Among Business Schools offering a one-year full time MBA programme, Cass is eleventh in the world, eighth in Europe and third in the UK. This position recognises the strength of Cass's academic staff, its international outlook and the success of its graduates.

Professor Paul Curran, Vice-Chancellor of City comments: "I am delighted with Cass's position in this global ranking which further confirms the position of City University's Cass Business School among the leading Business Schools of the world. This substantial rise is a result the commitment to academic excellence both at Cass and within the wider University."

Cass alumni Chris McMonagle and Marca Wosoba both credit their Full Time MBA with transforming their careers.

Cass alumnus Chris McMonagle commented: "The insights I gained during my MBA inspired me to develop a new business idea which I have been able to implement at my sponsoring company. I now head the Investment Transaction Advisory business at Mott MacDonald, providing commercial due diligence and consulting services to private equity and infrastructure funds. The Cass MBA provided me with the environment to generate the idea, the knowledge to deliver the service and the credibility to build the business."

Marca Wosoba says she made the transition from EMEA Marketing Manager for a multi-national to be a Director at RBS as a result of what she learned at Cass. She said: "The MBA gave me the management skills, solid foundation in financial markets and confidence necessary to make the leap. My transition to RBS was a direct result of the MBA Business Research Project that I completed for RBS and the support I received from my mentor at the School was invaluable. As a result, the quality of the project raised my profile within the organisation creating more opportunities to take on different challenges and roles."
