Cambridge University's business school, the Judge Institute of Management, has joined forces with FT Knowledge to develop an executive MBA.
It will combine access to management experts with innovative online and interactive learning options. The two-year course will include four intensive residential sessions supported by online distributed materials and collaborative learning sessions.
Students will work in virtual teams of eight to ten, supported by subject experts, learning process tutors and a team administrator. Entry requirements, programme structure, academic content and examinations will be the same as for the full-time residential MBA.
The degree will be online from September. Students of the new MBA course will access up to 35 per cent of the programme through open-learning materials developed by staff at the institute and FT Knowledge and delivered via new technologies.
