Cass launches unique seminars for prospective MBA students

Sessions focus on the challenges facing modern leaders

Wednesday, 10 November, 2010

Prospective MBA students can find out what it takes to be a successful modern leader at a new series of seminars being launched by Cass.

Professor Veronica Hope Hailey, Associate Dean of the MBA programme at Cass, said the sessions are designed to give candidates an essential insight into both leadership and the MBA teaching style.  These seminars are a good opportunity for people thinking of studying an MBA to find out what it takes to become a successful modern-day leader, she said.

The seminars are free, interactive and aim to help candidates identify the traits of effective leaders.  As well as exploring some of the concepts behind leadership, the workshops will also give candidates a taste of the interactive teaching style of the MBA, and the high-calibre learning environment at Cass.

The seminars are due to take place every three months and are open to anyone interested in studying for an MBA.  Up to 30 places are available at each session.

The first will be hosted by Visiting Lecturer at Cass, Julia Newell, who is also founder and managing director of Leadership and Learning Ltd.  It will include topics on personal leadership style, methods for getting the most out of colleagues, and the common causes of derailment for leaders.

Ethics is the focus of the second leadership seminar, which will investigate the ethical challenges facing organisations and individuals.  It will be hosted by Visiting Professor at Cass, and corporate philosopher, Roger Steare.

The first MBA Leadership seminar is planned for Thursday 11 November 2010 from 18:00 - 21:00 and the Organisational Ethics seminar is set for Thursday 3 February 2011 from 18:30 21:00.  All sessions will be run at Cass Business School, 106 Bunhill Row, London, EC4V 3PQ.
