Engineers and the EMBA

Back to EMBA: our people

I hope to use what I learnt to shape the future of the space industry.

Building on engineering success

While sound technical knowledge will take an engineer so far in their careers, an Executive MBA provides the wide-ranging business knowledge and skills to help you advance to a senior management level and steer teams and organisations towards success.

Why study an Executive MBA at Cambridge?

Cambridge is a centre for technology, engineering and biotech

The region surrounding Cambridge is sometimes referred to as Silicon Fen because of the large cluster of high-tech businesses focusing on software, electronics and biotechnology. Many of these companies have links to the University.  

Being a member of Cambridge Judge Business School offers tremendous networking opportunities within the School, the University and Colleges, and wider Cambridge environment. Linking up ideas with business angels and venture capital companies is important in the formation of new ventures – something that happens a lot in Cambridge.

Designed to work around your life

The Executive MBA is delivered over 16 weekends and four week-long blocks over a 20-month period, making it a feasible commitment for the busiest professionals. It is a demanding schedule, but the coursework involved is designed to complement your organisational responsibilities, as the programme encourages you to apply what you learn to your own role and organisation.  

The weekend format ensures that you can maintain a work-life balance and family responsibilities alongside your study schedule.

Access to an unparalleled network

The programme offers the opportunity for you to network with peers in your cohort and with the Cambridge Judge Business School community. You will also have access to the huge networking potential of the wider University: its students, academics and alumni.  

EMBA participants benefit from unparalleled opportunities to engage with and learn from innovators, entrepreneurs and business leaders who contribute to the programme as guest speakers, mentors and coaches.
