We are especially interested in the professional skills you’ve developed, and how the Cambridge and Global EMBA will accelerate your development. You’ll need to demonstrate your employment status when you apply for one of our EMBA programmes. You’re also expected to keep working full-time while you study so you apply what you learn and share your experiences with classmates. We welcome applications from contractors and consultants.
