Real Humans of Cambridge Judge’s MBA Class of 2019

Cambridge University is an institution steeped in history. Stephen Hawking, Charles Darwin, Sylvia Plath, and Isaac Newton have walked across its quads and sat in its halls. So it’s no wonder that the business school ad com looks for candidates who are “intelligent, curious, and energetic, and keen to contribute to our community, as well as achieve great things for themselves.”  Before we introduce five students who met the criteria, let’s take a closer look at the school and its Class of 2019.

The Cambridge Judge Business School MBA program lasts for one year, but is chock-full of the diversity, real world experience and community that a two-year program would be.  Located in Cambridge, England, the business school is part of a network of 31 colleges of Cambridge University and only an hour train ride from London.

Judge’s one-year program gives students a solid technical foundation that will enable them to succeed wherever their careers may take them. As students move through the program, their collaborative skills are further developed through applied learning opportunities both inside and outside the United Kingdom. The Global Consulting Project, for example, is a hallmark of the program.  Students travel to consult directly for a client—and the stakes are real, as they work on live projects.

The Class of 2019 arrived in Cambridge with diverse experience and histories.  Here is a snapshot of the new group:

  • 693 average GMAT score
  • 51 countries represented
  • 36% female
  • Average age of 29
  • Average of 6 years’ professional experience
    • 46% from industry
    • 25% from finance
    • 24% from consulting
  • 29% of students come from a business/accounting/finance background
  • 27% of students come from an engineering background
  • 24% of students come from social and political sciences/languages backgrounds

Without further ado, check out our spotlight on these exemplary Cambridge Judge Class of 2019 students.
