Financial Times ranks Cass 11th in the world for its Masters degree in finance

First global league table compiled using survey of graduates from class of 2008

Cass Business School, which is part of City University London, has been placed 11th in the world in the inaugural Financial Times 'Masters in finance' rankings. The rankings were compiled using a range of factors, with the most weight being given to a survey of students who graduated in 2008.

Professor Paul Curran, Vice-Chancellor of City University London, said: "I am delighted by our position in the rankings which is a result of our commitment to academic excellence and our standing among the best business schools in the world."

Cass's MSc Programmes Director, Susan Roth, said: "This is fantastic starting point for the School but we strongly expect to improve significantly on our position due to the major changes made in our MSc programme over the last three years.

"These changes include the extensive development of our postgraduate careers service; the addition of several outstanding finance academics with a high-level of industry experience; a redesign of the course and the introduction of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) as an entry requirement. We have also received partnership status from the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute and attained the triple crown of accreditations for business schools (AMBA, EQUIS, AACSB)."
