Cambridge Judge Business School, formerly known as the Judge Institute of Management Studies, is the business school of the University of Cambridge. Established in 1954 as Management Studies in the Engineering Department, in 1990 as Judge Institute for Management Studies, and in 2005 as Judge Business School.
The School is a provider of management education and is consistently ranked as one of the world's top business schools, with the Cambridge MBA programme ranked among the top in the world by Bloomberg, the Financial Times, BusinessInsider, US News & World Report and Forbes Magazine. It is named after Sir Paul Judge, a founding benefactor of the school. The School is part of the Department of Engineering within the School of Technology.
History and architecture
In 1991, benefactions from Sir Paul and Lady Judge, together with the Monument Trust, provided the funds for the construction of a building for the newly formed business school. Architect John Outram was appointed to the project and work on the building was completed in August 1995 and officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II.
The Judge Institute of Management Studies was renamed Judge Business School in September 2005. It adopted the title Cambridge Judge Business School during 2010, and revised its logo to read "University of Cambridge Judge Business School" rather than "Cambridge Judge Business School" in November 2010.
Cambridge is widely regarded as one of the top business schools in the world: its MBA program was ranked 10th worldwide in the Financial Times Global MBA Rankings (top ranked one-year programme in the UK), 6th in Businessweek and 3rd in Forbes Top International Business Schools. In the 2013/2014 QS Global 200 Business Schools Report the school placed 13th, 8th in the world by Business Insider, 10th by the Telegraph's top European business schools and 37th by the Economist.
In the field of marketing, the report lists the Cambridge MBA as the best European program and as the fourth best program in the world.
The Cambridge MBA was also featured in the top ten business schools in the world in three key areas of the 2014 FT survey: it was ranked 10th for career progression, 8th for value for money and 7th for aims achieved.
Cambridge ranked 2nd worldwide on the 2014 Financial Times rankings of Masters in Finance.
The School is particularly strong in entrepreneurship and innovation management, and offers related courses and seminars via the Cambridge Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning. It has its own accelerator, and it has close ties with Cambridge Enterprise, the university's technology transfer office, as well as with the local high-tech cluster known as the Silicon Fen.

Master of Finance (MFin)
The Master of Finance is a one-year specialist finance course designed for people with at least two years' experience in the finance and banking world who wish to accelerate their career in finance.
The course is designed to give students a rigorous grounding in the theory and practice of finance. It combines a set of core courses that provide the theoretical and statistical foundations for a range of electives that cover the main areas of applied finance. There are three compulsory projects and one optional one, which help students to integrate theory and practice. The other part of the course is the City Speaker Series, which is a weekly series of practitioner talks aimed at providing up to date financial knowledge and commentary from sector experts.
The MPhil Finance is a one-year postgraduate course in finance designed for people with no prior work experience. The programme combines advanced study and research and is especially suitable for students intending to continue to a PhD although the majority of graduates decides to work in the financial industry. Based on the number of applications, the MPhil Finance programme is the most competitive degree offered by the whole of the University of Cambridge; applicants need the equivalent to a first class degree to even be considered. Students on the MPhil Finance programme can choose from a variety of modules offered by the business school, the Faculty of Economics and the Maths Faculty.
