Cass Business School has launched its first online degree. The new MSc in Global Finance combines the quality and intensity of a Cass specialist Masters with the convenience and flexibility of studying online from anywhere in the world.

The course will provide students with a comprehensive grasp of the principles and theories of finance, as well as their practical application in real-life corporate situations on a local and global scale.

Professor Andrew Clare, Course Director of the MSc in Global Finance, said: “The Cass MSc in Global Finance will equip them with a combination of in-depth knowledge and analytical skills in a rapidly changing and ever more complex business environment.

“This exciting new degree will enable a larger number of students to experience the unique Cass approach to learning which blends world-class academic research with innovative education and practical application.”

Consisting of twelve modules the course can be completed over two years of part-time study. Each module - ranging from investment strategy, to global real estate, to corporate finance - has been developed by a Cass academic who is an expert in their field. Their research and industry experience directly informs the content and delivery of the course.

The online delivery of the Cass MSc in Global Finance will enable professionals to set themselves apart in an increasingly competitive labour market by achieving an advanced qualification, without having to take a break from work.

Sam Brenton, Director of Digital Learning at Cass, said: “While distance learning is not new, this course is distinguished by the high levels of support students receive. Our approach provides a rigorous, practical and participative experience. All the materials, activities and assessments are delivered in our modern, easy to use digital platform, and the modules are taught online by top Cass faculty. Students will study alongside, and network with, others from around the world.”

Students taking the MSc in Global Finance become full members of the Cass community with access to support services including expert careers advice, extensive library resources and the use of the campus facilities when in London. After graduation, students join our active alumni network of 38,000 people across over 160 countries.
