Graduate Admissions

Teaching

The course offers a combination of modules centred around business and management and of modules and activities centred around creativity, innovation and collaborative leadership. Teaching and learning styles vary, from traditional lectures to interactive workshops and real-life team projects.

One to one supervision

One to one supervision is not provided. Students do not engage in independent research.

The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.

Seminars & classes

Students will normally attend an average of 18 hours of classes per week, as well as number of workshops (for example: academic writing, presentation skills, management consulting, and managing team conflict), and a number of guest speakers’ talks given by experienced industry practitioners, though this will vary depending on the choice of modules. Class tutorials are provided on the quantitative modules such as accounting, finance, operations management and so on.

Feedback

Marks will be given as a percentage. All marks are provisional until confirmed by the Examiners' meeting, normally held in June. Marks can be raised or lowered by the Examiners' meeting. We try our best at the department to give early feedback on marks, but please be aware that the timing of the release of provisional marks may vary greatly from one module to another. The nature and extent of the feedback given will vary from lecturer to lecturer, but students may reasonably expect to receive some indication of the strengths and weaknesses of any work submitted.
