Course content

The MPhil in Strategy, Marketing and Operations (SMO) is an intensive nine-month programme that prepares you for continuation to the Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) PhD in the fields of strategy, marketing or operations.

Educational aims of the programme are to prepare students for doctoral work in the fields of strategy, marketing or operations at CJBS (the programme is an integral part of the CJBS PhD programme for these fields, by:

  • providing teaching in research methodology, in particular in econometrics and mathematical modelling;
  • providing teaching in foundational subjects, such as economics; and
  • providing research seminars in which students will learn about the current debates in their field of specialisation and about the canonical literature that underpins these debates.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course students should have:

  • acquired or consolidated foundational knowledge and methodological skills necessary for research in their chosen field of specialisation;
  • demonstrated an ability to critique research papers; and
  • presented their own ideas in a public forum and learned to contribute constructively within an international environment.

Continuing

Following their application for PhD continuation by the end of the first term, students will be interviewed by a panel of faculty members early in the second term. The PhD admissions committee will make PhD admission decisions on the basis of the interview report, the strength of the overall application with particular weight on academic reference letters and the performance in the Michaelmas term MPhil courses, and the fit of the student's research interest with faculty expertise. Students will receive confirmation of a PhD offer in February.

All admitted PhD students are fully funded. PhD offers are usually conditional on the final performance on the MPhil – candidates are required to achieve over 70 per cent in their MPhil. Students are also required to achieve at least 70 per cent in their dissertation (if any).
