Christian Hampel

The MPhil in ISO is the ideal choice for those who aspire to switch from reading novel management ideas to creating them. The programme provides rigorous training in methods coupled with thought-provoking discussions about the most important management problems and theories. I found it fascinating to learn from faculty and students, who are respectively today's and tomorrow's thought-leaders in the field. Needless to say, I continued onto the PhD programme at Cambridge Judge Business School to take the next step on the journey towards an academic career.

The MPhil in ISO is an essential step in preparing for an academic career in research. It provides a rigorous foundation in theory, helps acquaint you with the core findings and debates in the literature, and encourages you to think creatively about pressing issues in the field. The faculty who teach on the programme are outstanding, and the chance to experience college life in Cambridge is itself a very important part of the overall experience.
