[Education] Study Social Enterprise and Community Development

We're grateful to Cory Way for introducing the "Master of Studies (MSt) in Social Enterprise and Community Development" - a two-year, part-time degree taught and administered by the Institute of Continuing Education and the Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge.

The degree is designed for people who have full-time jobs but who wish to enhance their professional qualifications through two years of part-time management education at one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the world.

Potential applicants may find the following helpful:

Is this course for me?
The degree programme is designed for those who are, or aspire to be, chief executives, senior managers, policy makers, academics or entrepreneurs in social enterprise. Whilst most applicants will have significant work experience, we also encourage applications from candidates who possess exceptional promise at the earlier stages of their careers. Applications from across all sectors, industries, cultures, backgrounds and nations are welcome.

What will I gain?
This dynamic programme develops executive skills in leadership, management, critical evaluation and research. Students acquire specialised management education and skills from first-class faculty during the following courses in the first year:
  • (1) Business and Project Management;
  • (2) Finance and Enterprise;
  • (3) People, Organisations and Leadership;
  • (4) The Social and Political Context of Social Enterprise and Community Development;
  • (5) Contemporary Challenges and Opportunities in Social Enterprise and Community Development.

  • During the second year, students prepare a dissertation of their own choosing with direct supervision from faculty. Numerous guest speakers and diverse fellow students also enhance the programme. Successful students will earn a Master of Studies (MSt) in Social Enterprise and Community Development from the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.

    Can I work full-time and still pursue the degree?
    The course is taught during seven short residential teaching blocks over two years in Cambridge, England. Residential teaching periods range from three to ten days. Attendance during these residential sessions is required. Applicants are encouraged to review the dates listed in the programme materials to ensure that they can fulfil the residency requirements. During non-residential periods students receive faculty supervision and feedback via the internet.
