Cambridge Executive MBA Program Structure

The University of Cambridge Executive MBA is built for senior-level professionals who wish to pursue an advanced degree with a flexible schedule suited to their specific needs. The course is delivered in the span of 20 months over 16 weekends and four week-long blocks of classes. The Executive MBA also serves a distinct advantage for those looking to study business at an international level, with ease of access and regular travel to various parts of the world. The most recent outside-of-Cambridge location for the study trip was San Francisco, California. Past trips have included China, Argentina, and Brazil.


Through the 20 months, students in the Cambridge Executive MBA program will undertake courses in five separate terms, as well as a week-long orientation process. In each of the five terms, students in the program will participate in a speaker series as well as career coaching and development courses.

The majority of the program is filled by core courses, but Executive MBA students will also take part in an International Business course in their second term, individual projects in each of the final three terms, a team consulting project in term four, and a small batch of electives.
