2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the University of Cambridge’s Alumni Festival. This year all events are taking place online between 17 and 26 September. With events from across the Schools and Colleges of Cambridge, this year’s offerings feature discussions on race, gender, Brexit, climate change, and even genetically modified mutant worms.


Cambridge Judge faculty are involved in eight events during the Festival, a number of which overlap with the final weekend of CJBS Connects. Be part of this year’s story by posting about the events you’re attending on social media with #CJBSConnects #CJBSKnowledge.
