The Immerse Cambridge Management Summer School is a brilliant way to expand your experience of the subject, to go beyond what you have studied at school and test out life at business school. In addition to introducing key management theories, the programme is interactive and example-led, exploring fascinating real life examples.

The Immerse Summer Management Programme at Cambridge will introduce students to concepts and ideas of organisational behaviour and the management of organisations, as well as topics of finance, strategy, marketing and leadership. Students will explore key concepts of financial management, how strategic analysis helps firms succeed, how is marketing used to serve customers demands and help firms differentiate amongst others and succeed. Students who really understand these key theories that underpin management studies will excel in exploring these frameworks to different business scenarios.

By using a variety of different resources such as business articles, lectures and talks, students will develop their knowledge of the study of management and discuss together the insights gained. The classes are similar in style to the ‘Case Study Method’ used at Harvard Business School – introducing students to the method of analysing business decisions whilst equipping them with the technical skills required to explore topical issues.
