Cass has increased its position in the Financial Times Global Executive MBA 2016 rankings, achieving its highest placement for five years.  Cass moved up one place to 31st in the world, while maintaining its position of 5th in the UK.

The increase, which builds on the impressive eight place rise achieved last year, is largely due to the strong salaries and career progression of Cass alumni. The vast majority also report they are satisfied that the aims they set out when starting their course have been achieved.

Last week, The Economist also published its annual “Which MBA?” ranking and Cass moved up two places globally to 52nd and one place nationally to 5th in the UK. The MBA is ranked 2nd in London.  This improvement was largely due to the impressive diversity of industries that recruit Cass students.

The Economist’s ranking is based on several criteria including career opportunities, professional development/ education experience, increase in salary and potential to network, which are assessed through an online questionnaire completed by students and alumni, as well as data collected by business schools.

Dr Sionade Robinson, Associate Dean, MBA Programmes, commented:

“The Cass MBA programme continues to develop and explore educational experiences that equip our MBA graduates with the insights and skills to create extraordinary value for their employers - or investors."

Professor Marianne Lewis, Dean of Cass Business School, commented:

"We are incredibly proud of the continuing success of our MBA alumni across a range of sectors and across the world and look forward to further increasing our connections and engagement of this vibrant and dynamic community".

The latest information on rankings and graduate destinations can be found on the Cass website.
