Cass Executive MBA now ranked tenth in the world by the Financial Times

Annual rankings recognises quality of Cass EMBA programme

Friday, 29 October, 2010

The Financial Times has published the Global Executive MBA rankings for 2010 and Cass has leapt 11 places in the international rankings to be in joint tenth place internationally, compared with 21st place in 2009.

This improvement in the international rankings, as well as the retention of our very high UK (2nd) and European ranking (4th) is very pleasing.

The Financial Times rankings are based on data collected from two separate sources: business schools and alumni who graduated three years previously, in this case, 2007.  There are three areas of achievement in the rankings which are particularly noteworthy: Salary', Career progress rank', and Aims achieved rank'.

The Financial Times notes a 100 percent increase in the average salary of graduates three years on, a notable improvement from 85% in last year's ranking.  The Career progress rank' from 19th place in 2009 to 4th place in 2010 makes clear the School's aim to improve the quality of the careers offering.  In addition, the School's Aims achieved rank' has increased from 28 last year to 21 this year, which means alumni felt their goals were achieved after completing the EMBA.

Malcolm Finn, a Senior Manager at Deloitte and a Cass EMBA alumnus, said: "Cass has a clear strength in strategy and finance and offers a truly global perspective beyond the familiar day to day business challenges.  The EMBA is an exciting experience and the ideas shared among a diverse group of established business leaders and entrepreneurs goes beyond what is usually taught under the name of strategy. The ways of thinking can be immediately applied to our organisations and remains relevant in a changing market."
