For employers

Why sponsor your employees?

The Cambridge EMBA is for senior executives with potential to rise to leading roles within their organisations. As executives progress in their careers, their functional expertise becomes less important and is replaced by a need to have a broad, comprehensive understanding of the constituent functions of their business. They also need a strong grasp of the global business environment in order to make informed, strategic decisions.  Well-developed 'soft-skills' are also essential in order to manage and lead effectively. 

We are keen to work with companies interested in developing their employees and preparing them for more senior roles.  If you would like to find out more or discuss any aspects of sponsoring employees, please contact:

Programme format

The format of the programme has been carefully designed so that participants spend as little time away from their work as possible.  Delivered over a period of 20 months, the programme is delivered over 16 weekends (starting Friday lunch-times) and four week-long sessions.

Practical and relevant

Our live projects reflect our belief in 'learning by doing'. We work closely with global blue-chip companies and international organisations to ensure participants tackle projects which have real impact. Live projects provide a rare opportunity to explore new industries and test new approaches.  We've built strong relationships with a wide range of multinational corporations and FTSE 100 companies who have acted as our sponsor projects, and we've worked with companies across the world. 

Our programme includes two real-time projects:

  • A week-long group project where participants work in small teams consulting for a major organisation
  • An individual project where participants focus on a business challenge faced by him/herself or the organisation for which he/she works. 

Individual projects

The Executive MBA Individual Projects can be about any practical aspect of business or management. They give participants the opportunity to explore an area of particular interest, and allow for a deeper, more critical and more reflective exploration of their chosen topic.

Our participants' Individual Projects represent a contribution to new knowledge, and some of these are subsequently published as papers for academic, practitioner, or policy audiences.
