The University of Cambridge sits about 50 miles north of London. The surrounding area has adopted the nickname "Silicon Fen," a nod to the hundreds of tech-based companies nearby. Visitors may not immediately understand how an 800-year-old university laid the groundwork for a city with a tech-focused business climate. But the story behind Cambridge’s Judge Business School puts part of that evolution into context.
Cambridge first started teaching management in the university’s engineering department in 1954. The courses emphasized science and innovation, two themes that resonate in the program today. The Judge School opened in 1990 and started offering a one-year, full-time MBA in 1991. The school introduced a Masters of Finance degree in 2008 and an Executive MBA in 2009.
Total business school enrollment is now 377, about 165 of whom are enrolled in the full-time MBA program. The school admits about 27 percent of MBA applicants, and tuition for both residents and nonresidents is $55,900.
