This juxtaposition of venerable institution and cutting-edge innovation makes Judge an excellent destination for ambitious students who want to understand the past so that they can create something new. The school’s intense MBA program, packed into a single year, pushes students to accomplish their best work in a short amount of time.

In return, Cambridge Judge offers students a vast library of resources for success, and gives them unparalleled opportunity to learn from and contribute to some of the best business knowledge in the modern world.

Students will learn not just from case studies, but from real-world clients through the Cambridge Venture Project and the Global Consulting Project.

And while students at Cambridge Judge are immersed in the day-to-day life of a rigorous MBA program, they are also regularly reminded of, and prepared for, the career path they will take upon completion.
