Management Studies Fact File
Management Studies at Cambridge is available as a one-year course offered at the undergraduate level as a Part II: that is, after having read another undergraduate subject in the College for two or three years.
The course is wide ranging, and broadly addresses the roles and responsibilities of a manager across social, economic, political and environmental contexts. Teaching and supervisions are based in the spectacular main building of the University of Cambridge Judge Business School.
You cannot apply directly to study Management Studies at Cambridge as it is only taught at Part II level. You have to apply for another undergraduate subject and successfully complete two or three years of that tripos. You can then apply to transfer to Management Studies for your final year.
Entry onto the management course is highly competitive, with only 70 places available each year in the University as a whole. Places are therefore not guaranteed when you enter the University, and admission is based on both academic merit and motivation to pursue a managerial career. Those wishing to study Management at the undergraduate level may enter through any undergraduate course, although in the past, Engineering, Economics and Law have proven to be the most popular routes.
If you are interested in studying Management as part of your Cambridge degree, we will arrange for you to meet the Director of Studies in Management or one of her colleagues during your interviews. However, you do not need to specify Management on your application form to be allowed to compete for a place after you have finished Part I.
