Management Studies Tripos (MST) Project

MST project team discuss their work with Michael Kitson

The Management Studies Tripos is a one-year management studies course that attracts outstanding undergraduates from the University of Cambridge, who come to us from a variety of disciplines for the last year of their undergraduate studies. For their final project, students work in teams of three with a local organisation addressing a real management problem that the host has identified.

What types of project are possible?

Projects are invited from organisations of all kinds, as long as the scope is well defined and the organisation is a commutable distance from Cambridge. Recent projects have included strategic planning, market analyses, cost-benefit analyses, feasibility studies, competitor reviews and service assessments for a variety of local private and public organisations.

When does it take place?

Students work full-time on the projects over the month of May in teams of three.
