I regard the MPhil in Innovation, Strategy & Organisation as an invaluable first step in my research career. The ISO programme provided me with a rigorous grounding in a range of disciplines, which really assisted the transition from my first degree in psychology to the multidisciplinary management environment of Cambridge Judge Business School. The faculty place a strong emphasis on rigour and imagination, and my work became far more creative as a result. Following the ISO programme, I was successful in getting a highly competitive scholarship from St John's College to study for a PhD at Cambridge Judge Business School.
