Cambridge Judge Business School seeks proposals for MBA Cambridge Venture Project

Do you need a market analysis around a new product, treatment or service? Are you looking to pivot into a different market segment or geography entirely? Do you have limited resources to look into these things?

Who will be working with you?

Once your project is selected, you will be allocated a team of five MBA students. Our students are professionals with an average of seven years work experience, from over 40 countries. Our cohort represents a wide range of sectors and job functions, and all students have excellent business and academic references.
If you would like to see some examples of projects completed last year, their impact and feedback, please take a look at our selected CVP case studies.

•    generate insights into potential strategies, opportunities for commercialisation and possible routes to market
