School's ethos

Cass people are marked out by their ethical approach. It underpins the way we educate and the way we do business: it is one of the reasons people choose Cass. Ethical business practice is on everyone's lips and we are ahead of the game: we have integrated ethics and sustainability into every course .

Any Cass student will tell you that we expect them not only to learn but also to challenge, to look critically at the world in which they live and work. We constantly question the ethical underpinning of their assumptions and decisions; and that ethical, questioning approach is woven through every element of a Cass education. In addition, Cass runs a series of workshops by Roger Steare, Visiting Professor of Organisational Ethics; and has produced a series of video interviews with academics and leading practitioners called Cass Ethics about the ethical approach to business.

Our staff and students play an active role in their local and wider communities, fundraising, working with community leaders and local young people and taking part in projects such as helping children with learning difficulties and improving literacy among women who have suffered domestic violence.
