Management Studies at Cambridge
A management environment
No undergraduate business degree by itself can teach someone how to be a competent manager: that comes with experience, and then further education. What Management Studies enables you to do is to study the subjects relevant to management and the environment in which the manager operates, whilst still a full-time student.
You gain a sound understanding of the fundamentals of management and various aspects of management practice, as well as gain practical experience in a real-life context. You acquire the skills that a good manager needs, including the ability to apply critical analysis to management issues, and an awareness of the responsibilities of managers in an economic, social and environmental context.
The value of our course is evident in the successful careers of our graduates. Since its introduction in 1986, students who have taken Management Studies have found little problem in finding the type of employment they seek in industry and commerce. Recent graduates have gone on to careers in consultancy (for private equity and trade), marketing and communications, recruitment (in one case, starting their own consultancy), IT and information systems, and the banking and finance sector (including an investment analyst and a risk analyst).
A stimulating environment
Management Studies is the responsibility of the Judge Business School, one of the top business schools in the world. The Judge Business School provides the library and computing facilities for both carrying out coursework and preparing papers and presentations.
However, amongst the most stimulating resources on the course are your fellow students: they come from different subject areas and have contrasting strengths, enabling you to learn from each other.
