Our minimum requirements
Our requirements are designed to ensure you have everything necessary to submit the strongest application possible. See below for the things you’ll need in order to apply.
All applications are made online, and you need to submit all required supporting documentation, including references and transcripts. An online payment of £50 will be charged for the submission of your completed application.
We’re looking for candidates with a UK honours degree of at least 2:1 or the equivalent if you studied at an overseas institution.
We may consider applicants, who haven’t achieved the minimum at undergraduate level if they have a relevant postgraduate qualification or good master’s degree. If this is the case, we’ll ask you to complete a GMAT or GRE test, so it’s worth getting your application in early to allow enough time.
You will need to upload, via the Application Portal, transcripts of all courses you have taken during a programme of study, with the result you obtained, and with the credit value if applicable.
If you are currently studying, please provide a transcript listing the courses taken during your programme of study, with the results or grades obtained for each.
If you have previously completed degree-level study, please provide a transcript or degree certificate for each degree-level programme you have studied, showing the date the degree was awarded and the final class or grade obtained.
If your documents are not in English, you must also upload a full translation of each document, prepared by a registered translator.
If we make you an offer of admission, we may ask you to send the originals via post and supplying these may be a condition of your offer.
We’re looking for people who can demonstrate previous entrepreneurial experience – whether an early-stage project or a fully-fledged business.
If you have lower grades on your undergraduate degree, your application will be considered, but only if you can demonstrate that you have been exceptionally successful in other ways.
In such cases, you will also need to provide a good score on the GMAT or GRE exams, with above 50th percentile in each verbal and quantitative elements.
Our GMAT institution code is WF1-T3-81. Our GRE code is 7020.
We’ll ask for 2 references – ideally one academic and one professional. If this isn’t possible, two professional references may be accepted. Your referees should be senior people acquainted with your work and able to comment on your academic and professional suitability to undertake the course.
Advise your referees to include the following information:
How long they have known you and in what capacity.
Their opinion of your experience, achievements, professional interests, and the capabilities which you will bring to the programme.
Whether they believe you have the academic and analytic skills to successfully study at master’s level.
Whether they believe you will fit well on a masters-level programme.
Whether they consider you have the enthusiasm, commitment and determination necessary to complete the programme successfully.
We expect your referees to use the online referencing system, but if they are unable to do so or if they don’t have an email address, please contact the ICE Admissions office for further assistance.
Applicants to the programme need to be fluent in English. If you aren’t a native-level English speaker, you’ll need to have one of the following:
- an IELTS minimum overall score of 7.5, with not less than 7.0 in each element. The separate components must have been taken at the same time and in the past two years.
- a TOEFL internet-based test (iBT) minimum overall score of 110, with not less than 25 in each element.
As visa information changes frequently, you are advised to read the most up to date information on the University’s International Student webpages.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct immigration permission to study at the University of Cambridge.
Upon arrival at Cambridge Judge Business School, you’ll be asked to provide your current passport and evidence of your immigration status.
Find out more about the programme and meet prospective tutors, business mentors and students at one of our in-person or online events.
