Thursday, 3 December, 2009

Andrew Doman, President and Chief Executive of Russell Investments, one of the world’s largest investment houses, was at Cass recently for the UK launch of their new global rotation programme aimed at attracting the best MBA students in the world.

The two-year programme enables successful candidates to gain experience across a number of different departments such as the office of the CEO, Investments, consulting and advisory services in a number of Russell’s 20 offices around the world including Seattle, London and Sydney.

Russell Investments is a global investment management company employing more that 1,700 staff worldwide who work on behalf some of the world’s largest investors in over 45 countries to deliver their goals managing more that US$151 billion in assets.

Andrew Doman said: I was very keen that Russell was reaching out to some of the very best schools in the world. We took advice on the best business schools in the UK and as a result we are presenting at Cass Business School and London Business School. We’re looking for evidence of strong academics but, just as important, strong leadership capabilities. We’ll be looking for exceptional individuals who have done exceptional things in their lives.

Sarah Juillet, Head of Post Graduate Recruitment at Cass said: "Attracting companies of the calibre of Russell Investments onto campus gives our students a fantastic opportunity to learn, first hand, about the organisations that they aspire to join. Being chosen as one of only two business schools in the UK being considered for this programme is testament to the world class reputation of our MBA programme.
