Profile

Since 1990, Cambridge Judge Business School has forged a reputation as a centre of rigorous thinking and transformative education, situated within one of the world’s most prestigious research universities, and in the heart of the Cambridge Cluster, the most successful technology entrepreneurship cluster in Europe.

Cambridge Judge pursues innovation through inter-disciplinary insight, entrepreneurial spirit and collaboration. Cutting-edge research is rooted in real-world challenges and undergraduate, graduate and executive programmes attract innovators, creative thinkers, thoughtful problem-solvers, and current and future leaders, drawn from a huge diversity of backgrounds and countries.

Programmes include a full-time MBA, MFin and a portfolio of executive education programmes. A virtual Middle East Leadership Research Centre has recently launched with the aim of becoming a leading research centre for the study of Middle East-focused leadership and related management issues.

The Cambridge Executive MBA is designed for executives who have already reached a senior level and are now looking at leading roles within their organisations. The programme develops both hard and soft skills, and provides practical, relevant knowledge. It takes place principally in Cambridge, a globally renowned seat of learning, attracting students and faculty from across the world, and convenient for participants to access from anywhere in the world, being within easy, direct reach of the UK’s principle airports.

The Cambridge Executive MBA is designed to fit in with the busy schedules of senior executives and is delivered over 16 weekends and four week-long blocks over a 20-month period, so participants do not need to spend significant amounts of time away from their organisations. As well as providing a relevant curriculum, learning comes from being part of a powerful network of peers, who will form the backbone of an education for senior executives.

The programme is also aimed at creating and giving access to a global network of senior influencers and supporters. This comes from the class itself, as well as the University of Cambridge’s extensive global network.
