External recognition

Since 1990, Cambridge Judge Business School has forged a reputation as a centre of rigorous and high-impact thinking and transformative education.

Our School strategy is not dictated by rankings, as rankings do not reflect all the things that we want to achieve. Our aim is to create a truly transformative experience for students, to challenge our students to see their careers through a wider lens and encourage them to pursue careers that they can proudly look back on in 30 years and feel they have made a positive difference to their communities and the wider world.

While external recognition of our Business School, programmes and research don't define our mission and strategy, they are a useful external view of the steps we are taking to create one of the world's top business schools.
