During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis all face-to-face teaching at Cass Business School has been moved online until the autumn 2020 to ensure the safety of students, delegates and staff. We continue to work with the evolving situation.

Our staff, faculty and consultants remain dedicated to supporting our clients during this challenging time; please feel free to reach out with any questions or requests to CassCCE@city.ac.uk.
