Women and the EMBA

The structure of the programme, which meant I was in Cambridge one weekend every month, helped me greatly in terms of maintaining balance between my work life, personal life and my studies.
Shirley Okere, Director of Regional Quality Operations, Pfizer

Designed to work around your life

The Executive MBA is designed so that you can continue working and enjoying family life while earning a Cambridge degree. Delivered over 16 weekends (Friday and Saturday) and four week-long blocks, the programme requires just 34 days out of the office over the 20-month period.

Scholarships for women

The Executive MBA Scholarship for Women is awarded to two outstanding female candidates each year and will contribute 30 per cent towards the tuition fee. We also offer circumstances-based Executive MBA bursaries and industry sector-based scholarships. Recipients of the Scholarship for Women act as ambassadors for the Executive MBA, making positive contributions to the class and playing an active role in women’s leadership at the Business School.
