Diploma in Management Studies

The regulations for the Diploma in Management Studies (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 511) have been amended as set out below. The purpose of the amendments is to provide a more explicit statement of the examination requirements by including in the regulations a reference to the project report, which until now has been subsumed under course-work, and by making it clear that the project involves independent research on the part of the candidate. The regulations have been amended, with effect from 1 October 1998, as follows:

Regulations 3 and 5.

 By amending the regulations so as to read:

 3. The examination for the Diploma shall consist of:

 (a) written papers as follows:1

  M1. Marketing and organizational behaviour.
M2. Quantitative methods and operations management.
M3. Economics and finance.

 (b) course-work, as specified in Regulation 4;

 (c) a report of a research project undertaken by the candidate, as specified in Regulation 5.

 5. Each candidate shall submit to the Examiners, not later than the last Monday of Full Easter Term, a report of a research project, of not more than 3,000 words, excluding footnotes and bibliography. The subject of the research project shall be chosen from a list of approved subjects which shall be announced by the Director of the Judge Institute not later than the last day of Full Lent Term. Reports shall be in typewritten form (unless a candidate has obtained permission from the Management Studies Syndicate to present a report in manuscript). Each candidate will be required to sign a declaration that the project and the report on it are his or her own work, unaided except as may be specified in the declaration, and that the report does not contain material that has already been used to any substantial extent for a comparable purpose; if two or more candidates have undertaken a project in collaboration, they will each be required to indicate the extent of their contribution.

1 These papers are Papers M1-3 from the Management Studies Tripos.
