The official announcement of Prof Christoph Loch’s appointment as the Director of the Cambridge Judge Business School wef 1 September 2011 was made this morning. Until then, Geoff Meeks will continue as Acting Director of the School.
There will obviously be a lot of interest and speculation from all stakeholders in what Christoph’s direction for the school will be — one enthusiastic MBA2011 from Israel has already told me that he is excited to see that the new Director has extensive experience in Israel! But after having worked in the business school for a year and a half, I have come to understand that it is a complex organisation operating in a competitive environment. So, I would suggest that people give the new Director time to crystallise his thinking.
