Cass welcomes new Full-time MBA cohort

Thirty nationalities are represented in this year’s class

Cass Business School, part of City, University of London welcomed its new intake for its Full-time MBA programme in London this week. Thirty nationalities are represented in this year’s cohort.

With an average of seven years’ experience in the workplace and an average age of 30 years, Cass has attracted fresh talent from a range of sectors including finance, manufacturing, IT, not-for-profit, education and healthcare, all seeking to maximise their leadership potential and accelerate their careers.

The cohort received a formal welcome from Professor Paolo Volpin, Interim Dean of Cass and had the opportunity to meet teaching and professional staff from across the School. The agenda of the six-day induction featured introductory talks, team building and professional development workshops, followed by an informal networking dinner at trendy London restaurant, The Bleeding Heart.

Professor Paolo Volpin, Interim Dean, Cass Business School commented:

“I am pleased to welcome the latest cohort of the Cass Full-time MBA to our Cass community – it’s a fantastic group, who are wonderfully diverse both in terms of nationalities and professional backgrounds.  Our world-leading Cass MBA is a fantastic opportunity for these high calibre students to step out of their comfort zone and lead the adventure.  I wish them all the very best as they embark on their exciting journey.”

Professor Steve Thomas, Associate Dean, MBA Programmes added:

“I am delighted to welcome yet another excellent class of students to our exciting and transformative Full-time MBA programme in London.   As well as management consultants, software engineers and project managers, we also have a number of entrepreneurs, a naval officer, a Hollywood casting manager and a police officer.  Each of these students will not only derive enormous value from, but also add great value to, this highly stimulating programme of studies.”

The year-long full-time MBA programme runs until the autumn of 2020.  A unique feature of the programme is that it invites alumni return each year for life to follow an elective of their choice.

“We see this opportunity as the start of a lifelong relationship with the School and new students also benefit from the opportunity to study alongside alumni,” said Professor Thomas.
