Custom programmes

A customised executive education programme often forms part of a wider strategic effort to lift organisational performance and hone leadership effectiveness. Working closely with you, we will co-design a programme to support your strategic and corporate initiatives. Our programmes are rigorous and highly immersive. We look to engineer the content and approach to our specific context, delivering sustainable and long-lasting change.

Cambridge Live Online

Our Live Online programmes bring Cambridge to you wherever you are, delivering the best aspects of a face-to-face learning experience here in Cambridge, into your office or home. Using technologies we are all now familiar with, you will take part in breakout groups with real time interaction between your peers and Faculty. You will engage in realistic simulations or use software-enabled “sprint” design development. We also introduce guest speakers, live “Cambridge Union”-style debates and panels of experts and practitioners into the class.

Our programmes offer the unique opportunity to benefit from small class sizes, high levels of interaction between faculty and peers, and the chance to network with a diverse group from around the globe.
