Projects & placements

Our major capstone project forms part of the practical application of concepts built up on the programme:

Final Group Project

During Lent and Easter Terms you undertake a final capstone project in groups of four to six students. The final group project (FGP), which is double weighted, is linked to Cambridge Judge Business School's subject groups and is based on work with a major public or private technology-intensive organisation. Assessment is via a 12,000 word final report produced under faculty supervision and a final presentation to the host organisation.

Past projects have involved a range of leading public and private sector organisations from around the world and many of these projects have been hosted by our alumni. A sample of project host organisations from the past few years includes:

Public sector

Private sector

Third sector/international organisations

Please note that the details and timing of individual components of the programme may vary from year to year.
