Cambridge

Teaching excellence

Cambridge is a world-renowned seat of learning. It is synonymous with research and teaching excellence. Many faculty are leaders in their field directing cutting-edge research, consulting for top businesses and advising governments. Read more about faculty and speakers on the programme. Participants benefit from all the resources, networking opportunities and reputation of the University of Cambridge.

Technology and enterprise

Cambridge is a European hub of high-tech and entrepreneurship, attracting 25 per cent of UK venture capital. The city is surrounded by science parks, incubators and innovation centres, which are home to a mixture of start-ups, local high-tech businesses and UK subsidiaries of major multinationals attracted by the city's lively, collaborative community. Many of the businesses have connections to the University, and over 1,600 firms employing more than 30,000 people have been created as a result of the collaboration between academia and the private sector. This collaboration is sometimes referred to as the 'Cambridge Phenomenon'.

[The programme] gave me a framework within which I could understand the challenges that were facing the Foundation, particularly around marketing, scaling and working capital flow. At both Broadcom and the Foundation, the EMBA gave me more confidence in negotiations, and helped me think creatively in terms of structuring business deals.
