The Cambridge Master of Business Administration at the University of Cambridge adds an extra dimension to the MBA, expanding networks and learning opportunities, and launching our graduates into a global alumni network of 200,000+. Within this global network, we create an intimate, personalised learning experience during the MBA, with a class size optimised for lively discussion and a high-touch teaching style.

Our Global Consulting Project is a highlight of the MBA, sending small groups of students to consult for client companies anywhere in the world. This is not just a company visit or case-study, but a live project with real outcomes required by the client.

Creativity and innovation is at the heart of our approach, leveraging the nearby start-up hub, the 'Silicon Fen', and the activities of the Centre for Entrepreneurship here at CJBS.
