The Cambridge MBA

Consistently ranked as a top global one-year programme, the Cambridge MBA is a complete immersion in business, delivering a unique learning journey and global career advancement to its graduates.

Each year 210 professionals from over 40 countries join the programme. We select a class with balanced diversity, no single nationality or background dominates, giving students a range of national, global and industry insights.

The smaller class size allows students to create closer relationships and become a committed member of the School network. We maintain high admissions standards in order to recruit a cohort where students will challenge each other and engage in valuable peer-to-peer exchange. The current class has an average GMAT score of 696 and a minimum of three years’ work experience, with the class average being six years.

A practical focus

The emphasis of The Cambridge MBA is on the practical applications of business theory through unique collaborative projects, workshops and seminars. There are four opportunities for practical projects, two of which are live consulting projects with real clients.

The Cambridge Venture Project (CVP) and the Global Consulting Project (GCP) are undertaken as teams, working with a client for several weeks. These projects develop students’ global understanding, as well as giving them the chance to explore future career interests and to make connections with organizations who may become future employers. This year, students are working with companies as diverse as Carnegie Hall, Uber, Google and the World Health Organization and in locations such as Kenya and Amsterdam.

The GCP is a highlight of The Cambridge MBA...
