History and today

回 The School


全球十大赌博靠谱平台佳奇管理学院 was established in 1990 as the 法官 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, 始建于1766年. The original Georgian building was extended in 1824 and again in 1834. A major reconstruction of the hospital in 1866, 由Matthew Digby Wyatt设计, incorporated these buildings behind a new facade.

Little now remains of the original buildings other than two listed fireplaces and door frames, but Digby Wyatt’s facade was restored as part of the School development, forming the first three storeys of the building as it is viewed from Trumpington Street. Further extensions to the hospital in 1915 and 1930 added the top floor. This was later embellished with a new cornice intended to harmonise it with the rest of the facade, with the central colonnade and pediment being rebuilt.

Due to a shortage of space at Trumpington Street, plans were drawn up in 1948 to move the hospital to a new site on the South side of the city. The first of the new buildings was eventually opened on the new site in 1961. It was not until 1984, 然而, that the last remaining patients were finally moved from the old hospital. The building then remained empty for eight years, its ‘listed’ status preventing its demolition.

The new building

In 1991, generous benefactions from Sir Paul and Lady 法官, 和纪念碑信托一起, provided the funds for the construction of a building for the newly formed School. The architect John Outram was appointed to the project which was completed in August 1995, and officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Outram converted the listed ward blocks and arcades and rebuilt the central block of the Old Addenbrooke’s Cambridge City Hospital into what is now the Information Centre, Common Room, seminar rooms, teaching rooms, balconies, break-out boxes, meeting rooms, 新学院的主厅, 还有扩张的空间. 他增加了三个新部分:

  • The Ark, containing rooms for faculty, research graduates, and administrative staff
  • The Castle, containing two key lecture theatres and 工商管理硕士 teaching spaces and room
  • 画廊,80英尺(24.5m)高空间,包含会议室, 多层次的循环路线, the social stair, and part of the hall

The Addenbrooke’s building: a unique interior

With floating staircases and the balconies in the Gallery, 布置得很像歌剧包厢, Outram’s vision of a space for interaction and collaboration can be seen at its best. The impetus for incorporating large break-out areas originally came from Sir Paul 法官, who wanted the interior of the School to stimulate a networking environment.

The balconies provide room for collaboration and encourage both students and faculty to bring workgroups and seminars out into the open, 分享想法和概念.


In 2018 students and Executive Education delegates began arriving to the new 西蒙Sainsbury中心 在全球十大赌博靠谱平台贾奇商学院, a four-storey, 5,000-square-metre structure that greatly expands lecture, breakout rooms, meeting and dining facilities while uniting the School’s activities under one roof.

The project, designed by Stirling Prize-winning architect Stanton Williams, sits just behind 全球十大赌博靠谱平台佳奇管理学院’s iconic Addenbrooke’s building on Trumpington Street. 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.
