All of our open programmes offer the same high-quality teaching from our world-leading, research-driven faculty. This might be through the experience of face-to-face classes in Cambridge, in a real-time Live Online classroom, or on one of our self-paced online programmes. 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.

Professor Jaideep Prabhu teaches a Live Online programme.

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 Live Online programmes take place over a number of half-day sessions, run in the mornings (UK time).

Dt Benn Lawson teaches on a face-to-face programme.


Face-to-face is a traditional, intense classroom learning experience and is all about hands-on interaction. You will be a part of exercises, debates and conversations, engaging directly with our faculty and your peers. Conversations spill over into breaktimes and meals, forming lasting connections. Share your ideas, develop your network and grow professionally, whilst enjoying the historic city of Cambridge.


Our fully online programmes run over the course of multiple weeks, allowing you the greatest level of flexibility as to where and when you study. The learning is carefully structured in weekly components through a mix of curated videos, live webinars with Cambridge faculty plus Q&A sessions with Live Chat, assignments and discussions. Individual support is available through course Leaders and a dedicated Programme Support Team.

Our online programmes are delivered in collaboration with either Eruditus Executive Education or the Emeritus Institute of Management.
