Course content

The MRes in Management Studies is offered by Cambridge Judge Business School as a full-time period of study and research, during which students with experience at master's level will receive training in research methods and the foundations of their chosen discipline. The goal of the MRes programme is to lay the foundations that will enable students to contribute to the academic debate in their discipline through publications in leading journals, which they will develop during their PhD.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme, students will have:

  • gained in-depth knowledge of research methods used in management research;
  • developed strong awareness of the current academic debates in their chosen discipline, and in-depth knowledge of the underlying theories of management;
  • gained practical knowledge of management research through close supervision of their dissertation project;
  • developed strong methodological expertise across a spectrum of research methods and applied these methodologies as part of the dissertation research project;
  • developed a strong awareness of the imperative of social impact with management research, through a dissertation; and
  • received training in transferable skills, eg communication skills, presentation skills, writing skills, research project management skills, literature review skills.


In order to continue to the PhD, MRes students are required to achieve an average mark of 60 per cent in each module separately and 70 per cent in the dissertation alone. Note that, as for all Cambridge PhDs, the first year of the PhD (the year after the MRes) is still probationary and students will be required to pass a first-year assessment.
