    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 a membership in the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. He is an elected fellow of the Sociological Research Association and the Macro Organizational Behavior Society.

    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 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", says Professor Stephen J. Toope, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge. "I am delighted that Mauro will be joining us and very much look forward to working with him."

    "I am thrilled to become Director of Cambridge Judge Business School, at the University of Cambridge, and to further its educational and research mission", says Professor Guillén.
