Cambridge Judge Business School unveils new director

Professor Mauro F. Guillén, a prominent expert, award-winning scholar and teacher at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, has been appointed Director of Cambridge Judge Business School from September 1.
He succeeds Professor Christoph Loch, who has been a superb director of the School since 2011, enhancing its reputational capital around the world.

Professor Guillén has taught at the Wharton School since 1996 and was the Anthony L. Davis Director of the Joseph H. Lauder Institute of Management & International Studies from 2007-2019, leading its first-ever fundraising campaign and launching a new curriculum emphasising hands-on learning experiences. He has long been a champion of diversity.

He has furthered the sociological study of the global system, and advanced comparative research on institutions, artistic movements, organisations, business groups, multinational firms, and digital platforms. 

His scholarship has received numerous distinctions, including Fulbright and Guggenheim fellowships, the Aspen Institute’s Faculty Pioneer Award, the President’s Book Award of the Social Science History Association, and a membership in the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton.

Professor Guillén is also a bestselling author, including the recently published ‘2030: How Today's Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything.’

Professor Stephen J. Toope, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge is thrilled with the appointment. He said: “Professor Mauro Guillén is ideally placed to build on the great work carried out by Professor Christoph Loch and his predecessors. 

“Mauro is a distinguished academic of the highest calibre. His commitment to academic excellence, diversity, and innovation in teaching will ensure Cambridge Judge Business School continues to excel in its next phase of development and growth.”

During the decade Professor Loch served as Cambridge Judge Director, the School strengthened its degree and Executive Education programmes, and boosted its research quality with a strategy that emphasises innovation and impact over quantity. 

The result of this was reflected in an improvement in global programme rankings as well as the School’s standing in the U.K.’s Research Excellence Framework (REF) and other indicators. Over the course of this time, the School doubled in revenues, contributed to the University, and maintained a strong financial position.

The School’s faculty and research centres now engage with global companies and other organisations in areas ranging from restructuring hospitals for better health outcomes, to creating machine-readable financial regulation, to developing cybersecurity policies. 

Cambridge Judge faculty and mentors guide companies varying from tech startups to social enterprises on their journey from idea to team building to scaling up for growth.  

New degree programmes launched during Professor Loch’s tenure include Masters degrees in Social Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Accounting, while new research centres now address such issues as alternative finance, strategic philanthropy, leadership gender diversity and the circular economy. 

Cambridge Judge has also transformed itself physically: the new 5,000-square-metre Simon Sainsbury Centre opened to students and Executive Education delegates in 2018, greatly expanding the School’s lecture, meeting and dining facilities while uniting Cambridge Judge activities under one roof.
