Entrepreneurship & intrapreneurship

Our Executive MBA programmes have much to offer entrepreneurs and individuals considering entrepreneurship. By learning from leading business faculty, building a powerful network of diverse business professionals and working on assignments that provide opportunities for sandboxing ideas for innovations, our participants and alumni go on to apply their new-found skills either within their existing organisations or in new start-ups.

Why study an Executive MBA at Cambridge?

Cambridge is a centre for technology, engineering & biotech investment

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 Business 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.

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.

Designed to work around your life

We offer two Executive MBA programmes, with different start-dates and different formats, so you can choose the one which best fits your work schedule and best suits your work-life balance.

  • The Cambridge 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.
  • The Global Executive MBA is delivered in week-long blocks, around half of which take place in Cambridge, and half in Shenzhen, China.

The schedules are demanding, 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.
