I had a great conversation with my guidance counsellor at the University of Chicago. I told her that I’d had a couple of really strong entrepreneurial experiences as an undergraduate and wanted to know where she would recommend for me to take the next step to develop more sophisticated business acumen. She told me about a variety of business school programmes and recommended that I look into the Cambridge Judge Business School MPhil in Management.

The Cambridge MPhil in Management is the perfect preparation for anyone with a non-business background. The programme includes core topics that are necessary to succeed in contemporary business leadership roles, while at the same time allowing the flexibility to explore topics of personal interest through the variety of offered electives.
