Sanjeev Gupta


I am a part-time Lecturer at Kingston Business School, specialising in Healthcare Leadership and Operations. Due to my experience outside of academia, I lecture a wide variety of subjects including Project Management, Operations Management, Health Services Marketing, Information for Health, and other subjects as required.

I am an alumnus of KBS (my MBA was completed here in 2011), and I immediately began lecturing following this, initially as a Visiting Fellow, then an HPL and now as a part-time member of staff.

In my main roles outside of the University, I am the Managing Director of two companies (a management consultancy and a research organisation), and a Professor at another business school. I also am the Chair of a couple of organisations and work for the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) on the Education and Digital Skills Panel, and the IT Policy Panel. Until recently, I was the Vice-Chair of the Health and Care Executive at the British Computer Society (BCS).

Prior to these roles, I have been a CIO in the NHS, a CTO for a FTSE 250 company and have worked across the globe in many management and technology roles. 

My experience in strategy, operations, management, technology and research all allow me to bring real-life examples to the classroom, which helps engage all students. 

In my other professional life, I am passionate about change management, especially in the healthcare and education sectors, where we service a number of clients.

Business, knowledge transfer and international

Over my varied career, I have worked in a number of private and public sector organisations. For much of my professional career, I was a senior healthcare leader working across several disciplines. As well as working at CIO level in local Trusts, I have worked at Regional and National levels, leading on all information reporting for London NHS trusts, working on emergency planning and preparedness, and on National solutions such as the National Programme for IT (lately Connecting for Health) and the digital retinopathy programme for England.

While working for the private sector, I designed a number of healthcare solutions for large Trusts and Regions, as well as having led healthcare bids for organisations such as McKinsey's, KPMG, Accenture, etc. 

I continue to remain closely aligned to public sector work, and am a Professor of Public Sector Strategy and Operations for Apsley Business School.
