Examination in Management Studies for the M.Phil. Degree

(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 475)

With effect from 1 October 2001

Candidates for this examination may currently choose one of two options; however in recent years very few candidates have chosen the second of these. The amendment to the regulations removes this option.

Regulation 1.

By amending the regulation so as to read:

1. The scheme of examination for the one-year course of study in Management Studies for the Degree of Master of Philosophy shall consist of:

(i) Two written exercises on topics specified by the Degree Committee for the Judge Institute of Management Studies which fall within the field of research methodology;

and

(ii) a thesis of not more than 16,000 words in length, including diagrams, footnotes, and appendices, but excluding bibliography, on a subject approved by the Degree Committee;1

and

(iii) four pieces of submitted work each of which may be either an essay of not more than 4,000 words or an equivalent exercise or exercises, on topics specified by the Degree Committee.

1 With the express permission of the Degree Committee, a candidate may also present in an annex not for examination such primary resource or reference material relating to the subject of the thesis as may be deemed to enhance the potential usefulness of the thesis for those who may consult it.
