Research masters

Cambridge Judge Business School offers four research masters programmes, each an integral part of a route to the PhD. Each masters programme covers essential pathway coursework.

The three MPhil programmes are for students without a prior research masters degree. Which MPhil you take will depend on your research interests and background.

The Master of Research (MRes) programme is the foundation year of the PhD for students with prior research experience at masters level in a subject relevant for management research. It is not offered for students taking the Finance pathway.
