Hear all about the Cranfield School of Management experience through the people who have lived it: our students, alumni and the organisations with whom we work. 

MBA Programmes

"Cranfield really concentrate on personal, group and leadership development. They recognise what few other universities do; being successful in your career is as much about emotional intelligence as it is about intellectual ability. Cranfield is the right place for you if you want to be a really well rounded leader."

Lily Rattray - Master of Business Administration Full-time - Cranfield University

Master's Courses

"Cranfield is a wholly post graduate business school, so there is an increased level of professionalism and knowledge required. Understanding that professors are active researchers, as well as working within the industry means we as students benefit from real time updates about the industry trends while studying."

Janki Bharat Mehta - MSc Strategic Marketing - MSc student

PhD Programme

"I chose Cranfield because of its twin focus on research rigour and relevance to practice. Also, for the excellent opportunities that exist for collaboration with faculty. Not least, it gave me the ability to balance my studies with the rest of my life - at that time I was running in the ultra-distance team for England. For me, the value of the Cranfield experience lay in its holistic approach to management education, the opportunities for international collaborations, and the lifelong friendships I made with faculty and students."

Siri Terjesen - PhD student - Assistant Professor at Kelley School of Business, Indiana University, USA

Executive DBA 

"Someone once said to me, early in my DBA, that you will do your best work when you have graduated. That has certainly been the case and it helped to equip me to lead my business through very difficult economic times."

Andy Wood - DBA student - Chief Executive at Adnams

Open Executive Programmes

“The Cranfield IT Leadership Programme provided a way to checkpoint my own capabilities, working in a senior IT position for Ordnance survey, against expert input from the Cranfield tutors, external speakers from industry and other course delegates.”

Andrew Radcliffe FBCS CITP – Cranfield IT Leadership Programme - Head of Development, Digital Products Group, Ordnance Survey 

Cranfield Executive Development

“Cranfield’s approach was to understand our business, understand our need, and then to co-design a programme that would develop our leaders.  It was genuinely starting from first principles and a blank sheet of paper.”

Craig Darroch – Head of Learning and Development, BG Group
