You can read about the employment prospects of the Cambridge class who graduated a year ago at
http://www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/mba/careers/report.html

I should say that career outcomes are very much related to an individual's prior work experience, academics, and also the state of the market. I would say that consulting hiring has increased in Cambridge in the last year.

Hmm, don`t you think average of 7 years of WE is a bit too much and may discourage younger applicants with , say, 3 years of WE from applying ?

It really depends on the quality of your work experience. It is true that most consulting firms take younger candidates. Although the average work experience of our class is 7 years, we do take in students with only three years of work experience if they can demonstrate a level of maturity equal to someone more senior.

It is also true that it becomes more difficult to shift careers the older one gets. However, there are students who make a career transition after many successful years in their industry. These students have to demonstrate a compelling case for their proposed career shift, and also show a high level of adaptability. Most importantly, they have to work hard to network, prepare for case interviews, work on their CVs and cover letters etc.

Hi Conrad,

Where may I find more information about Cambridge's program, with respect to innovation and entrepreneurship?

Thank you

Thanks Conrad to join this thread. I have been following your blog. Infact, I have posted some of your comments about the UK visa in my blog.

Like Enkie, I also have too much of experience...:-) But I feel comfortable to know that I will be associated with more experienced people in the class.

Conrad - I understand that the Cambridge team is visiting New York on July 23rd. Can you please let me know if there is any plan to visit the west coast? Also, if selected for the interview, I would rather prefer a face-to-face interview. Please let me know if there will be a presence of an interview panel on Nov 14th in the US.

There is some information about entrepeneurship on our website but I will admit it is not exactly expressed that clearly. We are working on a set of videos involving MBAs who are interested in entrepreneurship and these will be posted in the next few months (I interviewed the first group last week). Is there a specific question that you have in mind?

We will be visiting the West Coast but later in the year, probably late September early October.

The interview schedules are on our website and yes, if you apply by the first deadline, and are shortlisted, you have the option of an on-campus interview on the 14th of October.

Hey Conrad. In general, do you discourage people who already have a Cambridge degree from applying? I did Part III Maths some years ago.

We do not discourage, or encourage candidates who already have a degree from Cambridge from applying.

Guys...how are things...How is your apping going?

I finished two essays. I must say that I love Cambridge essays, especially "key issues facing organisations". It's very unique and shows the academic maturity.

Now, I am getting into the details. I have one question if anyone is listening here :-)

How the below essay should be used? There are some aspects that I want to highlight but I am not getting an opportunity to highlight it. For example, I have involved in the merger and acquisitions. Should i mention about it here? The general thump rule is that do not answer unless you have to. But I have always been the nut case :-) So what you think..

Please provide information on any aspect of your candidacy that requires further explanation, or information that you would like the Admissions Committee to know (300 word limit).

@talk2vj Sorry we are not attending the San Francisco fair this year because of scheduling clashes but we did hold an information session over dinner in SFO about three weeks ago. Hope you managed to attend that one. If not, the best way to learn more is through our facebook page or by following my twitter feed @CambridgeJBS.

I have also posted an article on our admissions blog (www.thecambridgembaadmissions.com) giving an overview of the class that just started this week. Welcome any comments or questions.

All the best to those who are submitting their applications before the deadline this Friday.

For example, the first essay was definitely different. Given the word limit, it became harder to draft an excellent essay. But I believe, I gave my best shot.

Also, having 11 years of work experience, I could not fit in everything in the resume. And having a strong background in the volunteering, I could not find any place to demonstrate it. I did mention as much as I could under the interest section in CV. I have used up the additional question to highlight other aspects of my background that was necessary so I didn't have any space left to talk about my engagement with so many other non-profit organizations.

Hahha i have the same problem. I also have 11 years of work experience. If we both get admitted and attend, we'll be the old farts. :)
