What is the duration of the programme?
The Business Doctorate is a full-time, four-year programme that requires you to be resident in Cambridge for 24 weeks in your first year, and for at least four weeks per year for the subsequent three years of the programme. Although you are not resident in Cambridge for the final three years, you are expected to be in regular contact with your supervisor and demonstrating appropriate progress. The workload of the programme is substantial and equivalent to that of a full-time PhD (a minimum of 24 weeks of study per year).
When does the programme start?
The programme starts at the beginning of October.
Can I work part-time while I am enrolled on the programme?
The BusD programme is designed for part-time work, however it is not a part-time programme. Students may be flexible about how the programme is integrated into their existing work commitments. You will have to be in Cambridge during the three terms of the first year of the programme (24 weeks in total) and for at least four weeks every year in the subsequent three years. You should also be aware that the workload of the programme is equivalent to that of a full-time PhD, and so is substantial and demanding.
(on a student visa) must not undertake their work-based activity taking place in years two, three and four within the UK, as this visa type does not permit candidates to engage in UK-based employment.
Can I visit Cambridge Judge Business School/talk to faculty or someone from Admissions in person?
Yes, visits can be arranged and are in fact encouraged after your application has been received and evaluated.
