Our community

The MSt in Social Innovation attracts a vibrant community of students, faculty, Fellows of the Centre for Social Innovation, and a range of external practitioners who engage with the programme during the residential weeks.

The faculty at Cambridge Judge Business School are energetic and international thought-leaders. Our lecturers inspire through their domain knowledge as well as their diverse cultural backgrounds, and keep in touch with students long after the programme. We practice an informal and collegiate communication style. Apart from teaching on this programme, the faculty also teach on the MBA and Executive MBA programmes and train executive audiences.

There is no typical MSt in Social Innovation student. Our cohorts are characterised by a fair gender balance and include students from across the world and of ages ranging from 22 to 60 years old and above. Their professional experience is also very diverse, including entrepreneurs and middle to senior level leaders in NGOs, public bodies, and the private sector.

In this section we interview candidates to the MSt in Social Innovation from the first cohort (2016/18).
