Masters in Entrepreneurship programme structure

Entrepreneurship students laughing

The Master of Studies in Entrepreneurship at Cambridge Judge Business School is a two-year, part-time programme. It allows students to absorb and apply the entrepreneurship knowledge while continuing to build or grow a business.

This is achieved through the combination of online and in-person delivery of the learning material.

Online learning

Most of the learning material is provided through our online learning platform. This flexible virtual learning environment (VLE) supports face-to-face teaching, facilitates online discussions between students, and holds all the learning resources for the various courses.

Residential weeks in Cambridge

During the two-year part-time master’s programme, there are four residential weeks in Cambridge. The purpose of each one-week residential is to give students the networking opportunity to meet each other to interact, exchange ideas and build valuable connections for the future.

The residential weeks will take place in:

  • 4-8 September 2023
  • 18-22 March 2024
  • 24-28 June 2024
  • 2-6 December 2024

If circumstances require, you have the option to leave after the first year with a Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship Studies (PGDES). 

Residential weeks offer many opportunities to interact in person with peers, faculty, mentors and contributors. As the residential weeks constitute an important part of the programme, attendance at residentials is compulsory.

During the residential weeks, you will have lectures with the faculty of Cambridge Judge Business School. These often take on a workshop-like character where students interact in small groups in hands-on exercises that facilitate the learning of particularly essential topics.

The residential weeks feature seminar days and other interactive workshops.
