty of around 55 members, representing all continents, whose research interests span the globe and the full spectrum of business issues. Many are leaders in their field, directing cutting-edge research and consulting for businesses and government.
