Professor Mauro F Guillén becomes Director of Cambridge Judge Business School

Leadership Instincts

Professor Mauro F Guillén, a prominent expert, award-winning scholar and teacher at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, has been appointed the next Director of Cambridge Judge Business School. Professor Guillén will officially begin his role as Director on 1 September 2021, succeeding Professor Christoph Loch, who has been Director of the School since 2011.

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 membership in the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton.

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 UK’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.
