Entrepreneurial education at the University of Cambridge

The Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) at Cambridge Judge Business School aims to spread the spirit of enterprise to both the University of Cambridge community and to wider national and international audiences through the creation and delivery of a range of educational activities that inspire and build skills in the practise of Entrepreneurship.

An extensive network of experienced entrepreneurs and practitioners are invited to share their knowledge, insight and experience on programmes, workshops, seminars, modules and events for new and aspiring entrepreneurs every year. In order to open up these insights to an even broader audience, CfEL has produced over 500 digital resources, including videos and podcasts.

The core programmes are designed to develop the entrepreneurial skills and knowledge of students, graduates, researchers and aspiring entrepreneurs supporting them to start their own businesses whether these are technology, social, creative or not-for-profit enterprises. The programmes are Enterprise Tuesday, ETECH Projects, Enterprisers, Ignite and the Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship. Since 2003, more than 16,000 people have participated in CfEL programmes and events; and over 200 businesses have been set up by CfEL’s alumni.
