How the MPhil in SMO links to the PhD programme

The MPhil in Strategy, Marketing & Operations programme is one of the School’s specialist research MPhils and prepares you to continue on to a Cambridge Judge Business School PhD via a number of our PhD pathways.

To continue to the PhD programme, students must achieve 70% or more overall (those students taking the dissertation option must also achieve at least 70% on the dissertation component). As part of the application process for continuation to the PhD, students will be interviewed by a panel of faculty members in January.
