Corporate speaker opportunities

Welcoming corporate speakers to Cambridge Judge

Join us on campus to share your industry expertise at one of our hugely popular speaker series or student club events.

Guest speakers are an integral part of the Cambridge Judge Business School offering and an eagerly awaited highlight of the academic year.

Whatever your sector or discipline, we warmly invite you to campus to build your brand, connect with students and share your organisational challenges and triumphs.

Where else in the world can you dine in an 800-year-old College, listening to a speech from the former head of the CIA, just after a course on Leadership and Business Intelligence?”

Groups, societies and clubs

Special interest groups (SIGs) and societies

Help our students expand their knowledge of a particular sector.

Most MBA and MFin students join special interest groups and societies to collaborate in organising events, developing new skills, and networking with their chosen industry.

We encourage businesses to connect with our students and explore opportunities to engage with our SIGS as speakers and event contributors.

Cambridge Business School Club (CBSC)

Looking to build new connections with a high-grade talent pool, and/or establish your brand within a world-leading student community.

Founded and managed solely by students, CBSC helps promote strong relationships between leading industry players and Cambridge Judge Business School students. Each year, the Club organises and leads on lecture series, hard-fought sporting events against other leading business schools, and special interest clubs focused on key areas of interest, such as women in business and social responsibility.

Our students are regularly seeking corporate speakers and sponsorship for their events. Recent sponsors have included HSBC, Cisco, Morimatsu, BP and American Airlines.
