Cambridge Diploma in Management Studies?Watch
a. What, exactly, does a diploma of this sort entail? He mentioned something about it being the first year of an undergrad management course.
b. How did he get into Cams with a 2:2? He graduated from Manchester with a degree in Economics.
c. What is the point of this diploma? Can he join the MPhil at a later stage (I find this hard to believe considering Cambridge wants a first for this course I think).
It's not that I disbelieve him, it's just I don't see why he'd want to do a diploma and I'm highly surprised he was admitted with a 2:2.
Your friend can apply for the MPhil programme but he will probably need a First Class mark for the Diploma.
