On 1 May 2018, the Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) celebrated the opening of the Simon Sainsbury Centre presided over by his Royal Highness the Duke of York.

The Simon Sainsbury Centre is an extension to Cambridge Judge Business School's iconic Addenbrooke's building on Trumpington Street. The new four-storey, 5,000-square-metre structure expands Cambridge Judge Business School’s lecture theatres, breakout rooms, meeting spaces and dining facilities. Crucially it unites the School’s activities under one roof.

After years of planning and construction, in January this year the Simon Sainsbury Centre opened its doors to students, academics and Executive Education delegates. The project was supported in part by a generous donation from the Monument Trust, whose founder Simon Sainsbury was also one of the Business School’s original benefactors.

The Simon Sainsbury Centre marks a new chapter in the history of Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS), bringing together all parts of our community - pre and post-experience students, Executive Education clients; faculty and external partners - enabling us to continue solving real-world problems in even more diverse and creative ways.

Professor Christoph Loch, Director of CJBS
