All students are required to take three Part I units in their first year. What overall combination of Part I units you choose is important as it determines which major subjects and which specific modules you will be eligible to take at Part II. In general, to keep your options open it is advisable to make sure that you are taking at least two subjects that lead to a major at Part II.
You will need to check the particular Part I requirements of your degree scheme (see box on right) when making your choices.
The Part I modules taught by the Department of Management Science are as follows:
In the Michaelmas Term, worth 40% of a Part I unit:
MSCI 100 Introduction to Business Analytics
MSCI 101 Statistics and Computing for Management
In Lent Term, and 40% of a Part I unit:
MSCI 110 Introduction to Business Analytics (for students taking MNGT110 and MNGT120)
You could make up one of your Part I units by combining either MSCI 100 + MSCI 102 or MSCI 101 + MSCI 103. Note that it is not possible to take both MSCI 100 and MSCI 101. It is possible to take two 60% modules, but this means you will need to choose another 40% Michaelmas term module from a different department, such as Accounting and Finance or Organisation, Work & Technology.
MSCI 102 and 105, and 103 all lead to Part II majors.
Finalising your choices
You can discuss your choice of modules with the Part I Director of Studies, Mark Stevenson. A good opportunity for major students to do this is at the 'Meet your major department' event on the Tuesday of Intro Week.
Students on Business Studies, BBA, European BBA and related programmes who are taking MNGT 110 or 120 can take our Part I Statistics module in the Lent term in order to fit into their timetable. MSCI 110 is only available to students taking these Management modules.
