There’s a uniquely creative, innovative atmosphere [at Cambridge], unlike any I’ve encountered anywhere else in the world.

The Executive MBA Admissions Committee aims to create a class of talented, energetic and creative team players, diverse in both professional experience and nationality. Our participants bring with them a huge amount of knowledge and experience which enables the class to learn from peers at a similar level of seniority.

Our classes have representatives from a wide variety of industry sectors and we try to ensure no sector or profession is overrepresented. Participants come from all around the world, from as far away as Canada and China. This means we have a very interesting and dynamic class and our participants tend to have a very diverse outlook. We think this is an important differentiator of the Cambridge programme, as much of the learning on an Executive MBA comes from interaction with classmates.

It was not only the reputation of Cambridge, but the people who made the big difference – the personalised touch, the emphasis on the cooperative approach and the international focus. The best ambassadors of the programme were the previous students who talked to me about their experience.
