A PhD at Cass
As a PhD student you want to perform research in a world-class business school and environment. That's exactly what we offer at Cass, where research is fundamental to the School's strategy, objectives and reputation.
This deep commitment to research extends across our three faculties, Management, Finance, and Actuarial Science. All three faculties apply the highest standards to a comprehensive array of research centres and academic and practitioner-oriented research seminars.
The City of London is just minutes away, so you benefit from unrivalled access to real-world experience and knowledge. Indeed, it is our close links to the City that has enabled Cass to emerge as the intellectual hub for the City of London.
A high-ranking reputation
The Financial Times has ranked our PhD offering in the top 40 in the world every year since 2007. And in late 2010 the most comprehensive study of its kind, published by the European Financial Management Journal, ranked our finance research third in Europe.
Rigorous, stimulating and international
Within this context, we offer a combination of rigorous PhD-level training, supervised by leading researchers in the field. As a consequence of this excellence, over 100 Alumni PhDs have entered top business schools and leading commercial organisations worldwide.
Crucially, our research activity brings together a wide variety of international staff and students. This diverse range of experience and background creates a uniquely stimulating environment. Our internationalism is reflected by our membership of the Alliance of Management Schools in European Capitals (AMSEC). There is every chance that this could provide you with opportunities to collaborate with fellow schools in Paris, Brussels, Rome, Berlin, Madrid and Oslo.
