Cambridge Campus

Life Sciences Cambridge Campus

Our Cambridge Campus is located in the historic City of Cambridge, with a long tradition of generating academic knowledge. The City's entrepreneurial roots have attracted global pharmaceutical companies and many start-ups.

The current and future investment in Life Sciences in the UK ensures the development of your management skills with partner companies that support the BBI management programmes. Since 2021, Cambridge has become the BBI Life Sciences Campus and will coordinate the online version of International MBA for this academic year 2021.

    Every day is different throughout the year. During the first stage, when students take their common modules, apart from the evening classes from Monday to Thursday, the students also develop their career impact programmes. These programmes have their project meetings at various research centres and participate in extra-curriculum activities.

    For the final semester in Barcelona, each student develops their own academic internship programme depending on their chosen career itinerary chosen. All programmes have the same number of assignments and group work to complete. Typically, the second semester is focused increasing the time spent on students’ career-related activities.
