About the Faculty of Management

At all times we place great emphasis on making sure that our theories are well founded academically and closely related to real world practice. Our proximity to the City of London is a great advantage in this sense.

It helps us to analyse and understand the extent to which our work is applicable to the financial and professional services firms with which we have ongoing relationships.

We conduct research and education in all the main areas of management studies:

Of course, many of the most interesting issues in business life cross these categories and our work takes this into account.

Through acting as a thought leader in all these areas, we play a significant role in maintaining Cass reputation as an intellectual hub for the City of London.
