University Relations


We work with CJBS and the University’s alumni office to support their staff who are visiting Russia for academic purposes or for student recruitment events.

Our Fireside Chat programme is one forum where visitors from Cambridge can establish a direct dialogue with local alumni. We can also facilitate introductions to Russian business journalists for visiting scholars who seek to promote a broader, public discussion of their research findings.

We organise a “going up” event prior to the start of each academic year where our alumni mix with newly-admitted students and help them to prepare for Cambridge student life.

Finally, current students who find themselves in Russia on their Global Consulting Project or on exchange study tours are welcome to get in touch and join our local events.

Business ideas that need exploring? Cambridge MBA students can help between 17 March – 18 April 2014 !

Each year MBA students at Cambridge Judge Business School complete a Global Consulting Project (GCP) as part of their academic requirement. During the GCP students work with companies like yours for one month, full-time, in teams of four/five. The Projects tackle real management, market and business issues of strategic importance to the company or organisation.

The GCP will run during our Easter break, from 17 March 2014 – 18 April 2014 (up to 100 project days of work). No fee is charged other than out of pocket expenses – any project expenses necessary for the GCP are met by the client and reimbursed directly to the student team.

Proposals can be submitted using the online form at .

Deadline : 16 December 2013.
Any questions, do get in touch –
