Why CJBS? We leverage the power of academia for real world impact
Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) is in the business of transformation - of individuals, of organisations and society.
What does that mean in practice? It means we work with every student and organisation at a deep level, identifying important problems and questions, challenging and coaching people to find answers, and creating new knowledge.
It means we bring forward the latest thinking from academia and professional practice, and apply our combined knowledge to specific business situations to turn it into action.
It means we believe in encouraging and supporting people to create new products and businesses, pursuing goals for intellectual gain, and contributing to social enterprise.
It means we achieve excellence in the quality of our research insights and our educational engagement. We develop knowledge both for its own sake and to help others make a difference.
It means we train students and clients from all over the world, reward performance in our own staff and enable performance in our students and clients.
It means we contribute to society by building sustainability into the heart of our business education and research.
This combination of the latest thinking from academia and professional practice, in turn, enables us to develop greater knowledge and better methods in order to have an impact on the world in which we live and work.Priscilla Du Preez / Unsplash

At the heart of CambridgeCambridge Judge Business School provides unrivalled opportunities for internal and external networking. Our faculty and PhD students have the chance to work with partners in research either in collaboration or through arranging sponsorship of specific pieces of work.
As well as being part of a world-renowned research university, CJBS benefits from a rich local business community. Cambridge is surrounded by science parks, incubators and innovation centres. The Cambridge Cluster or Silicon Fen is now the most successful technology cluster in Europe and one of the most successful in the world.
Many of these businesses have connections to the University of Cambridge. To date, innovators based at the University and in the wider local community have developed over 1,600 firms employing more than 30,000 people. Collaboration between the University and the private sector continues to influence the growth and prosperity of what is known as the 'Cambridge Phenomenon'.
As a student at CJBS, you will also benefit from access to an impressive range of business support, including Accelerate Cambridge, which supports the students and faculty in the creation of new ventures, and Cambridge Enterprise, the University's technology commercialisation company.
The Entrepreneurship Centre provides a portfolio of programmes and connections to relevant societies, enterprise champions and departments across the University of Cambridge. It is closely linked to the business creation competition run by Cambridge University Entrepreneurs and is responsible for courses on the Entrepreneurship Concentration within the School's MBA programme.
Cambridge Judge Business School is also part of the University Enterprise Network.
