EnterpriseTECH Graduate


With the December presentation of EnterpriseTECH, we open the programme to one-year MPhil students across the University of Cambridge.

We also welcome applications from PhD students and postdocs who were unable to attend the September PhD+ programme. The lecture and workshop content as well as format and expectations are the same. Teams are crafted to include students of all academic and research backgrounds.

In 2018-2019, MPhil in Chemistry and MPhil in Advanced Chemical Engineering students were sponsored to attend by their departments as well as students on the Future Infrastructure & Built Environment and the Nuclear Energy CDTS. There were 70 in the cohort (16 MPhils, 52 PhDs and two Postdoctoral Research Assistants).

MPhil students should apply now and work on securing financial assistance to cover the programme fee (£500) through their department, College or other source. Please get in touch in you have any specific queries.

Below are the dates for the current programme.

This programme is an amazing course, offering students outside CJBS the unique opportunity to develop their business skills in an exciting and enjoyable way. It provides lectures that teach you how to think in business terms and it allows you to express your creativity and passion for the programme through pitches, a video, along with a final report to put the final touch.
