The MPhil in Innovation, Strategy & Organisation is an interdisciplinary programme exploring innovation and change through three interconnecting themes: innovation and work practices, innovation and strategic change, and new organisational forms.
The programme seeks to provide the methodological and theoretical foundation for further research and is specifically aimed at students intending to continue to a PhD degree, whether in Cambridge or elsewhere. Students who complete the MPhil and proceed to the Cambridge Judge Business School PhD programme can apply to have their MPhil year counted towards their residence requirements for the PhD.
The MPhil in Innovation, Strategy & Organisation programme consists of:
- three core courses, one for each of the three areas of Innovation, Strategy and Organisation
- two research methodology core courses
- a specialist elective
- 12,000 word dissertation
Assessment will be by written examination, project, or course work, depending upon the nature of the particular course. Each course carries the same weighting towards the final mark. The 12,000 word dissertation is equivalent to three courses.
