Cambridge Judge Business School

The Launchpad at Cambridge Judge Business School is a learning programme for entrepreneurs who want to launch or grow a high-impact business.

Our programme teaches entrepreneurs the knowledge and skills they require through a combination of online learning and short residential courses. Because many of our students are already running their own businesses, our programme is designed around the entrepreneurs' time constraints.

Students integrate their learning directly into their venture, helping their business grow or start on the right foot. Our active community which includes teachers, mentors, advisors, current as well as previous students expands the learning experience and offers opportunities to pitch to investors and build quality relationships for life.

Our programme is offered in two formats: a one-year Postgraduate Diploma and a two-year Master of Studies in Entrepreneurship. Both options offer part-time entrepreneurial courses to allow entrepreneurs to continue running their startup or devote time to launching it.

The curriculum of the Launchpad programme consists of core modules which must be mastered by every student and elective modules that enhance understanding in selected business areas.

The Launchpad offers specialist pathways which provide a curriculum aimed at the specific needs of your venture. The curriculum is tailored to your individual needs through a robust set of electives, mentoring from industry practitioners and experts as well as networking opportunities. Ultimately, specialist pathways provide a solid foundation in entrepreneurship with specific strengths and expertise in an industrial area or specialist domain.
