Cambridge Judge Business School will offer a Cambridge MBA student of UK nationality the Professor Nick Oliver Scholarship, worth up to £15,000.

The scholarship is named in memory of Professor Nick Oliver, who taught at CJBS between 1992 and 2007 before leaving to become Head of Edinburgh Business School. Nick originally trained as a psychologist at Edinburgh University (1977-1981), after which he went on to a research assistantship at the Open University (1984-1985) where he was awarded his PhD in 1986, followed by a lectureship in organisational behaviour at Cardiff Business School (1985-1992). He was a highly regarded expert on various aspects of high-performance manufacturing focusing on the auto industry in particular and made important contributions on team and organisational resilience in areas including stress-driven innovation, what can be learned from accidents in commercial aviation, and the safety of self-driving cars.
