The Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship Admissions Committee aims to create a class of energetic, creative and proactive individuals with distinct entrepreneurial ambition and potential.
The programme offers the opportunity to network with your peers and with the wider Cambridge Judge Business School community. In addition you'll have access to the huge networking potential of the University: its students, academics and alumni.
One of the key advantages for students of the Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship programme at Cambridge is the chance to access and exploit the rich resources available to develop personal and business networks, innovations and ventures. The area, which is known as the 'Silicon Fen', has evolved into one of the world's most enterprising networks of people and companies.
Cambridge is surrounded by science parks, innovation centres, incubators and accelerators, which are home to a mixture of start-ups, local high-tech businesses and UK subsidiaries of international companies such as Unilever, Microsoft and Philips. Business support and investment can be found via venture capitalist companies, business angels, and numerous informal and formal business networks. The Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning's network of over 300 entrepreneurs and experts can provide support for those from different industry sectors looking to develop social, creative and not-for-profit enterprises as well as technology-based enterprises.

Learning from faculty, mentors and entrepreneurs
Students on the Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship programme benefit from the small group teaching that is the hallmark of the University of Cambridge: practical and challenging learning with experienced faculty and entrepreneurs that underpins the teaching philosophy.
The emphasis is on action learning to develop your skills and test your ideas in a safe environment. Rigorous lectures and case studies on entrepreneurs using a variety of media are led by a range of entrepreneurs and academics to highlight the breadth of entrepreneurship. Students participate in group and individual mentored sessions, present their enterprise project to a panel to gain feedback, engage in discussions with innovators in formal and informal sessions and have the opportunity to meet many entrepreneurs from our network throughout the programme.
