    Cambridge Summer School Programme

    Leading Banks in the Post Pandemic World – Leadership Innovation in the New Era

    After a three-year hiatus largely due to the challenges brought on by the global pandemic, the Asian Banking School (ABS) is pleased to present the return of the Cambridge Summer School Programme for its fourth year.

    Designed especially for senior executives in financial-related sectors, the Programme equips participants with the know-how to embrace the journey towards a successful innovative organisation ready to compete in the future. It provides leading edge insights from research at the University of Cambridge, as well as methodologies and frameworks to help participants re-think how to lead the transformation of their organisation.

    The Cambridge Summer School is a flagship programme of the Asian Banking School in collaboration with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School Executive Education. We believe that this continued collaboration with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School speaks volumes on our dedication and determination to provide world class learning opportunities for the industry. Consistently ranked as one of the top universities worldwide, the University of Cambridge is one of the oldest universities, one of the largest in the United Kingdom and its reputation for outstanding academic achievement is undisputed.

To this end, he studies both the contextual factors (e.g. regional and institutional differences) that enable innovation and social change as well as the individual factors (e.g. demographic and identity differences) that motivate and sustain individuals’ commitment to such change. He studies these factors primarily in contexts such as social entrepreneurship and business incubators/accelerators, where attempts to create, introduce, and sustain social change and innovation are particularly important and challenging.

    Professor Matthew Grimes currently serves as Associate Editor of the Academy of Management Journal. He also serves on the editorial review boards of Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Review, and Journal of Business Venturing. He previously served on the editorial review boards for Entrepreneurship, Theory, & Practice and Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal.

  • Programme Venue

    Cambridge Judge Business School was established in 1990 as the Judge Institute of Management Studies, a focal point for management teaching and research in the University. The building housing the School is a refurbishment and extension of the old Addenbrooke's Hospital, first established on the site in 1766. In 1991, generous benefactions from Sir Paul and Lady Judge, together with the Monument Trust, provided the funds for the construction of a building for the newly formed School. The project was completed in August 1995 and officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

    In 2018, the School opened their new Simon Sainsbury Centre, a four-storey, 5,000-square-metre structure that greatly expanded lecture, breakout rooms, meeting and dining facilities while uniting the School's activities under one roof. The Centre, designed by Stirling Prize-winning architect Stanton Williams, sits just behind the School's iconic Addenbrooke's building on Trumpington Street.

    The Simon Sainsbury Centre is the programme venue for the 2023 Cambridge Summer School Programme. With its modern facilities and airconditioned classrooms, the Centre provides a conducive environment for learning especially during warm Summer days.

    Downing College was founded in 1800 and is set on twenty acres of beautiful grounds and gardens. It was the only college to be added to Cambridge University between 1596 and 1869, and is often described as the oldest of the new colleges and the newest of the old. It has been named one of the two most eco-friendly Cambridge colleges and is located directly behind the Cambridge Judge Business School making it the perfect place for participants to stay at.

    Accommodation will be provided from 28 July – 3 August 2019 at Downing’s hotel-standard en-suites. Serviced daily, all rooms have private modern bathrooms complete with toiletries, a welcome tray, television and wi-fi.

    Restored to its original early nineteenth century decor, the award-winning Hall of Downing College is the breakfast venue for the Programme.

    There will be a guided tour of Cambridge and punting on the River Cam, which is one of the most traditional activities of Cambridge University. The day ends with Welcome Drinks at the Judge Business School.

    Gonville & Caius College, commonly referred to as just Caius (pronounced 'keys'), is the fourth oldest College in the University of Cambridge. The College was first founded as Gonville Hall by Edmund Gonville in 1348, and refounded in 1557 by John Caius as Gonville and Caius College. One of its more notable alumni is Stephen Hawking.

    Sidney Sussex College is located in the historic heart of Cambridge. The College was founded on St. Valentine’s Day in 1596 by Lady Frances Sidney, Countess of Sussex and is one of the smaller Cambridge Colleges. The College ranks fourth highest among Cambridge Colleges in Nobel Prizes won by alumni.
