Health Leadership & Enterprise
Based at Cambridge Judge Business School we provide the platform for the 20% of school faculty engaged in health-related research. We facilitate links between the faculty, the wider university, MBA and research students, and public and private practitioners to form multidisciplinary teams to effectively address key challenges of the healthcare and pharma sectors. The centre supports these teams in the development of their research programmes and the effective translation of their research back into practice.
