The cambridge website says "Enquiries can be submitted via the Cambridge MBA portal"

However after logging to the portal , i don't see any place where i can ask any question.
Could you please redirect me to the correct place.

We're trying to get some advice on any new changes but the post-study work visa was supposed to close anyway, and our non-EU students from last year had to accept a job offer during the period of their student visa.

As far as I understand it, the limits on student visas pertain to how many different degrees a non-EU student could study for while in the UK. The issue was some students kept applying for new visas by studying for a different degree whenever they finished studying for their current degree.

As always, I should say that I am not an immigration solicitor and so these are just preliminary comments. I will have more to say when we receive some expert opinion on this.

Kind regards.

I am not sure how many people here are based in Africa but this is a post that I wrote about our outreach plans for South Africa this coming admissions year.
http://www.thecambridgembaadmissions.co ... hy-africa/

The Director of the MBA Programme and the Director of the Masters of Finance Programme will be visiting Joburg and Cape Town on 26th and 30th July respectively. They will host information sessions and you can find more details and register at the appropriate links below

http://www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/mba/meetus/201 ... etown.html
http://www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/mba/meetus/201 ... sburg.html

Sadly, I won't be attending either of the sessions but I hope they will be of interest to some of the people on this forum.

I am not sure what you mean by the UK being a difficult place for MBAs. I think you will find that globally, there is a lot of pressure on certain types of jobs, so investment banking for one is very badly hit and people are finding it difficult to get jobs regardless of whether they have an MBA, or even have lots of experience. That is not to say that it is impossible to get into these sectors, just that it takes a combination of great determination and strong track record.

In terms of the visa, an MBA from a UK university is effectively, the only route into the UK job market for a non-EU citizen. Non-EU citizens who graduate with an MBA from a UK university have to accept a job offer within the length of their student visa in order to stay in the UK. At the moment, they are not counted towards the quota of non-EU citizens nor are they subject to a labour market test.

The latest employment report will be published soon. The overall numbers are on our website. Electives are finalised throughout the year but you can see the list of this year's electives on the website.

@goddy

You can apply but because you do not meet the minimum requirements, you will be asked to take a proficiency test if you were made an offer. Depending on the results of that proficiency test, we might either ask you to retake the TOEFL or take an English class.

@Ducksworth ---Spouses cannot attend the MBA classes, but they can use some of the university facilities as well as some facilities in colleges, depending on the individual college policy. In Cambridge, the spouses typically self-organise their own events.

Yes, there is a Cambridge Business Students Club which includes students from the MBA, the Masters in Finance and other programmes in the business school.

In addition, there are other clubs such as Finance, Entrepreneurship etc. and a plethora of clubs in the University itself, e.g. Cambridge Entrepreneurs, Cambridge University Technology Entrepreneurship Club etc

We typically invite about 30% of applicants to interview but in this round, there were a lot of strong candidates so there was a higher percentage.

I read a article in business week that the new immigration requirements have had an impact on placement numbers at Judge Business School and about a fourth of Judge's most recent graduating class were looking for a job within three months of graduation.

I would like to know if this situation has improved at all and what are the measures taken by the school towards this as it would really impact the international student community which is about 70% of their total batch strength

Hi,

I want to know about the funding and scholarships available for students in Cambridge also, are there any assistantships available? I have a 730 on GMAT and 4 yrs of IT experience in Oracle. I am financially so weak. I want to join Judge school for my MBA, but if I leave my job, I should completely depend on Loans and Assistant ships. Can you please suggest me if there is any way I can fund my MBA to cover all my living expenses and tution?

Thanks,
Manikanth.

@maxmoju --- you can send an email to mba-enquiries@jbs.cam.ac.uk

@barneyrubble --- I don't know that much about the MPhil Finance so I hesitate to go into more details. I do know that the MPhil is geared towards people who want to go into a research or academic career. We also have the Masters in Finance which is geared towards people with strong academics and experience in the finance sector. Perhaps you can email mba-enquiries@jbs.cam.ac.uk with more details and we can send your details to the appropriate person in Judge.

@badrimalik --- I am not aware of the business week article that you mentioned. Could you post the link? The stats don't look right though but I will reserve comment till I read the article. Having said that, I think it is still too early to assess the impact of the visa regulations on the hiring side.

I am a contrarian and believe that the visa regulations will actually help UK MBAs because now, the only realistic route for a non-EU student who wants to work in the UK is by graduating from a UK MBA programme.

Hi, Cambridge Admission Team!

I have a question about work experience. I hold a master's degree in finance and another master's degree in applied linguistics. However, most of my experience (over 6 years) is translation services (English translations and interpreting). Would this weaken my profile in any way?

Thank you in advance!

Why don't any of the top 3(ish) UK schools (LBS, Oxford, Cambridge) accept the GRE?

I'm coming from a top 10 US school, have a good GPA, a master's degree, and will be applying to the top 5 US MBA programs. I'd love to consider some of these 1-year programs in the UK, but I've only taken the GRE and I don't want to sit for the GMAT just so I can send out one or two more applications.

Are there plans at Cambridge to change this policy in the future?

Welcome to the official University of Cambridge Judge Business School Thread!

Welcome to GMATClub forums, Conrad.

As a Cambridge MBA grad, I had a fantastic time at the Judge Business School.

When I was an applicant, unlike for most other bschools, there was very little information about the Cambridge MBA on discussion forums. It was almost like the bschool world's best kept secret. There was more speculation on the forums than real facts.

I went ahead and applied after a whole lot of independent research. And clichéd as it may sound, the Cambridge experience surpassed my expectations in all aspects - education, social life, networking and career.

So I'm glad to see proactive official initiatives like these to reach out to the global applicant community.

More power to the program and the Cambridge brand. Good luck.
