While many business schools enjoy touting their high profile supporters, Cambridge’s Judge School of Business can claim royalty among theirs.

Last week, HRH Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, took part in the opening festivities for Judge’s Entrepreneurship Centre. His participation was personal, as he is a patron of the centre.

The Duke’s support was explained during his speech at the opening ceremony. He told the crowd that business schools must play a key role in fostering the entrepreneurial spirit of this generation.

Further, he stated that the only way the United Kingdom can lead the world in business is if they follow Cambridge’s lead and provide encouragement and support for these start-ups.

While dedicated entrepreneurship programs are interspersed throughout the top stateside business schools, this is the first of its kind for a leading European business school.

This Entrepreneurship Centre at Judge will join their already strong programs, which include their startup accelerator.

The Duke told the crowd that, “Entrepreneurialism is as much about the experiences you have on the pathway as what you know, and we need to encourage young people to try being entrepreneurial at school in a safe environment, because the more experience you get the more chance there is of you being successful because your know where the pitfalls are.”

With his passion for supporting start-ups, the Duke is often referred to as the “Entrepreneur in Residence” at Buckingham Palace. While attending the opening of the Centre, the Duke took time to meet with a variety of start-ups that the Centre will continue to nourish.

The head of the Centre, Stelios Kavadias, who is also the Director of Research at Judge, touts the success of Judge’s start-up accelerator, as proof of the even greater impact the Centre will make.

Within the past three years, Judge’s start-up accelerator has aided 81 different ventures that have a combined value of £150 million, or $226.7 million.

With this launch of the Entrepreneurship Centre at Judge Business School, Cambridge seeks to become the leader in fostering the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

If you are interested in earning your MBA abroad, and have a passion for entrepreneurship, then Cambridge’s Judge Business School might be the perfect fit!
